"H a r m o n i c" European & Asia Tour 2017 Finished

As Behind the Shadow Drops, I have now successfully finished my first ever solo tour. It consisted of 20 shows over 11 countries. Thank you everyone who came to see me. Wherever I went, there were many warm, welcoming and respectful fans waiting, and the whole month made me feel that I could share my new art successfully with everyone. This truly made me feel happy.

I look at BtSD as something very important that lays inside of me. It’s almost like my other half that I need to co-exist, like a half moon floating in the night sky. But it’s not like a sad or a nostalgic feeling. This tour actually made me remember about the strong DIY energy that I almost forgot.

No matter how old I get, I want to continue playing guitar in many cities throughout the world. This was my dream ever since I picked up the guitar for the first time. I am truly thankful that because of all your support, I could experience my new challenge, my first ever solo tour, from the bottom of my heart. Thank you!

New Solo Project To Start

I will start a new solo project entitled Behind the Shadow Drops.

The basis for the project came from myself wanting to create dark electronic music that would mercilessly echo to the world of darkness, hence I used "night" as a theme for all the songs.

I also wanted to create songs that the beautiful world gets interlaced with nights like magic; like stars and moon dancing together over silent night, sleepless night, beautiful night, night with uncertain future, night that drives you mad, night that makes you want to cry and scream, night that you want to share with someone, and night that you long for something.

During the album composition, I had the opportunity to participate in the wonderful collaborative project that French modern artist Nicolas Buffe was working on with French pâtisserie brand Pierre Hermé. Because of this, I can now present to you my new solo project a lot earlier than I expected.

I'm truly happy that there is now an opportunity for me to be able to share everything as a piece. The album is scheduled for Spring 2017 release, and it's currently under production. I hope Behind the Shadow Drops will speak to as many people's heart as possible in depth.

Love,
Taka

Pierre Hermé x Nicolas Buffe

Behind the Shadow Drops has recently completed an amazing collaborative project, an interactive novel "A Story of the Kingdoms of the Moon and of the Suns" with France's highest class pâtisserie brand Pierre Hermé and French modern artist Nicolas Buffe. Behind the Shadow Drops is a new solo project by the worldly known MONO's frontman, Takaakira 'Taka' Goto.

Taka is the type of artist who is blessed by a musical muse, and constantly hears music on a daily basis in his head. Because of his boundless imagination, Nicolas Buffe's original story "A Story of the Kingdoms of the Moon and of the Suns" gained a new beautiful fantastic worldview and shined further more. It is a true pleasure for Taka to be able to share his art through such wonderful projects as this.

"A Story of the Kingdoms of the Moon and of the Suns" is scheduled to be released chapter by chapter overtime. This grand story of stars is filled with incredible characters and the outcome is beautiful and is a truly original piece. Please enjoy this unique musical world with Behind the Shadow Drops.

The featured music is scheduled to be released in Summer 2017.
