東京出身。10代の頃から実験映像作品の音楽を手がける。早くから海外で注目を集め、NYのインディーズ・レーベルよりデビュー。レコードショップOTHER MUSICに「現代のエッジと甘美さ、印象的な歌心をこれほど日本的な方法で融合させたアーティストは他にいない」と評される。これまでにヨーロッパを中心に世界35都市でライブを行い、国際的にも注目されるレコード・レーベルFLAUを主宰。The FADER、i-D、DUMMY、The 405、International Tapesなどにミックスを提供。

aus is the solo project of Yasuhiko Fukuzono of Tokyo, Japan. Fukuzono started making music for experimental films when he was still a teenager.
As DJ, aus made the mixtape for i-D Magazine, The FADER, The 405, DUMMY, Fluid Radio and International Tapes.
aus loves to re-discover and re-invent the nature of the sounds around him, over and over again. “It gives birth to new nature by changing the nature” quoted by this quirky composer.
Acquiring his inspirations from all over the places – images that his mind captured from movies, words that he stumbled upon, pieces of music that drop out from TV and radio, nomadic dreams, long lost memories and indescribable inner feelings – Fukuzono writes music that illustrate the detailed movements of life. and quite often, he illustrates, with his subtle music skills, in films too.

PRESS QUOTES

I can’t imagine another artist that blends modern edginess with sweetness and effective song-y-ness in that Japanese way as well. Its kind of an update on the delicate balance reached on Nobukazu Takemura’s very first Child’s View album – OTHER MUSIC

he’s cultivated a world of hushed, understated beauty – The Japan Times

incredibly talented – Memoryhouse (Sub Pop)

aus combines rich in detail,sensibly constructed arrangements with wonderful melodies that evoke feelings of melancholy and optimism at the same time – Ulrich Schnauss 

consistently enthralling artist – Boomkat

…Sehr fein und noch viel leiser – Thaddi HerrmannDe:Bug

A master not only of taste but of exquisite sound productionthe 405

Music for a modern living room – Vital Weekly

a supremely good electronic artist – Smallfish

one of Japans most impressive young artists…A powerful display of minimalist manoeuvres  Tokafi

all just beautiful painted like a delicate watercolour of sunlight playing on a sea scape,with all the grace of spring blossom fall – Musique Machine
