Shugorei

Formed in 2019, the duo is a profoundly adventurous expedition through the realms of live percussion and electronics, performed by Nozomi Omote and Thomas Green.

The sonic collision of diverse influences, broadly IDM and classical music, results in a unique and distinctly vivacious experience. Vibraphone, digital samples, analogue synthesizer, drums, jumbles and bricolage come together in painstakingly composed works as well as free-form improvised pieces.

Shugorei (meaning Guardian Spirit) explores an interplay between Noz's Japanese background and Western musicianship with Tom's far-reaching madcappery adding an element of excitement and surprise.
