Tumo with Fernando Kabusacki


Tumo (Yuma Takeshita, Yuji Ishihara)

- Yuma Takeshita (electro-bass, self-made instruments)

prof 1 copy

Born in Osaka in 1982,

Yuma Takeshita started playing experimental / improvised music around 2001.

After moving to Tokyo in 2011 he began constructing his own instruments by modifying an electronic-bass guitar with different sound modules and machines.

In addition, he has been providing technical cooperation for other artists’ exhibitions in recent years.

・"the most impressive was Takeshita, who fluently improvised with his electronically extended instrument. Since the 1970s, free improvisation has been one of the biggest challenges in the field of live electronic music and new instruments with a lineage of novel attempts such as Gordon Mumma’s Ambivex(*1) and Nic Collins’ Trombonepropelled Electronics(*2). It was obvious that what Takeshita played was more than a gadget, but an instrument that reflected actual playing experience in unpredictable situations and enabled him to achieve a distinct musical voice.“ - https://www.realtokyo.co.jp/en/performance/bar-isshee-sendagi_june-5-2018/

・”he began building his own electronic bass, an instrument that slowly developed through his love of modified sounds and textures. It would go on to become a large component of his music and aid him in his endeavors to eschew traditional electronic creation.“ - https://noogatoday.6amcity.com/the-tape-deck-june-2017/



- Yuji Ishihara (percussion, drums)


Born 1986 in Osaka, Yuji Ishihara is a drummer, percussionist and improviser. In 2006, Ishihara’s desire to play freely led him to form The Freeform Improvising Group Featuring Tutan The Khamuns which played widely in the Kansai area. More recently, his focus is on developing an idiosyncratic style on the drum kit exploring techniques around ideas of scratching, hitting, rolling, and repelling. While actively supporting various bands and musicians, he also releases his own solo and leader projects.
