Masayoshi Fujita

Erased Tapes, JP

Masayoshi Fujita is a Japanese vibraphonist composing in an experimental and exploratory way. 

In 2012 he came to the attention of Erased Tapes founder Robert Raths. Not only because the vibraphone is an intriguing instrument, but also the way Masayoshi treats his instrument and draws ethereal and layered sounds, is what truly attracted him to Fujita’s work. Masa first learned how to play the drums, followed by extensive vibraphone training to craft and play his own, mostly jazz and electronic-influenced compositions.

The Berlin-based composer and vibraphonist’s most recent album “Book of Life” sees the vibraphone accompanied by more orchestral elements and voices, creating a wider landscape of sound. A brilliant album released on Erased Tapes.
