Based in Tokyo, FJORDNE is the solo project of Fujimoto Shunichiro (b.1980). Focused on two concepts, “sound texture” and “twisted time”, he utilises an array of acoustic instruments and transforms his sounds into a new time span using the laptop computer.

Within a year in 2008, FJORDNE released 3 albums  ”UNMOVING” (u-cover, Belgium), “The Last 3 Days of Time” (Dynamophone Records, USA) and “Stories apart from the world” (Ryoondo Tea, Japan).

This was followed by another EP “light passes on through a layer” (SEM label, France) before his fourth album “The Setting Sun” (KITCHEN. LABEL) released in August 2009. “The Setting Sun” has received critical acclaim and was selected by The Silent Ballet and Textura in their top albums of 2009 list, with the reviewers touting it as “a touchstone in modern ambient music”.

His 5th album “Charles Rendition” was released by KITCHEN. LABEL in July 2011, a showcase of his newfound ambient jazz approach that has been received with high appraisal from press around the world.
