Saito Koji – Guitar Loop is My Life
Saito Koji’s “Guitar Loop is My Life”. Saito Koji was born in Fukushima, Japan in 1978. He uses guitars, keyboards, some effects and field recordings to create delicate minimal sound collages and improvisations. He cites three primary influences in his approach to experimental music: Otomo Yoshihide, Derek Bailey, and the sublime visuals of Kaoru Abe. Since 2004 Koji has released works on the Japanese Magic Book Records, Kesh Recordings, SEM label, Stereoscenic, Somehow, Resting Bell, Gears of Sand Recordings. Last heard on Twice Removed with his long form collaboration with Sima Kim (“Light and Gravity”), “Guitar Loop is My Life” is a 6 track 60 minute album with his fondness of loops explored over 10 minutes per track which allows for extension and focus in his loops.
