As with the best of Royksopp, Boards of Canadaand early Aphex Twin, Kodomo's
debut album Still Life is melodic, inherently listenable and propulsive, yet still complex
enough to just sit back and savor. Kodomo has created a compelling form of impres-
sionist electro that emphasizes warm sounds, melodic development and pulsing beats.
A three-time Emmy nominee, he lives and works in New York City as a full-time com-
poser, and is known for his music featured in television, independent film and video
games. Kodomo has also done remixes for the artists Freezepop, Omar Faruk,
Dead Radar, Xandy Barry, and Sara Fimm, and he has also composed music for sev-
eral a films. His wide range of musical influences includes everything from Brian Eno
and Erik Satie to DJ Shadow, Kraftwerk, J.S. Bach and Cabaret Voltaire.
