ABOUT

goat (jp)

Goat, previously comprised of guitar, bass, drums and saxophone, create music unlike many of the rock bands. In their percussive songs, they mute the melodic instruments to reinforce the beat, and make frequent use of harmonics played outside the twelve-tone. After going through a reshape in early 2017 with a new lineup, they have moved on to build compositions that explore rhythmic aspect even further, centering on intertwining patterns of repetitive rhythms. So far, they have released two albums from the label HEADZ; their debut album “NEW GAMES” in 2013, and second album “Rhythm & Sound” in 2015.

以前はスタンダードなロック編成でありながら、ギター、ベース、そしてサックスさえもミュート音などを使ったパーカッシブな演奏をし、12音階を極力外してハーモニクスを多様する事によりいわゆるバンドサウンドとは異なるサウンドを作り出していた。2017年よりメンバーと楽器を変更し、リズムが交差し共存しながらも続いていく、繰り返しのリズムアプローチへの探求を深めていく作曲へとシフトした。これまでHEADZより1st album”NEW GAME”、2nd album”Rhythm & Sound”をリリース。
