Beautiful melody and picturesque sound Keiko Hori, a sound artisan

Keiko Hori is an expert of beautiful melodies and picturesque sound making. While the music itself has an appeal that inspires the imagination, it cannot be described in words how moving a live performance is. The sound that is deeply heart-gripping, the power of the performance coupled with the pure personality of the artist often moves the audience to tears.

Since in her creative process she takes inspiration from everyday things that would be overlooked in everyday life, many of her fans claim to "notice" things through her sound. Her sound is reviewed as "music that should exist, but doesn't."

She is a sound artisan who does all of the music production herself. She has experience not only with music, but also with photography and video, her artistic activities are comprehensive. Recently she has moved her residence to Tenkawa, Nara, and entered a new stage for her creative activity.

Keiko Hori's First Album "TENKAWA"

Keiko Hori is a musician/filmmaker who is active mainly in the Kansai region. Her debut album "TENKAWA" has become a hot topic with reviews like "beautiful melody and picturesque sound that is centered around the piano", "a landscape that spreads out in front of each listener". The album contains 10 songs. The composition, instruments, producing for all the songs and the cover art for the album has all been created alone by the artist herself, a completely independent artist. A sound collage that weaves together the piano and the backtrack that pierces the current music scene. Music that surpasses genres, an album with a rich sound that stimulates the imagination. Also remixed by mabanua.
