SPANOVA is a Japanese music duo formed by Ken and Shin Tasaki.
The brothers started composing and playing instruments together from the very early age,
absorbing every kinds of music they were exposed; from ’70s an ’80s Pop and Rock as they always enjoyed on the radio;
to Jazz, Soul, Bossa Nova, Hip-Hop, and Modern Music as they get fascinated by the sounds from the unknown world.
Starting their carrier as composers in late ’90s, the duo issued their debut album under their own unit name Spanova on Warner Music Japan in 1997. Since then, the duo has been enthusiastically exploring their music in deep at their private recording studio “Daily Planet Studio”, working on all process by themselves from making demos to the final mixes.While playing an active role in Japanese pop scene as composers and producers, they started with more experimental works in early ’00s,
building materials into a very unique and sensitive sonic texture instead of having a straightforward vocals or an acoustic instrument,and arranging them into an organic piece.
This is their first independent release from Daily Planet Studio.
