Maria Takeuchi is a multi-instrumentalist composer, who came all the way to New York from a small town in Japan to loose her endless passion for music. Maria’s synesthetic composition, which appeals to other senses beyond hearing, expresses own philosophy and emotions as if to paint on canvas by colored sound.
Through experience in wide-range genre, her music has a taste of 80s synth pop and modern art digital rock featuring percussive vocoding, sampled beats and modulated tones.
Maria released her first composition album “Doppelgänger” in 2012. This six-track minimal composition shows merging the contrast between analog and digital, classical and electronic, harmony and disharmony with a refined avant-garde touch. Second track ‘Grey Water’ was inspired by the exhibition “INDEPENSENSE, Fabbrica Eos” held in Milan, Italy by Giuseppe Mastromatteo.
Now she collaborates with art director Ai Kobayashi as Project ”O” and make experimental art films in order to pursue audio-visual experiences.
