【SHIN KOKAWA】

drummer 粉川 心によるソロプロジェクト。
ドラムを通じた自己表現を探求する中で、アニミズムや禅の持つ美的観念に共鳴し、木と、皮と、鉱物と、身体。ミニマムなスタイルでフリージャズ、スピリチュアルジャズ、民族音楽、環境音楽、ハードコアなどを飲み込み、生楽器の持つ原始的な強く美しいサウンドに、瞬間の感性を落とし込む即興独奏。

Solo project of ex.jizue's drummer SHIN KOKAWA.
Interference of the others is eliminated. Sought only the pure self-expression. 
The drummer reached the primitive overtones of live instrument that go the age of technology, and expression that isn’t restricted by ensemble.
There are only wood, skin, metal and the body of the drummer.
The emotion of the moment is put into the improvisation.
A solo play of the percussion that reflects oneself in the moment.

 

2015年よりソロ活動をスタート。活動開始から間もなく現在進行形ロンドンクラブジャズ界のレジェンド4HERO、DEGOの京都公演をサポート。 
さらにMASSIVE ATTACKと並び英ブリストルミュージックを牽引し続けるROBSMITHのJAPANツアーにも参加。
日本勢にはTHA BLUE HERBからDJ DYE、zettaimuからKURANAKA a.k.a.1945らと共に東京、京都公演を盛り上げた。
その後もバレエダンサー、ベリーダンサー、書家、ライブペインター、空間アーティスト、ヨガ講師など様々なアーティストとコラボしながら新しい表現を求め活動している。

2020年にはドラムソロで東南アジアツアーを行い、帰国後に石若駿、松下マサナオらと1stソロアルバム『ANIMA』を制作、リリース。

Studied with various drummers in various styles, such as Marty Bracey (Monta & Brothers),
Katsuhito Saruta (Yamaha), who has deep knowledge of human body mechanics,
Tetsuji Horio (an music school), who learned Kojujutsu's bodily arts and body operation,

and studied the basics of Moeller technique from Koichi Yamakita and Tomoya Deguchi.



From learning with these mentors, Shin was inspired to master Aikido to learn how to use the body more deeply, also obtained a Thai massage qualification to understand the body structure of Oriental medicine, from the view point body and drums are one piece.

Subsequently, Shin was fascinated by instinctive drums and studied under jazz writer Yuhiro Shimizu living in NY.
He visited to the United States alone for music training, and participated in workshops by Dom Famularo and Cindy Blackman in the United States and Canada as well. He gained drumming experience in jam sessions on site.

Solo project by a drummer, Shin Kokawa. (Ex member of jizue)


His musicality and artistry are inspired by Japanese Zen, whose value is simplified beauties of nature, while he is exploring new expressions of drums. At the same time, he is always fascinated to free jazz, spiritual jazz, folk music, environmental music, hardcore etc, as a musician. He finally attains to a new vision to create beautiful music, which has not existed yet, by a minimal material of drum, which is wood, bark, metal, and his body, while he succeeded to install and mix the value of beauties of nature and his favorite music with his natural talent. His emotion that reflects the moment of his performance is drawn into an improvisation with primitive and beautiful sound of the acoustic instruments.

He started solo activities in 2015. Shortly after the activities started, he supported 4HERO and DEGO performance in Kyoto who are current legends in London club jazz.
He also participated in ROBSMITH's JAPAN tour, which continues to lead British music alongside MASSIVE ATTACK.
With Japanese players, he joined Tokyo and Kyoto performances along with DJ DYE from THA BLUE HERB and zettaimu from KURANAKA a.k.a.1945 
Subsequently, he is exploring new expression and play styles collaborating with various artists, such as ballet dancers, belly dancers, calligraphers, live painters, space artists, and yoga teachers.
In 2020, he embarked on a Southeast Asian solo tour.
