Yuri Miyauchi

Yuri Miyauchi is a highly acclaimed music producer in Japan. He is well known for his guitar-based music which is both electronic, ambient and pop in nature. He tours Japan extensively and does a lot of work for film, television, and advertising. He releases on the esteemed Rallye label. We were first introduced as he co-ran flau years ago with Yasuhiko Fukuzono, and found ourselves at the same shows, playing a couple together actually organised by another mutual friend: Shintaro Aoki who runs the lovely Mizukage label. 

Yuri very kindly made a re-working for Ian Hawgood's 'Slow Films In Low Llight' back in 2010.

He'll be playing Fuji Rock this year as well so please check him out if you are going!

Here's a lovely music video for 'To Be On This' by Yuri Miyauchi featuring Julia Guther:

Here's a little more about Yuri's work (in Japanese):
