Artist Biographies:

"Yoshio Machida (町田 良夫 Yoshio Machida?, born 1967 in Japan) is an experimental musician, a steelpanist, composer, and visual artist.

A member of ASCAP, Machida studied minimal art, music and film at the Tama Art University under Kuniharu Akiyama, Yoshiaki Touno, Sakumi Hagiwara and Kishio Suga. In the 1990s, Machida worked for an international cooperation in Asia and Africa.

Machida's first album Hypernatural (1999) had been featured with Brian Eno and Oval (band) on David Toop's article about Generative music. In 2001, Machida started to play improvised music by Steelpan with computer program Max/MSP. Machida has been invited to perform in ISEA2004, Sónar Tokyo, MaerzMusik and other venues. In 2004, Machida founded an experimental music label Amorfon. In 2007, Machida formed an electric Dub band miimo with tatsu and Norihide Saji. Machida also organized "Japan-Macedonia exchange art exhibition" and some workshops for children.

As a visual artist, Machida has produced Photobatik like Photogram technique using photographic paper. Photograms are produced by partial exposure and development of the entire photosensitive surface. Photobatik is "whole exposure and partial development." Machida has expanded his technique to overexposure of the photographic paper followed by only fixing the image, resulting in a pink image."

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Mutatation of "POP" post-rock by a Japanese active steelpanist / sound artist, "Yoshio Machida" & a post-folk band, "Cinc". Sophisticated lyrics & sound burst! So far they played together, for example, at famous music festival in Belgarade "Ring Ring" ( Otomo Yoshihide, Metamkine, Djivan Gasparyan, etc. played there in the past.) Then they recorded their pieces at last in spring, 2006.

Machida has visited to Serbia some times when he had his tours in Europe (incl. ISEA2004, MAERZ Musik, etc ). Cinc is an alternative band which leads Serbian alternative scene. 2 albums are already released from Amorfon, praised by Simon Raymonde (Cocteau Twins) as "Beguiling". Member is Djordje Ilic (guitar, vocal), Luka stanisavljevic (bass, vocal) Irena Vanic (vocal), Srdjan Stojanovic (violin). Beautiful melody by Steel Pan (tr1), singing comical mind of a girl waiting (tr2), a hero is active in moon night (tr8), Balkan's 11 time with vocorder (tr9), reminiscent of the 80s cool New Wave (tr10), Grandma became grandpa?(tr11)... Acoustic, 8bit, steel pan, kitschy, electronics to orchestral & grunge... Cross over genre from post-rock to electronica like : Hanne Hukkelberg, Peter, Bjorn and John, Yo La Tengo, Leaf, Morr Music... "-amorfon
