MUNEOMI SENJU - (Japan)

Cutting his teeth playing with Boredoms a.k.a. V∞redoms and PARA in Kansai, Muneomi Senju (drums, electronics) has since moved to Tokyo to continue exploring the possibilities of his instrument. As a solo player, Senju incorporates electronic triggers when playing, running them to sounds and sequences for a complex array of rhythm and texture. With a primal sensibility to his playing, the result is not unlike the conjoined bastard quadruplets of “tribal-fusion-techno-jazz” he's used to describe his music in the past.
As a collaborator, the list is long: Masami Akita (aka Merzbow), Arto Lindsay, UA, DJ Baku, Yukihiro Takahashi and Harry Hosono (YMO), Keigo Oyamada (aka Cornelius) and Otomo Yoshihide are just some of the artists he's been working with. He also continues to play drums in PARA (led by ex-Boredoms member Seiichi Yamamoto), Urichipangoon, Date Course Pentagon Royal Garden and Combopiano, as well as joining frequent one-off duo projects with Tatsuhisa Yamamoto and Berlin-based Iku Sakan.
