A few months ago we did a special week’s worth of content focused around one musician, Jim Guthrie. That was a lot of fun. Let’s do it again, shall we?

No, not a second week for Jim. He’s a cool cat, for sure. But this week we’re going to focus on baiyon.

Born Tomohisa Kuramitsu, baiyon has gone on to become a major influence in electronic music all around the world. He and his art have been presented at events in Japan, South Korea, USA, Canada, Mexico, Ireland, and elsewhere. He is best known, at least among gamers, for his work as audio-visual lead (all music, plus the art styles for each level) in PixelJunk Eden, which we reviewed after its Steam release earlier this year.

One thing baiyon and Guthrie have in common, besides having a week’s worth of content written about them for OSV, is Sword & Sworcery. Guthrie is the composer, and baiyon arranged a track on the Scythian Steppes remix album, which we also reviewed this year.

Throughout this week, we will be taking a close look at all of baiyon’s original works, including various EPs and LPs he’s released, the “in the collaborations” series, and we’ll even discuss his work (among the work of many others) for DARIUSBURST. So stop by each and every day this week to learn more about baiyon and his music!
