Tokyo, Japan – June 28, 2023 – Electroacoustic music artist Tia Rungray and ambient musician Yorihisa Taura have joined forces to present a riveting remix of Teppei Kitano’s track “Campagne”. The remix is titled “Bread (Yorihisa Taura . Tia Rungray Remix)”.
The original track, “Campagne”, is the brainchild of track maker Teppei Kitano. Having been active since 2013, Kitano is renowned for his solo project in which he provides vocals and plays all the instrumental parts. He is also recognized as a member of the alternative R&B unit, “City Your City”. The original “Campagne” is a surreal, poignant song sung in Japanese by Teppei, about bread that yearns to be consumed but goes unnoticed and uneaten.
While collaborating on the remix, Tia Rungray shared with Yorihisa Taura that his inspiration for the remix came from the brown sugar steamed bread that is a popular snack in Japan. Though Yorihisa did not expressly acknowledge that he grasped Tia’s vision, his contribution resulted in an audacious, atmospheric track that communicates profoundly.
The remix melds Tia Rungray’s avant-garde classical sensibilities with Yorihisa Taura’s ambient soundscapes to impart a mesmerizing and enthralling depth to Teppei Kitano’s “Campagne”. The collaboration showcases an amalgamation of diverse musical textures, delivering an immersive experience for listeners and amplifying the melancholic and surreal essence of the original song.
“Bread (Yorihisa Taura . Tia Rungray Remix)” is featured on an album which also includes remixes from other exceptional artists such as Kurashige and Soejima Takuma.
You can listen to it on Apple Music and YouTube as well as other major music streaming services.
