kensuke ushiocomposer, JP
Pioneering and acclaimed Japanese composer kensuke ushio comes straight from Tokyo’s underground electronic scene. He is an electronic music producer and composes for internationally popular anime, including Chainsaw Man, A Silent Voice and Devilman Crybaby.
As a child, he learned to play the piano and studied music at university. When he came into contact with electronic music at the age of 20, his artistic career took a turning point. After living in Berlin, the then capital of underground techno, he started his career in 2007 under the nickname ‘agraph’.
His passion for electronic music led him to compose music for anime series and movies. He is now doing so well that some call him the Hans Zimmer of anime. He used his musical skills at legendary anime houses such as MAPPA, Kyoto Studio, Aniplex and Science Saru, among others. With the spectacular growth of anime all over the world, his fan base is growing day by day.
In 2024, kensuke ushio will celebrate his tenth anniversary as a film composer. He is currently working relentlessly on new scores for some of the most hyped anime series of the future. He also puts together a live show in which he combines his love for anime and electronic music.
Cristobal Tapia de Veercomposer, CA
Cristobal studied classical music in Montreal and specialized in percussion techniques. One of his first soundtracks was the score for the BBC series The Crimson Petal and the White: a mix of choral singing, drums and bubbling electronic background noise. This sound became his trademark. He created a database of his own sounds: from whistling to sighs and from rattles to squeaking and hissing animals. The sound of the jungle is reflected in all his soundtracks of recent years.
