Beppu Punk Cats

Hirai Masaya from Beppu and Jan Kosyk from Dresden started making music together in 2023. One year later, they had their first joint exhibition with cute pictures by Masaya and political animated films by Jan. And it was the birth of the »Beppu Punk Cats«!

Kiyoshima Artist Daily :: 2023-09-15

Today there will be no direct video of me. Instead I’ll recommend you the recordings of the Wohnzimmer concert from last Sunday. Masaya-san and me created some kind of unique japanese-german punk-folk-rock genre, where music connects people, meanings, pictures and languages. Enjoy it!

For more videos look into the Wohnzimmer concert event.

Kiyoshima Artist Daily :: 2023-09-09

This week was full of art. \o/ I tell you timely backwards our todays presentation for Beppu Art Month, my plan to have flyers of our exhibtions and concerts for the Art Fair Beppu, the new song of the CATS project in Italian language from Thursday with Hirai Masaya and a rehearsal of Nihongo-German songs from Wednesday. Much music, some pictures. Have fun!

Kiyoshima Artist Daily :: 2023-08-26

It’s nearly two weeks since the last daily, but I have my reasons. 😃 Today I gonna tell you some useful AI things I’ve done for the Neustadt Art Festival website and you’ll get some music: A spontaneous session at Watanabe Tomishoten and songs I rehearsed with Hirai Masaya. Have fun!

Kiyoshima Artist Daily :: 2023-08-12

Right now there are quite a lot exhibitions and concerts and we try to catch some of them. In addition we installed a small cinema at Kurukuru. And I’m working on Cat And The Sun and the second song is ready for prepublishing it here. Have fun! 🎸🎶🎻🎵

Kiyoshima Artist Daily :: 2023-08-05

Today you’ll see another unboxing of music equipment (How exciting! 😝), the first impression of the first verse of the first song of the project Cat And The Sun and a surprise at the end.

Kiyoshima Artist Daily :: 2023-08-03

It’s been a while since the last daily (and it’s not called “weekly”), but I was busy creating a new Peertube instance for my videos. Now it’s ready and I’m proud to present it to you. 🥳

Nevertheless I did some artsy things like having the Songbirds concert last Saturday and doing some lead sheets for Masaya and me again. Enjoy it!

Kiyoshima Artist Daily :: 2023-07-29

Today you’ll get some impressions of doing “musician things” like texting and rehearsing and a little timelaps building an improvised Piñata. 🪅

Kiyoshima Artist Daily :: 2023-07-26

The first one is directly about the project »Cat And The Sun«. In this project I’ll write seven songs in seven languages and Omani will do seven artworka.

Furthermore you can listen to some snippets from a rehearsal of Hirai Masaya and me earlier this day.

Smörgåsbord

It was in 2023 that I was allowed to go on a world tour with the unique Omani Frei. That was the start of recurring trips to Europe and Japan. You can read about my escapades and experiences in the Smörgåsbord Telegram channel:

February to May 2024

Japan again, this time alone. I deepened my friendship and collaboration with Masaya and we launched the Beppu Punk Cats project, including recordings and a joint final exhibition.

December 2023 and January 2024

I spent December in the beautiful hinterland of Portugal, in Roge near Vale de Cambra. It was very green, very relaxing and very quiet. After a short intermezzo in Dresden between the years, I travelled to Austria and then to PIAFF in Paris together with Omani. There, my animated film Alex won the audience award in the music video category.

March to November 2023

In addition to Osaka, Beppu and Tokyo, Omani and I also travelled to Busan in South Korea and concluded this part of the trip with a visit to Cinanima in Espinho.

You can follow our journey in the specially created blog at smorgasbord.at.

Klavierpunk

Punk without drums and guitar, cross covers, own stuff and with a huge portion of political education. Political what?

Since 2018, I have been on stage alone with piano and voice. With almost forgotten cover songs and a constantly growing repertoire of my own compositions, I tell you what will make the world a better place.
