aus is the solo project of Yasuhiko Fukuzono of Tokyo, Japan. Fukuzono started making music for experimental films when he was still a teenager. As aus, he has performed live since 2004, including sets at SonarSound Tokyo, Summer Sonic Festival, De La Fantasia Festival along with many international artists such as Haruomi Hosono (YMO/Sketch Show), Chaterhouse, Daedelus, Ulrich Schnauss, Helios, Xela, AGF, Shugo Tokumaru and collaboration with Sylvain Chauveau (Type), Lindsay Anderson (aka L'altra), Robert Svensson, Craig Tattersall (the remote viewer/the boats) etc.
aus has released 7 albums so far and "Lang" (Preco, 2005) became a huge hit throughout Japan. The "Lang" remix album gathered many popular musicians like Ulrich Schnauss, Manual, Joshua Eustis (Telefon Tel Aviv) and Kettel, Isan, Bracken, Dosh, State River Widening and The Remote Viewer.
Fukuzono has gained attention worldwide through his skillful and delicate sound production, exquisitely combining electronics with sounds from daily life. The music video of the track "With rain" (included in the album "Curveland" from moteer) made by Takafumi Tsuchiya was nominated in the music video category at the world famous visual festival Aurora 2007 (along with Beck, Zero7 and Subtle).
Scottish singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Jo Mango has brought her unique collection of instruments and sounds to collaborations with luminaries such as Vashti Bunyan, David Byrne and Devendra Banhart in venues from the Carnegie Hall in New York to a greenhouse in Glasgow. She has co-written beautiful songs and collaborated on tours and performances with William Tyler (aka Paper Hats), Vetiver, Adem, Teenage Fanclub's Norman Blake, Idlewild’s Roddy Woomble and Richmond Fontaine to name but a few. Jo is also an integral member of the beautiful and legendary Vashti Bunyan's band.
Jo's music combines an unusual mix of talented multi-instrumentalism, haunting childlike vocals, intricate lyricism and a penchant for mashing unique collections of accompanying sounds – from African thumb pianos to electronic autoharps mixed with traditional acoustic guitar and harmonium. Several years ago, Jo launched her solo-performing career and her first single, 'My Lung', was BBC Radio 2's Single of the Week on the Radcliffe and Maconie show. Since then she has been busy touring with Vashti Bunyan, filling her ears with wonderful new sounds and writing beautiful new material, which is due for release this year. Her latest single release and her forthcoming album are produced and recorded by Adem Ilhan and are widely anticipated.
