ZVIZMO (Atsuhiro Ito x TENTENKO)

Music duo. Atsuhiro Ito, plays the fluorescent light musical instrument OPTRON, and Tentenko, who performs in both underground and major music scenes. Tentenko’s easy listening but heavy electro beat, and Ito’s avant-electropop/strange technoise produced by his freaky but catchy OPTRON are filled with “odd but somehow friendly” sounds.
