Epitonic proudly presents one of the most successful internationally acclaimed artists from the
Fuzzy Box camp. Color Filter is an electronic pop cooperative from Tokyo headed by Ryuji Tsuneyoshi, a guitarist, composer, and award-winning nuclear physicist. Tsuneyoshi started Color Filter in 1996 after discovering the possibilities of making music with an AKAI sampler and a Macintosh. He also writes music for TV commercials (one of his works can be heard regularly on ESPN during the X-Games). For Tsuneyoshi, the ability to produce music on his own, without the aid of others, held much more promise than his then-current position as a guitarist in a band with influences in U.K. post-punk music. We can only be grateful Tsuneyoshi made this decision; had he not, we would be without the blissful drum and bass-oriented electro pop of Color Filter. You can sample these delectable Japanese electronic pop confections on Sleep in a Synchrotron, featuring the song "Let Me Sleep" and a cover of the Lou Reed classic "Satellite of Love." Also available is "The Stars Above Me," a collaboration with Darla electro-popsters Sweet Trip, which was featured on Darla's Drum & Bliss Vol. 2. Fuzzy Box proudly released Color Filter's second full-length album, I Often Think In Music, in 2000, which features "Blue" and "Fearless." "1/f" is available on CF's most recent release, Landscapes, on Dogprint Records.
