Hijokaidan was formed by Jojo Hiroshige and Naoki Zushi in 1979 in Kyoto, and it is considered the first noise band in Japan and perhaps in the world. They have played full volume improvisational noise for more than 25 years, and have become well known in the world as "King of Noise". Naoki Zushi left the band in 1980. However, in the same year the band got a new member, T-Mikawa. Around 1980 to 1982, Hijokaidan had various people playing in the band, and it got great attention by the media for their destructive performances. In the latter half of the 80's, JUNKO and Fumio Kosakai became regular members. After these additions, Hijokaidan settled with 4 members who are Jojo, T-Mikawa, JUNKO and Kosakai, though they occasionally perform with guests. They played with Nao Shibata, the drummer in 2004. Their popular album "Zouroku No Kibyo" came out in 1982 and has been a longstanding hit. Hijokaidan have done many shows overseas, and have released their works on labels in England, the United States and Spain.
Jeff Carey makes hardcore digital music with a joystick, a gamer keypad,
and an array of strobe lights. Computer based synthesis, noise, and improvisation combined with a no-safety-net aspect of gestural control makes his music totally physical and visceral. Jeff Carey has performed on many tours including Europe and Japan with Matmos. In early 2016, he will perform on a tour with Torche(relapse records) and as part of MultipleTaps USA tour.
Atsuhiro Ito was born in 1965. He launched his career as a visual artist in the late '80s, and in '98 began presenting sound performances at art exhibitions and so on. Ito made use of fluorescent lighting (which is also an element of his art installations) in the creation of an original musical device called the optron. He continues to refine the instrument while approaching sound and music from a contemporary-art-based perspective. In addition to his solo exhibition and performance projects, Ito is active in a number of musical units.
One of these is Optrum, the explosively loud "extreme optical noise core band" consisting of Ito and drummer Yoichiro Shin.
Born 1978 in Okinawa, Japan. Oshiro is a performer and artist. His main medium is sound, but he also combines other elements such as light, electricity and movement of objects. In live performances, he uses self-made tools and instruments that are based on electronic devices, every day materials and junk. His installation work mainly handles sound as a physical and auditory phenomena, and focuses on characteristics such as vibration and interference.
Jojo Hiroshige was born in Kyoto in 1959. He formed the improvisational punk unit, Ultra Bide in 1978, and Hijokaidan in 1979. Radical live noise performances made Hijokaidan well-known in the world as one of the oldest noise bands. He started Alchemy Records in Osaka in 1984, and released titiles of unique bands, Hijokaidan, Sekiri, etc. Considered one of the oldest independent labels, Alchemy Records has been active since its start, digging up such young, interesting artists as Doodles, Oshiri Pen Pens, etc.
