This is the new musical project of Hiroshi
Watanabe, who has used many different names over the years.
The first album of this project, TREAD/ TREAD was released
in September 2001 by norm, and is a wonderfully, casually
archetected mixture of high sounds and dry beats.
It established a new kind of musical feeling that had never
been heard before, and even though it was only released
on Hiroshi's own independent label, it still becamae a hit
with house, techno, electronica, and other post-rock fans
and critics, getting attention and acclaim from all over
the musical spectrum. That same year he released TREAD 2.
With the beautiful melodies and un-Japaneseish rythm style
the TREAD addict trend continued and recieved even higher
acclaim then the first album. Popular acclaim of his musical
style and originality are not just limited to Japan. He
has also gotten much attention in praise from Europe as
well. TREAD 3 was just
released this October, 2002.
