Corey Fuller コリー・フラー
Born in the US and raised in Japan, Corey Fuller is a musician and multimedia artist from Tokyo, Japan. Growing up between several different cultures and traveling extensively as a child have made geography and a sense of place major components of Fuller’s music. His work is a slow and gradual music composed of infinitesimal details comprised of processed and delicately treated acoustic instruments, field recordings, and other sound sources. In addition to his work as a solo artist, Fuller finds his collaborations with other artists invaluable. Besides his work with Date as ILLUHA, Fuller has collaborated with Ryuichi Sakamoto, Taylor Deupree, Marcus Fischer, Simon Scott, Stephan Mathieu and others on releases and tours. Following a slew of collaborative releases, 2016 will see the release of Fuller’s long anticipated second solo album, following the critically acclaimed Seas Between.
