      SKETCH SHOW + RYUICHI SAKAMOTO = Human Audio Sponge
      Visual: ryoichi kurokawa

      Haruomi Hosono along with Ryuichi Sakamoto and Yukihiro Takahashi are
      the founding members of Yellow Magic Orchestra(YMO), the legendary
      group that has advocated exotic sounds orientated by computer music.
      Haruomi Hosono has been one of the pioneers of the rock/pop music
      scene in Japan, influencing many artists and garnering considerable
      respect in the electronic music field. Yukihiro Takahashi has been
      known not only as a producer of Japanese rock/pop music but also for
      his activities as a fashion designer as well as a writer. It will be
      the first time in 10 years the three are performing on stage as a
      group, since the '93 YMO reunion when they mobilized an audience of
      100,000 people for their stadium show in Tokyo. It will be the
      world's first performance of Human Audio Sponge, a name reflecting
      the musical direction of the three members, absorbing various music
      and converting ideas in their original way to create a totally new
      sound of music.

      SKETCH SHOW:
      In 2002, Haruomi Hosono asked Yukihiro Takahashi to form SKETCH SHOW
      with him. In August 2002, they fascinated the audience of 10,000
      people with their guest performance at WIRE02, the rave party held by
      Takkyu Ishino. In September 2002 they released their debut
      album "Audio Sponge", which allies Ryuichi Sakamoto and Towa Tei
      collaborated on. In December 2002, their shows in Tokyo and Osaka had
      sold out in one day, in which Keigo Oyamada a.k.a Cornelius made his
      appearances with the band, as well as Ryuichi Sakamoto as a surprise
      guest.

      In Feb 2003, SKETCH SHOW released a mini album called "Tronika",
      featuring remixes by Cornelius. In June they performed at SONAR2003
      in Barcelona and CYBERSONICA03 in London, their first European show
      in 20 years, which both gained much international attention. Last
      September they released their first DVD "WILD SKETCH SHOW live 2002"
      which features their live performance from the previous year,
      followed by their awaited second album "LOOPHOLE" released in
      November, which is due to be released this April in EU/UK. Currently,
      SKETCH SHOW are working on their new remix album.

      Sketch Show + Ryuichi Sakamoto = Human Audio Sponge take the stage at
      the SonĂ¡r 2004Festival in Barcelona on Friday, June 18th.
