  • 【 Andrew Weatherall、Nick Höppnerも絶賛するライブユニット、Opal Sunn 】 今年のRainbow Disco Clubでのパフォーマンスも話題になった、ベルリン発のライブユニットOpal Sunnが再び来日!待望の新作リリース直後のOpal Sunnが数々の著名DJをトリコにしてきた噂のライブセットをVENTにて初披露! 京都出身のAl Kassianと川崎出身のHiroaki OBAがベルリンで出会って2015年に結成されたOpal Sunn。Al KassianはDJ活動を経てParamidaのLove On The RocksやAlex BradleyのUtopia Recordsなどのレーベルから作品をリリース。コンテンポラリーダンスや劇場プロジェクトのサウンドトラックを制作し、彼の多様なサウンドは評判を集め、多彩なアーティストとして認められるようになっていった。 一方のHiroaki OBAは東京でバンドのベーシストとして音楽活動をしていが、ソロアーティストに転向した後に2010年にロンドンで開催されたRed Bull Music Academyに参加し、その後ベルリンに移住。ベルリンにてAlと出会い、セッションを重ねるうちにOpal Sunnを結成した。 複雑かつ高度に組み立てられたランドスケープ、ダンスミュージックへのセンシティブなアプローチですぐさまにシーンの中で自分たちの居場所を確立。リリースしてきた作品はAndrew Weatherall、Laurent Garnier、Nick Höppner、Josh Wink、DJ Sprinklesなどの著名DJにプレイされ、熱烈なサポートを受けてきた。多数のハードウェアを駆使し、即興性の高いセッションを土台に楽曲の分解・再構築を織り交ぜるライヴをぜひ体験してほしい! Opal Sunn, the live unit that’s been highly regarded by Andrew Weatherall and Nick Höppner will perform at Omotesando VENT on October 19th! Only a few months after their much talked about performance at this year's Rainbow Disco Club, live unit from Berlin, Opal Sunn, make their way back to Japan to play at VENT! This is their first time at VENT and it comes on the back of a much awaited new release, so be sure to come check out this duo that has been subject of much intrigue by many DJs in recent months. Opal Sunn is comprised of AI Kassian (originally from Kyoto) and Hiroaki OBA (originally from Kawasaki) who first met in Berlin and formed as a duo back in 2015. AI Kassian was active as a DJ and had release works on Paramida's Love on the Rocks and Alex Bradley's Utopia Records. He's also had his hand in creating soundtracks for contemporary dance projects – the diverse range of sounds that he's created has garnered much acclaim from a wide variety of prominent artists. Hiroaki OBA was initially active as a bassist in a band here in Tokyo, but went solo back in 2010 and then went to London to join Red Bull Music Academy. Afterwards, he moved yet again to Berlin where he met AI and after many sessions together, they formed Opal Sunn. With a delicate and sensitive approach to complex and highly assembled soundscapes layered atop dance music, Opal Sunn were able to quickly penetrate and establish themselves within the music scene. Their releases have gained stamps of approval and heavy play by notable DJs like Andrew Weatherall, Laurent Garnier, Nick Höppner, Josh Wink, and DJ Sprinkles. Opal Sunn incorporate a plethora of hardware into their sets, which leads to highly-improvised sets to build upon, then deconstruct, rebuild, and then weave and blend to produce an intense live performance experience!
