Masayoshi Fujita is a Japanese vibraphone player based in Hyogo. He first learned how to play the drums, followed by extensive vibraphone training which led to writing his own jazz and electronic-influenced compositions. Having released more ambient, electronic recordings under the alias el fog, Masayoshi began to experiment outside of traditional vibraphone styles, preparing his instrument with pieces of metal, strips of foil and other objects in the search for new possibilities that resulted in new sounds that expanded the vibraphone spectrum without eroding the instrument’s intrinsic character.
He has released four LPs on Erased Tapes including Stories (2013), Apologues (2015), Book of Life (2018) and Bird Ambience (2021) and has collaborated with electronic producers including Jan Jelinek and Guy Andrews.
Recent scoring work includes campaigns for skincare and beauty brand Aesop, and the furniture company Ariake.
