Holly Lanasolyluna aka Sushi Neko Roll 20


Tokyo Japan   Feb 2014

Artist Bio

Influences:   Lots and lots and lots. All of you too.

Hi, I'm Holly Lanasolyluna. I make mostly one-take, bedroom recordings from looping retro toy synthesizers and improvising lyrics. You can find my stuff on Soundcloud under "Holly Lanasolyluna" or "Sushi Neko Roll." I also work as @santadharma with Tomo, who barely is on here at all, but contributes a lot to our sound and vision. This is going to be my 5th FAWM (participated from Tokyo, Tanzania) Last year I had newly arrived back from living in Colombia, and was semi-homeless, bouncing around between friends' and families' houses in Japan and didn't get as much done as I wanted to. Now I'm living in a 60s house in Koenji (Tokyo) and hoping to find a way to balance a busy university teaching schedule and FAWM.
Some tools in my music box: Yamaha Portasound, Casio SK-1, Casio PT-30, Omnichord, Monotribe, Kaossilator, Wavedrum, Mini Kaoss Pad, Buddha Machines, Casio CZ 101, Casio HT 700, Casio SA 46, Voice Live Touch. New addition is my RC-202.

Update: been so so busy with work but hope to make it to 14 and still manage to return the karma. Thanks for all your support.

    Thank you πŸ˜€ Congrats likewise on your successful FAWM!

  • @zecoop  Mar 2

    When you come to visit the beaches and sand dunes of the West Coast (of Michigan) (when it is warm) there will be a killer Treading Bleu / Santa Dharma show to celebrate. πŸ˜€

  • @adforperu  Mar 2

    It'd be wicked! Any backing band he has here are usually just local musicians, though I guess it must be more difficult to get on the bill in his home country. And thank you for the comments, as always x

  • @adforperu  Feb 27

    Thank you! Got a 90% finished collab and a 15% finished collab... It's gonna happen! Congrats on 14 again..so much gold in there. Especially Omnichordlandia 😍

  • @ihelen Feb 21

    Thank you for your kind words on "Love Your Pet." It sure was fun adding all the different kinds of instruments. I also enjoyed hearing your music, which transports me to another world. I'll be back to listen to more!

  • @moonraccoon  Feb 16

    Oh, yes, women are likewise imperfect. I just didn't want to be a guy who said "But wimminz are bad, too." LOL
    Looking forward to more music πŸ˜€

  • @sarahrogers Feb 15

    The Frenetic Raindrops Handclaps mp3 should now be downloadable on here and on Soundcloud if you want to play with it. No pressure though!

  • @iwilleatyou Feb 10

    That's awesome that you speak Spanish fluently and a little Japanese. I know a little japanese, the important stuff like "Watakushi wa biru o nomi masu" (i'm sure i misspelled that). I think that's the way to say I drink beer. Listened to WItch again.....lovelovelove it.

  • @marvsmooth  Feb 10

    I’m looking forward to hearing the finished piece too πŸ˜€

    I hope I’ve not spoilt it, because it’s beautiful as it was before my bit!

  • @mantra  Feb 9

    Maow ehew miew! Aow. 🐾
    [Thank you for your great comment. Greetings to Morrissey.]

  • @moonraccoon  Feb 9

    Please do, if you do πŸ˜€

  • @brokentooth Feb 9

    Hi, thank you for your kind comment, I'm happy the song made you want to dance! About the synth, I used the music creation tool bosca ceoil with its own created sounds. It's a very simple music tool and the only I use, made by a game developper, mostly to create video games music with its retro vibes. I recommend to try it, it's super fun! http://boscaceoil.net/

  • @moonraccoon  Feb 7

    Hey Holly, thank you for your kind words regarding Background. Yeah, there's something about capturing everything with a single mic on a small machine, in a simple room with stuff in it. I <3 my kitchen.

  • @shortdan  Feb 7

    I'm so sad mine got lost. I can still remember exactly how the demo song goes too! I used to spend hours learning how to say things backwards so I could sample them and then reverse them!

  • @frozenlonesome Feb 7

    Thanks for listening to "Got Lucky". Its the first time anyone said that my music "drowned out the loneliness". I like that thought a lot.

  • @iwilleatyou Feb 6

    Sushi Neko Roll? Isn't that Sushi Cat roll? Nooooo....don't eat the cat!!!!

  • @candle Feb 6

    Thanks for listening to The Dirt Trail. I'm glad you liked the atmosphere.

    See You In The Shadows…

  • @apertome  Feb 5

    Thanks for checking out "I'm not human," I am indeed working on a score for a real movie called "Eating Cars," not an imaginary one. Of course, it hasn't been released yet, but there's some info here:

    I'm very glad to see you back again this year! Looking forward to hearing your new stuff!
