The Observatory and Koichi Shimizu

The Observatory is a band whose music and cultural ethos is to respond and speak back to the contemporary afflictions in Singapore and the global milieu. Since its formation in 2001, the band has expressed itself in multiple ways from folk electronica to prog and avant rock, taking a stylistic sledgehammer to each and every one of its previous releases. In DEMON STATE, The Observatory’s bold partnerships continue, this time with electronic musician Koichi Shimizu , whose achievements are  among being awarded Best Composer at the Dubai International Film Festival in 2009 to providing soundtracks for various movie scripts.
