uni-marca "uni-marca" 12.20.2006
Uni-marca was formed by Shibata Reki (vocals, voice) and Kawasaki Jun (contrabass) in 2003. Shibata, having followed an acting career, has established a unique theatrical singing style. Kawasaki is a trained musician / composer who has collaborated with dancers, artists, poets and theater groups as well as musicians. This self-titled first album reflects these backgrounds and contains a variety of music dramatically constructed around lyrical texts. Voice performance? Linguistic pop music? How do they describe their own music? Shibata greets their fans, stating "Thank you for listening to our twisted pops. We will continue to pursue straightforward but sometimes absurd, serious but humorous music. Hope you keep on smiling at it!"
