CRYSTAL/Sparrows live at SonarDôme now streaming

The Tokyo wizard brings his avant electronics and pixelated electro visions to the stage. You can listen to CRYSTAL/Sparrows live at Sonar Festival by Red Bull Radio now.

今年6月に開催されたスペインのSónarフェスティバルに出演したCRYSTAL/Sparrowsのライブの模様がRed Bull Radioにて公開。

When he was 13 years old, Ryota Miyake fashioned an instrument out of a cardboard tissue box and a rubber band, and recorded a loop of himself playing his impromptu guitar. Since then, he’s taken his interest in tape recordings into an experimental pop zone. As part of the band Crystal, he crafts music that weaves together influences like the Warp label’s early releases, the soundtrack to Sega’s Out Run and the pop-leaning melodies of The Beatles. (2014’s Dream Incubation project on Sound Pellegrino was co-produced by Hyperdub’s Ikonika.) Recording on his own as Sparrows, Ryota’s music heads in a more intimate direction, as he flirts with folk and ambient vibes to conjure up woozy avant-garde synth pop concoctions.
