Click + Listen #60 : TAKAGI MASAKATSU


Video about him in 2007

Mr. Masakatsu, born in 1979, is a Japanese musician and a visual artist who lives now in Hyogo in Japan. It seems that he mostly plays piano and composes songs for collaborations, commisioned works, films, commercials and more (the full list here x). He also released several albums since 2001 (discography).

I firstly discovered him online with his beautiful and colorful video for his song "Girls" (album "Private/Public") (see also an excerpt of his live version featuring Bobby Womack). If you like that kind of artistic videos, you can easily find and watch his other video works online and here below :

Beside discovering all his albums, you can also watch videos of his live piano performances, live piano solo concerts and his piano lessons on playlists.
What I like most about him is his beautiful piano songs ! A few of my favorites below :
