stand alone-404 is an experimental keyboard trio from Tokyo,formed by Mitsuhisa Sakaguchi. The trio consists of Mitsuhisa Sakaguchi (key,syn),Toru Kasai (b),Masatsugu Hattori (ds). Each of the three members are involved in various scenes scattered across jazz,techno,electronic music,improvisation and/or hard core.
In their multiple machine and acoustic drum/bass set up,sequences dissolve and occur simultaneously with the catapulting noise of the keys. While their style is derived from jazz,the folie à trois of electronic music wanders seamlessly over minimal,drone,psych and industrial sounds.
Smeared and broken compositions capturing fleeting beauty is one way to describe this unit.
