Takumi Moriya

I first met Mr. Kondo about 7 years ago, when I was just starting my career in Tokyo, and a DJ I met at an event introduced me to him. Since then, he has been very kind to me by letting me participate in his live performances and recordings.
I went to Jamaica for a recording session before the world was swallowed by the COVID-19, but just as I was thinking of coming back to Japan and visiting Mr. Kondo again after I had settled down to create my work, he left. I’m sure he’s busy with “Blowing Heaven” after his “Blowing Earth” tour around the world, but on this day, he’s coming back to our world. I would like to feel the sound of Mr. Kondo’s electric trumpet with my whole body.

Started his career in the late 90’s mainly in the Kansai area. Since 2002, he has produced the reggae singer KARUKAYAMAKOTO (LD&K) and participated in the authentic ska band.He has also participated in DETERMINATIONS. He has also performed with Japanese free jazz pioneers Yosuke Yamashita (pf) and Akira Sakata (sax).
In recent years, he has expanded his activities to Tokyo, participating as a bandleader in the band of world-famous trumpeter Toshinori Kondo and RM jazz legacy produced by Jazz DJ Hiroko Otsuka. They have performed at festivals such as Fuji Rock Festival’15, Blue Note Jazz Festival in Japan’16, and Ark Hills Jazz Festival’15/16/17. He has also been featured on the power play of BBC radio.
As a solo artist, he released the album “Espoir” in 2016 and “FAMILY” in 2017. He has performed with musicians active in various fields such as Masayasu Tsuboguchi(pf), Yusuke Hirato(pf), Kan Sano(pf), Shota Watanabe(pf), Mari Chan(pf), Takashi Kashikura(dr), mabanua(dr), Nobuaki Fujii(dr), Shun Ishiwaka(dr), Kazuya Oi(dr).
In 2017, he launched a roots reggae band, GUAVA DUB, in his hometown of Osaka, and in the fall of 2018, he performed a bass solo at an event produced by Academy Award-winning screenwriter Kundo Koyama at Murin’an in Nanzenji, Kyoto. He is also the band leader of the Senegalese and Japanese band SALIOU Japan Project, and performed at Tokyo Jazz X 2019 organized by fox capture plan and mabanua.
He loves reggae and ska, and in the fall of 2019, he will travel to Jamaica to visit the Tuff Gong Recording Studio, founded by Bob Marley. In the fall of 2019, he will travel to Jamaica to visit the Tuff Gong Recording Studio, founded by Bob Marley, where he recorded with guitarists Ernest Ranglin and Earl”Chinna” Smith, who represent the history of Jamaican music.

<User’s Guide for MUSER>

Electric Trumpeter Toshinori Kondo has passed away last October 2020. As a musician, Toshinori experimented with his limitation of expression with music throughout his career. 「Kondo Ontai Kenkyujyo」(Kondo Sound Body Laboratory) was his Music studio and supported his experiments with music. Now with Toshinori Kondo’s passing away, 『実験JIKKEN』(Experiment) project has been launched. This project aims to maintain Toshinori’s 「Kondo Ontai Kenkyujyo」 and his legacy. As a memorable first event, we will be inviting Tatsuya Nakamura (Drummer) and Kentaro Nakao (Bassist) for a jam session with Toshinori’s solo source.

What is 『実験JIKKEN』?』>
We’ve decided to start the experiment.
At 「Kondo Ontai Kenkyujo」, Toshinori researched music for more than 30 years.
By inviting special guests every time, we want to challenge something no one has done before.
And we’ll be live streaming the process for the world to see.
We want to make a pleasant future between death and alive.

Experiment NO.1 『共振(Resonance)』
For our memorable first experiment inviting Drummer Tatsuya Nakamura (LOSALIOS, MUGAMICHIL) and Bassist Kentaro Nakao(Crypt City, Number Girl)to the lab. Tatsuya and Kentaro leading musicians in Japan for creating oscillation with numerous musicians.
They will be performing a jam session with Toshinori’s trumpet solo sources. It will be the first attempt for Toshinori and the two musicians.
Toshinori and Tatsuya initially scheduled a jam session in Osaka; however, Toshinori passed away a day before the planned date.
Accepting our overdue offer, Tatsuya was willing to invite Kentaro, who never performed with Toshinori. It is a great pleasure to conduct our first experiment with Tatsuya and Kentaro.
This will be no remix nor cover—a one-time-only experiment.

<Live Streaming Partner MUSER (Live Stream Powered by MUSER)
The number of live streams has been increasing these days, but the energy and delight aren’t there. How can we provide the same experience as real live concerts to our fans and musicians? This is also another type of experiment.
MUSER provides a music specialized online live streaming platform with the mission “Power to Music. Power to Artists and Fans”.
Technology is not the critical element for this experiment. A concert cannot be done by just artists themselves. MUSER does not fear to evolve through trial and error to become the partner of music.

About 『Kondo Ontai Kenkyujo (Kondo Sound Body Laboratory) 』
Kondo Ontai Kenkyujo was established in the 1980s by Toshinori as a studio for his band IMA band. Even after starting his solo activity, Toshinori did not stop recording, creating music, and researching the core element of music at this place. He slept in one of the rooms there, facing music day and night. He was even once proud of himself for creating seven songs in a day.
Toshinori was searching for 21st-century music. Focusing on the earth, he searched for a music that resonates with nature, not humans. One answer he had in his mind was tones.
“This tone doesn’t resonate with nature.”
Toshinori’s played the electrical trumpet with a focus was on tones. Not rhythm or music codes.
What’s the best vinyl for the mic? He even tried using the plastic bag from a convenience store.
This place is not just a studio. It is a laboratory for people to think and pursue their perfect sound and music.
