Artists

Emamouse

Emamouse has been recognized as one of the most unique figures in Tokyo’s underground experimental music scene. Her playful sounds often combine “denpa”, a type of Japanese music that features off-key vocals, nonsensical lyrics and an over-the-top tune, and warped MIDI pop songs that recall classic Japanese video game aesthetics. Always hiding behind her signature felt mask, she emerges herself in games and virtual spaces to escape reality.

IKU

Johanna Odersky a.k.a IKU is a Frankfurt-based artist whose interests and music is circulated around the aesthetic form of recursion. Currently studying Fine Arts at Städelschule, she uses this approach as a loose structure for creating, as well as erasing, mood and meaning. Recontextualization and self-reference are used to bring to mind different time frames and an alternative space to our linear histories and understanding of being.

Lilium Kobayashi

Lilium Kobayashi is an artist who lives in Tokyo, and is part of the Pink Queendom collective.
