sasakure.UK grew up heavily influenced by the 8-bit and 16-bit sounds found in electronic games of that time. It was then after he joined the boys choir during his school years that he first encountered the works of many of Japan’s most respected lyricists and poets. He then found himself strongly drawn to songwriting, and through diligent self-study and experimentation, started to create his own musical compositions.
However, sasakure.UK did not limit his output to just sound creation, but also worked in such varied mediums as “dot” animation, photography, calligraphic illustration, package artwork, and video production, garnering an impressive level of respect and attention for his multiple talents.
Additionally, through his skillful and meticulous use of popular vocal synthesis programs like the Miku Hatsune “Vocaloid” software, he continued to receive even more praise from new fans both old and new to his music, which finally lead to the release of his major label debut album entitled “Do Vocaloids Dream Of Doomsday Bird?” In a nutshell, he is an artist active in a wide range of areas, truly a product of the social networking generation and a contemporary artist to keep an eye out for.
