Jai Machine:
3人による即興演奏ユニット。2011年、芸術家Majioのライヴ・ペインティングとのコラボレーションという形で3人で演奏したのがJai Machineとしての活動を始めるきっかけとなる。そのライヴ演奏の場では、常に予測できない化学反応が起こる。生命体のように変化する真の意味でユニークな音楽性は、水面に、静かに、しかし確かに広がる波紋のように評判を呼んでいる。

Jai Machine is an improvisational group consisting of Jai, Yukki and Nerve.
Jai plays cello, acoustic bass, hapi drum and many handmade electrical instruments, also MAX (audio and visual processing software) for his variegated musical performances.
Yukki, also featured as a band member of Coupie, plays guitar, hapi drum, melodion, taisho-goto, didgeridoo and more. He has received broad acclaim as a solo guitarist.
Nerve performs vocals in Jai Machine although he is better known as composer and track-maker of the dub-influenced electronica group, antennasia. 
They played together for the first time for Majio's live painting performance in 2011,which provided an opportunity to form the group Jai Machine.
Their live performances are always filled with unpredictable alchemical results. 
Jai Machine is a truly unique entity with an influence that spreads like ripples, inevitably reverberating outward on still water.

Let's Machine!:

The album "Let's Machine!" is a set of improvised musical tales, woven by Jai, Yukki and Nerve. Consider this a live painting performance. Imagine the warm soothing afterglow you feel after bathing in a hot spring echoing through the body, the mood of a beautiful dusk. These instantaneous compositions can never be played in the same way again. This album includes seven "records", each composed spontaneously by Jai, Yukki and Nerve collaboratively. Though these were recorded over a variety of sessions, perhaps you can feel a consistent thread, a pale green breeze with specks of light, a sense of hot water infusing the very music throughout the album.
Enjoy the musings of these three wandering musical nomads.
