Akira is a Japanese composer, pianist and record label manager with a long and varied career. His first record It's On Everything was released while still at school in 2007. Since then he's released numerous albums, composed music for film and stage and written commercial music for brands including Nikon and IKEA. His label Schole, run with visual artist Shin Kikuchi, features a roster of artists including Quentin Sirjaq, Tim Linghaus and Paniyolo. He first appeared in Upright Vol. IV with his lovely 2017 piece Resonance from the album In The Dark Woods.
This piece, Romance, moves between a terse opening section to a more peaceful central section that quickly returns to the edgier opening, and is taken from an EP of the same name that came out on Friday 13th September 2019 on Schole Records and 1631 Recordings.
