Tao Of Sound releases “Ronin”

TAO_RONIN_02

Recording artists/production duo Tao Of Sound has released their sophomore album, “Ronin,” on Domo Records. Tao Of Sound is comprised of producer/remixer/multi-instrumentalists Taku Hirano and Daniel Pearson.

“RONIN” is the sophomore album from experimental multi-instrumentalists Taku Hirano and Daniel Pearson, otherwise known as the band Tao Of Sound.  Departing from the ambient/lounge vibe of their 2010 debut “METRO“, they went for an edgier sound when composing, arranging, and producing the songs for “RONIN”, and brought in guest instrumentalists and vocalists from around the world.

The album appears after an already impressive career working with a wide array of talents, including some of the biggest names in the music industry, including Dr. Dre, Fleetwood Mac, Stevie Wonder, and Nine Inch Nails.  Internationally, Tao Of Sound has worked with Academy Award-winning film composer A.R. Rahman (“Slumdog Millionaire“), Cirque du Soleil, the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, and Japanese pop icon Utada Hikaru.  Chances are you’ve already been exposed to their music and production work, as Tao Of Sound has contributed to the soundtracks of a number of television productions and feature films.

Having made a name for themselves as remix artists initially (including remixes for Rap superstar Kanye West‘s 2008 release 808s & Heartbreak and for Grammy Award-winning New Age pioneer Kitaro), “RONIN” allows Tao Of Sound to step to the front of the stage with their eclectic, ever-changing style.  From their first album, which combined Zen-like Eastern influences with electronic beats and rock swagger, to RONIN’s edgy pop sounds and epic world-electronica orchestrations, Tao Of Sound has carved out a completely original musical identity.
