Rayons

Masako Nakai is a Japanese composer and pianist. She studied modern and classical music in college where she began to create artful arrangements for piano and strings. The world she weaves is full of fantasy and darkness, with an emotional resonance of beauty and noise. She released her debut mini album After The Noise Is Gone in 2012 and has performed live together with Sylvain Chauveau, James Blackshaw and Ulises Conti. Her first full length album The World Left Behind has released in September of 2015 and will include several collaborations with Japanese vocalist Predawn.

現代音楽家・中井雅子のソロプロジェクト。音大にて現代音楽、クラシック等、様々な作曲を学び、卒業後、音源製作を中心に据えた活動を開始。作曲、ストリングスアレンジ、ピアノ演奏等行う。彼女が紡ぎ織りなす世界は、ファンタジーとダークネスな感情が重なり共鳴し特有の美しさとノイズを生み出している。 これまでにJulia Holter、Sylvain Chauveau、James Blackshaw、Ulises Contiらと共演。デビューミニアルバム『After the noise is gone』を2012年にリリース、2015年9月にPredawnをゲストに迎えたファーストアルバム『The World Left Behind』をリリース。
