Introducing

The composers

Photographers duo Scandebergs shot the imaginary interview of The Composers, a fantasy electro-pop band. The 70s vibe of the decor and outfits celebrate Kenzo Takada’s legendary muses, at the heart of this Spring/Summer’s collection: model Sayoko Yamaguchi and Ryuichi Sakamoto — leader of the band Yellow Magic Orchestra.

The Composers, a new five-piece taking Tokyo by storm.

Ingenious, pop-forward blend of modern production techniques and ancient musical sensibilities.

The Composers, exclusive interview

Catching up with The Pulse, the band’s drummer and singer.

As artists, what draws you to the work of Ryuichi Sakamoto and Sakoyo Yamaguchi?

The very free way they both combined images and signs. Not just in the realm of music, either. They drew from all aspects of culture, past and present— film, dance, theater, pop, everything. Even more than that, they both are inspirations in their original approaches to gender.

What in particular appeals to you about their approach to gender?

It’s not only an inversion, but is really free and personal mixing. Masculinity, femininity, glamour, elegance, play— these aspects could be for anyone, and your personal style is how it all lives together. We are interested in using as many colors as possible.

How do you think this reflects in the music that you make?

With Ruyichi- san especially, the personal image and the art are not separate. How you look colors the way people receive your music. Because we are versatile as a band, our look reflects that. We come from the future, where everything is mixed in ways you can’t yet imagine.
