Profile of the performer Pfeuti:
First forming in 1997, Pfeuti was an accidental post jazz/post rock project from Tokyo, Japan. Influences of the four core members ranged from free jazz, dub, noise and electronica to punk, exotica and movie soundtracks.
Pfeuti collaborated on a number of films, providing the electronica-flavoured soundtrack for sur|FACE (2001), an intimate documentary investigating the lives of 14 of Japan's major architects, as well as music for the Canadian independant movie Free (2002).
In addition to the sur|FACE soundtrack, the group released several albums of music that capture their live sound as a quartet. Pigeon Post (released by Pickin' Mushroom' in Japan and Oh!Tonito in North America) and Last Terminus (released on the soundispatch imprint in 2006) were recorded live in studios in and around the Tokyo area. Subsequent 12" remixes of Pigeon Post (released on Pickin' Mushroom) were provided by Takayuki Shiraishi and Thomas Fehlmann from the Orb.
