ironomi (also known as いろのみ in Japan) is an ambient classical duo consisting of pianist Junya Yanagidaira and Yu Isobe on guitar & laptop. iro-no-mi literally means “fruit of color”, a meaning unique in Japanese to describe the quintessential Japanese aesthetic centered on the four seasons.
With a background of study in classical music and sound art, they create their own brand of impressionist music that intersects this Japanese sense with modern electro-acoustic approaches. Since 2007, ironomi has released 7 albums, “ironomi”, “RECODE”, “北の果ての物語’, ”ubusuna” and “ZONE”. These albums have appeared under Japanese labels Ryoondo Tea and STARNET MUZIK.
