Aoki satoru ( アオキサトル )

I am experimenting with producing a ghost sound (Lazy, painful, scary, sad) from an acoustic bass.
I am interested in “Prepared Bass, Improvisation, Experimental Music, Field Recording”.

[jp] アコースティック・ベースから 猥雑な音 ( だるい せつない こわい さみしい ) を 出す 実験を しています。『 プリペアド・ベース、即興演奏、実験音楽、フィールドレコーディング 』 などに 興味があります。


My main stages are “From My Room to the Net” and “Comic Market”, a doujinshi event held twice a year in Tokyo.

I invented the prepaid glove *1 (very self-proclaimed).

[jp] プリペアド・グローブ *1 を 創案 しました(超自称)

≪ This is an impulse (performance) using a fretless Fender Bass VI and Prepared glove ≫

*1 What is Prepared glove? It is a glove for Prepared Bass.

I was invited by musicians from various countries to collaborate with them. I am grateful for that.
