Born in Tokyo in 1983. In his performances, Kou produces, extends and transforms noise using power equipment (built by self-made electronics player Manabu Suzuki) connected to an analog mixer. He often uses electric guitar as a sound source. Kou is the director of MultipleTap, an event in which many Japanese experimental/improvisational musicians perform in other countries. MultipleTap started at a concert in London in February 2014, and has been held in many places around the world, earning high acclaim. With MultipleTap added to his active performance career of recent years, Kou has been the focus of much attention.
