Chihei Hatakeyama is a sound artist, an organizer and mastering engineer who was born in 1978, and lives in Tokyo. He has performed for years under his given name, and also as one half of the electroacoustic duo Opitope, along with Tomoyoshi Date. Hatakeyama got involved in playing music through strumming an electric guitar in a few rock-oriented bands in his teenage years. Subsequently, a laptop computer superseded his bands as his main platform. Hatakeyama polychromes memory-evoking soundscapes with various recorded materials of acoustic instruments such as guitars, vibraphones, and pianos, mostly played by hand and processed time and time again via laptop. His first album Minima Moralia was commissioned for release by the Chicago-based label kranky in early 2006. Since then, his many albums were released by Room 40, Under The Spire, Hibernate Records, Magic Book Records, Home Nomal, OwnRecords, Spekk, Dronarivm, Constellation Tatsu, Glacial Movements Records and his own label, White Paddy Mountain. In 2013, Hatakeyama founded the record label White Paddy Montain, which since then has released over 40 recordings by some of the most accomplished musicians and modern ambient musicians, Shoegazer and folk musicians in Japan. In recent years, Hatakeyama continues to evolve his sound by using analog synthesizers, modular synthesizers and compact guitar effectors. Hatakeyama approaches some modular synthesizer and electric guitar drone projects with an expectation of new directions. Courtesy of bandcamp « hide
