project room: OORUTAICHI

OORUTAICHI performs his own progressive form of ‘drifting folklore music’ combining elements of dance, folk and pop. Singing with a palpable joy in his own invented language, while at the same time mashing and mixing driving base-lines with disco-kicks and synthesised freestyle beats. OORUTAICHI hails from Osaka and has been recording and performing since 1999. He received critical acclaim both in Japan and abroad for his first album YORI, YOYO (2003) and has since toured the United Kingdom, Europe and United States. He is making his debut in Australia for the opening of SuperDeluxe@Artspace at The Biennale of Sydney. Here's sample of his sound mixes and video installation.
