Masayoshi Fujita

When Japanese-born, Berlin-based vibraphonist Masayoshi Fujita began to prepare his instrument with pieces of metal, strips of foil and other objects, he created a brand new sound without eroding the vibraphone’s intrinsic character. His recent collaboration with Jan Jelinek brought many new listeners and a lot of attention from experimental music fans around the world on recommendation of The Wire. ‘Apologues’, his new release with Erased Tapes, sees Masayoshi use an array of instruments besides his lead instrument – such as the violin, cello, flute, clarinet, French horn, accordion, piano and snare drum played by friends, but arranged by Masa himself.
