Biography

[edit]

Hosono is the grandson of Masabumi Hosono, the only Japanese passenger and survivor of the sinking of RMS
Titanic. Hosono first came to attending in Nippon every bit the bass player of the psychedelic rock band Apryl Fool, aslope drummer Takashi Matsumoto, who released the album
The Apryl Fool
in 1969. Hosono and Matsumoto then formed the influential folk rock group Happy Finish with Eiichi Ohtaki and Shigeru Suzuki.[5]
One of the songs he composed for Happy End, “Kaze wo Atsumete” (1971), afterwards appeared in the American film
Lost in Translation
and on its soundtrack in 2003.[vi]
Afterward
Happy End
disbanded effectually 1974, Hosono worked with Suzuki and a loose association of artists making “exotica”-style music nether the title
Tin Pan Aisle.

His interest in electronic music also dates back to the early on 1970s, when he performed the electric bass for Inoue Yousui’s folk pop rock album
Ice World
(1973) and Osamu Kitajima’south progressive/psychedelic rock anthology
Benzaiten
(1974), both of which were electronic rock records utilizing synthesizers, electric guitars, and in the latter, electronic drums and rhythm machines.[seven]
[8]

In 1977, Hosono invited Ryuichi Sakamoto and Yukihiro Takahashi to work on his exotica-flavoured album
Paraiso, which included electronic music produced using the Yamaha CS-80 polyphonic synthesizer and ARP Odyssey synthesizer. The ring was named “Harry Hosono and the Xanthous Magic Ring” and, having been recorded in late 1977,
Paraiso
was released in early on 1978.[9]
The three worked together over again for the 1978 electronic album
Pacific, which included an early version of the song “Cosmic Surfin'”.[10]

In 1978, he released an innovative electronic soundtrack for a fictional Bollywood motion picture,
Cochin Moon, together with artist Tadanori Yokoo and future YMO band members Ryuichi Sakamoto and Hideki Matsutake. Inspired by a trip to Republic of india and “the exotic, luxurious, and seemingly wonder-filled scenarios played out in Indian cinemas”, information technology was an experimental “electro-exotica” album fusing exotic Indian music (reminiscent of Ravi Shankar and Bollywood music) with electronic music, including an early “synth raga” vocal entitled “Hum Ghar Sajan” (from a Guru Granth Sahib phrase).[xi]
The same year, he contributed to Sakamoto’s vocal “1000 Knives” for his solo album,
Thousand Knives, which experimented with fusing electronic music with traditional Japanese music in early 1978.[12]

He was one of the first producers to recognize the appeal of video game sounds and music. YMO’s cocky-titled debut in 1978 contained substantial video game sounds and afterwards YMO disbanded an early project was an album simply titled
Video Game Music
containing mixed and edited Namco arcade game music and sounds.
Video Game Music
was released in 1984 every bit an early example of a chiptune record[13]
and the first video game music album.[14]
That same yr, he also produced the theme vocal for Hayao Miyazaki’s pop anime flick
Nausicaä of the Valley of the Current of air, “Kaze no Tani no Naushika”, with vocals past actress-vocaliser Narumi Yasuda.[15]
In the belatedly 80s and early 90s, the influence of world music on his music deepened, and he worked with international singers and musicians such as Amina Annabi.

He has produced a number of brusk-term ring projects every bit a ring member. His kickoff post-YMO band was Friends of Earth. As with most of his projects he combines musical styles he’south interested in. F.O.East. seemed to be a combination of funk and techno, and included a collaboration with James Chocolate-brown and Maceo Parker for a remake of the song “Sex Automobile”. Another notable band project was 1995’s Love, Peace & Trance. Members were Mimori Yusa (“Love”), Miyako Koda (“Peace”), Haruomi Hosono (“&”) and Mishio Ogawa (“Trance”).

In the 1990s he started the Daisyworld characterization to release a wide range of experimental artists from Japan and the rest of the world. Hosono collaborated on many of the releases, such equally Earth Standard, a trip into Americana; HAT, a supergroup (the acronym stands for Hosono, Atom Centre, Tetsu Inoue), and “Quiet Logic”, past Mixmaster Morris and Jonah Sharp. The Orb also paid tribute with a series of remixes including the notorious “Hope You lot Choke on Your Whalemeat”.

In 2002 Haruomi formed the duo Sketch Show with his YMO bandmate Yukihiro Takahashi. They have released two albums, one of which,
Loophole, has received a Uk release. When the third old YMO member, Ryuichi Sakamoto deepened his involvement it was decided to bill those collaborations as Human Audio Sponge.

In the spring of 2007, his fellow YMO members and other artist paid tribute to Haruomi with a 2-disc album titled
Tribute to Haruomi. That same yr, the blithe film
Appleseed Ex Machina
was released featuring a soundtrack performed and supervised by Hosono.

In September 2010 he performed at the De La Fantasia festival and played songs from his upcoming album.

In Feb 2011 it was announced that his new album, entitled
HoSoNoVa, was to exist released on April 20. He also performed a special concert to celebrate its release.

In May 2018, Light in the Attic Records announced a CD and vinyl reissue of v of Hosono’s albums—Hosono House,
Cochin Moon,
Paraiso,
Philharmony
and
omni Sight Seeing—for release in Baronial and September 2018. The former four albums had never been released exterior of Japan previously. Coinciding was the announcement that Hosono would play his first UK concerts as a solo creative person in June; the shows were scheduled as part of Sakamoto’s MODE festival happening throughout England in June and July. The June 23 concert at the Barbican Centre in London featured an appearance by his YMO bandmates, with whom he performed his
Solid State Survivor
composition “Absolute Ego Dance”.

2019 marked Hosono’south 50th ceremony in the music industry. On March half-dozen, he released
Hochono House, a more often than not electronic remake of his solo debut
Hosono House
that reversed the track list. That spring, he performed his first solo shows in the U.S. This run included two sold-out shows at the Gramercy Theatre in New York City and a concert at the Mayan Theater in Los Angeles. The second New York evidence saw an appearance past current NYC resident Akiko Yano, who collaborated with Hosono in Tin can Pan Alley, as a live back up member of YMO, and every bit a solo artist; she sang Hosono’s “Ai Ai Gasa”, which she covered on her 1977 album
Iroha Ni Konpeitou. In LA, Canadian indie rock musician Mac DeMarco—whose song admiration of Hosono has spread to a portion of his ain fanbase—appeared during the show to perform “Beloved Moon” as a duet with Hosono; Light in the Attic had recently released a cover of the song on a 7″ single record, backed with the original version.

In the fall of 2019, an exhibition on Hosono’s career—”Hosono Sightseeing”—was on display in Tokyo Heaven View at the Roppongi Hills Mori Tower; along with other memorabilia, this featured many of the instruments associated with Hosono, such as the Roland TR-808, Eastward-mu Emulator, and Prophet-v. A documentary motion picture,
