Yosi Horikawa- Bubbles

Drop shit and see what you can make out of it
We know most of you will agree with us when we say that musicians are aural architects of sorts. They take what most of us might at first see as something mundane, but then, like an architect screws with shapes and space, manipulates the noise into something pleasant and inspiring. But who would have thought that architectural training would translate to incredible music production and construction. Enter Yosi Horikawa, who started making music at 12 years old. This Tokyo native went to school for architecture. His bio gives us insight into the diverse background of this dude: "While some may think this to be an unusual path for someone who displayed such musical ingenuity at a young age, it was his fascination with sound which led him to the subject and in turn to his current occupation within architectural acoustics. The music Yosi makes draws deeply from these early experiments by bringing unusual found sounds into his compositions, sounds which often form the core of his songs and give them a truly unique organic quality. Whether it be birds chirping in the forest, the everyday sounds of a city or even the noises your kitchen utensils can make, everything is a potential sound source to Yosi."
