The moment you hear Kishi Bashi for the first time, you just get it. It's a euphoric experience, one that grasps you by the heart and leads you to the happiest place in your mind. K. Ishibashi is the single individual behind this sweeping musical journey which takes place within the ten song debut album, 151a. A journey uncontrollable in its emotional grasp on the listener, like first love, is pure and utter joy.
And that is something we attempted to capture during our time with Ishibashi. Our collaboration with the gifted artist, featuring visual elements projected brightly on him as he records live in a Brooklyn practice space, is something that we think brings a new, unique perspective to the songs.
