The band was formed by Shin in 2000 with the idea of taking the soul of Japanese traditional music and combining with a Western, modern sound. Each member plays an integral part in the creation of their unique sound. In order to find the sound that they were ultimately looking for, many members came and went and finally settled with their current line up. The mixture of Japanese and Western style that Shin had originally created is enhanced by the trying sound of the Japanese traditional instruments. It's now closer to their idea of the perfect mixture of lightness/darkness & silence/sound.
