Color Filter is an electronic pop cooperative from Tokyo headed by Ryuji Tsuneyoshi, a guitarist, composer, and award-winning nuclear physicist.
Tsuneyoshi started Color Filter in 1996 after discovering the possibilities of making music with an AKAI sampler and a Macintosh. He also writes music for TV commercials (one of his works can be heard regularly on ESPN during the X-Games).
For Tsuneyoshi, the ability to produce music on his own, without the aid of others, held much more promise than his then-current position as a guitarist in a band with influences in U.K. post-punk music.
Indeed, the blissful drum and bass-oriented electro pop of their new album 'Silent Way' features 11 new tracks and vocals from Yuki Nishimura, her voice has drawn comparisons to Saint Etienne, Cocteau Twins, Stereolab and Broadcast.
