ATAK was established by Keiichiro Shibuya in 2002 
as a collective including creators from various 
fields, such as music, design and fashion. As a 
music label ATAK releases Japanese and 
international cutting edge electro-acoustic 
works. The work of ATAK is deeply influenced by 
the music of Pan sonic and Yasunao Tone.

Shibuya released his first solo album entitled 
"ATAK000 keiichiro shibuya" in 2004. With an 
extremely dense and rich sound, focusing on tone 
and rhythm the album was a milestone for 
Shibuya's musical development.

Pan sonic was formed in 1992 in Turku, Finland by 
Mika Vainio (1963) and Ilpo Väisänen (1963). Pan 
sonic released more than ten albums, a slew of 
EPs and a DVD, and have collaborated with legends 
such as Alan Vega, Barry Adamson and David 
Cunningham. The group has become one of the best 
known Finnish electronic music groups, renown for 
their harshly minimalist, high volume live 
performances. Pan sonic's concert with ATAK is 
one of few appearances in 2009.

Yasunao Tone was born in Tokyo in 1935 and 
resides in New York since 1972. He is co-founder 
of Group Ongaku, an original member of the 
Japanese Fluxus movement, and a legend in 
electronic music. Tone will perform his piece 
Paramedia Mix 08 which is an instance of his long 
term musical project dedicated to the exploratory 
use of manipulated CDs. Since the 80ies Tone 
develops his unique musical aesthetic, based on 
scratched CDs and their use as a medium for live 

evala is a sound artist based in Tokyo and a 
regular member of ATAK. In 2004 he founded the 
independent label "port". His first album 
"initial" with its strong and sensitive sounds 
had a great impact on the electronic music scene 
in Japan. evala's signature style is an 
uncompromisingly artificial editing process of 
field recorded material. For ATAK NIGHT 4 he will 
also program the visuals for Shibuya's live set.

ATAK NIGHT 4 is a project of ATAK, Les Jardins des Pilotes,
and Club Transmediale.
Supported by the Japan Foundation.
