Born in 1986 and currently 21 years old, Jemapur was brought up in a family enthusiastic about classical music. He started playing the piano when he was a child, and by elementary school he was composing music in his own unique style. In the year 2000, he began composing music digitally. In 2002 he launched his own music label, and garnered attention by remixing overseas artists such as Nacht Plack and Machine Drum. He also wrote music for the Japanese MC unit 降神 (Origami) and Shibito, acclaimed for their originality and expression. His work in 2004-2005 drew the interest of track maker and producer Nujabes, and Jemapur’s first full album, “Dok Springs” was released on Nujabes’s label “Hydeout Productions” in 2006. The album appeals to a wide range of listeners and has sold over 7000 copies to date.

Jemapur’s highly evolved compositional skills steeped in the classic tradition are perfectly hybridized with his acute sensitivities as a new generation beat maker baptized in electronic music. The tracks are deceptively simple constructions which, upon deeper listening, reveal themselves to be beautifully detailed and complex. His ultimate theme is exploring how his personal hero, J.S. Bach, would compose electronic music in these modern times. Recently, he is broadening his activities, and has joined with Audio Active guitarist Cutsigh to form experimental unit “DELMAK”.

The artist Jemapur has evolved dramatically since his former and first album 2 years ago. Evacuation is his second album. The 14 tracks have been carefully selected from a massive repertoire of compositions created between 2006 – 2008. DVD includes 4 fresh music video as well.

The music videos:

01. Beneath The Water Surface (Director : Kosai Sekine)
A collaboration with W+K Tokyo Lab and Kosai Sekine, the director Jemapur worked with on “Maledict Car”. The world beneath the water surface is executed gorgeously with a super high speed camera. Audio track will only be available online.

02. Aanaatt (Director : Max Hattler)
A stop-motion animation film from the up and coming German creator Max Hattler. The high-quality animation is fixed-film, shot through a fixed point camera, bringing a fresh new dimension to Jemapur’s musical world.

03. Maledict Car (Director : Kosai Sekine) 
Included in Tokyo Ten (W+K Tokyo Lab) released in July 2008. The nighttime Tokyo images captured on HD camera for this video are a perfect depiction of what foreigners would imagine the futuristic cyber-city of “Tokyo” to look like. The piece was recently featured in Kanye West’s blog, and is currently attracting a lot of attention especially overseas.

04. Clarte (Director : Genki Ito)
The latest film by W+K Tokyo Lab creator, Genki Ito. The concept is nuclear fusion in the micro world, matching poetic animation to a heavy-hitting track.

Jemapur (ジェマパー)

1986年生まれ。現在21才。熱烈なクラシックミュージック・ファンの家庭に生まれ育つ。幼少の頃からピアノを始め、小学校の頃には独自の方法で作曲をはじめる。2000年頃より、コンピュータを用いた音楽制作を開始。2002年頃には、自身のレーベルを立ち上げる一方、Nacht Plank、Machine Drumといった海外アーティストの作品のリミックスや、独創的な表現で話題のMCユニット降神(オリガミ)、志人への楽曲提供などで徐々に注目を集めるようになる。 その後、2004年から2005年の間に制作されたトラックの一部が、Nujabes(ヌジャベス)の耳に止まり、同アーティスト主宰のレーベル「Hydeout Productions」より、フルアルバム「Dok Springs」が2006年にリリースされる。 幅広いリスナー層に支持され、現在までに7000枚を超えるセールスを記録。 



The music videos:

01. Beneath The Water Surface (Director : Kosai Sekine)
前作「Maledict Car」でも、タッグを組んだディレクター関根光才と、W+K Tokyo Labのコラボレーションによる新作映像。タイトルの通り、水面下における世界観が、スーパーハイスピードカメラによる映像で見事に表現されている。楽曲は、デジタルのみのリリース。

02. Aanaatt (Director : Max Hattler)
気鋭のドイツ人クリエイター、Max Hattler (マックス・ハトラー)によるストップモーション・アニメーション。定点カメラによる固定映像の中で次々と繰り広げられるアニメーションは、そのクォリティもさることながら、Jemapurの音の世界を、より高いレベルに引き上げることに見事に成功している。

03. Maledict Car (Director : Kosai Sekine) 
2008年7月にリリースされたTokyo.点(W+K Tokyo Lab)にも収録。HDカメラで撮影された夜の東京は、外国人が思い浮かべるサイバーシティ “Tokyo”のイメージ。最近、カニエ・ウェストのブログでもピックアップされ、現在、特に海外において大きな話題を呼んでいるミュージック・ヴィデオ。

04. Clarte (Director : Genki Ito)
W+K Tokyo Labのクリエイター伊東玄己による新作映像。ミクロの世界で起こる核融合をコンセプトに、重厚感のあるトラックに対し、詩的な世界観のアニメーションを合わせた作品。
