The members of Minamo(Keiichi Sugimoto and Tetsuro Yasunaga) have known Moskitoo (Sanae Yamasaki) for many, many years and have worked together in all sorts of ways. They have not, however, performed a live set or recorded together before what has become Superstition. Superstition is a gathering of close friends creating music they love to create and exploring the small crevices and details of electric, electronic, and acoustic sounds. While the songs sound intentionally composed and arranged, the actual recording process was quite spontaneous and generative.
Minamo has a wonderful back catalog of releases on 12k, Room 40 and the all-too-short-lived Apestaartje. Their music is known to incorporate a large amount of interesting instruments and sound-making objects. Dreamy and fractured, beautiful and slightly unsettling. Moskitoo adds a vocal element not heard before in Minamo’s music bringing an angelic air to the scattered earthen sound.
