We are three indivuals with one thought...To make great music. Boston is our home base and electronica is our music.
Why this name?
We are BAKIMONO because the word is a twist of the Japanese word for Monster..BAKEMONO
Do you play live?
We are mainly a studio project with very few venues to play in and around Boston. We are seeking new management and a booking agent to aid our live interaction with the dance and electronica community around the world.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
The Music industry has a strangle hold on creativity vs commercialism. MP3s and the web are equalizing the game. The industry [riaa etc.] have a fear that someone else will make a dollar that they do not control, and are rushing to put road blocks in place. There are artist that should be heard even if they don't sell 2 million records. The net brings you music the industry
has'nt a clue about, much of it far superior to the nausea on radio and TV.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
If the terms were correct, major promotion and distrubution would be a good thing. There is an occasional good song or performer that slips through the cracks and actually "IS" good.
