INTELLIGENTSIA

(vocalist, BRON, and founder and composer MIRAI) combine layers of electronic sound with a soaring vocal range, and aim to re-animate the machine dominated world of electronica with a new body of vocal heavy, attention-grabbing work, designed for live performance. The new tracks will be reminiscent of their best seller Interstella and will explore how the amalgamation of organic vocal and synthetic sounds can be replicated on the stage to electrifying effect. The sound of Intelligentsia draws on the rich history of opera and world music, with Bron singing in Latin, German, English, Japanese and Italian. In their high energy live performances, Mirai utilises his custom-built tactile synthesizers and other cutting edge musical technology to transform their complex compositions into tangible, personal experiences.






Intelligentsia's prime directive is to bring together artists on the vanguard of innovative philosophy positive future. With MIRAI at the helm, they have written soundtracks for Japanese video games and national TV and radio with music pressed to 250,000 + units. Intelligentsia's first gig was in Camden Palace (Koko), London, in 1991, and they have performed at over 50 live events worldwide, including the Interactive Live Show with electro pioneer Susumu Hirasawa (P-Model, Japan), The Future of Music (Denmark), Emotions (Belgium), the Alfa Centauri festival (Netherlands), and at the Yokohama Sports Stadium and Toucho Skyscraper in Japan. Their portfolio features the global project WorldWideKind, new music devices such as the Body-Drum, the Gypsy-Midi exo-skeleton, and digital content for celebrities Uri Geller, Morley Robertson (J-Wave Radio), and Kenso Kato.














MIRAI

Originally from space, MIRAI ("Future Boy") is the founder of the neo-futurist network Intelligentsia. Mirai grew up designing UK video games during the 80's whizz kid era, releasing over 10 titles from age 14 and then moved on to music, video and fashion during the growth of the rave culture, where he began to group together a motley bag of musicians artists, always pushing against the status quo. In 1995 Mirai relocated to Tokyo, writing soundtracks for Japanese video games, club mixes, TV radio. He was also a video game character and co-hosted several electronic music radio shows, wrote for Keyboard magazine and did various TV National radio spots. In Japan, he had a political party named after him, was the first foreigner to perform techno live using a mobile phone, and was voted top Tomb Raider level designer. His portfolio includes work for Arkaos VJ, ASCII, Enterbrain, J-Wave radio, Enix, Players Software, Handy.de & T-Mobile Germany, Yamaha Music corp and Frontline SMS.


BRON

Originally from Adelaide, Australia, Bron was brought up surrounded by classical music and language, laying the foundations for her love of opera, travel and foreign dialects. After trying her hand at a number of different instruments she settled on the human voice as her main vehicle of expression and has been singing since the age of 12. After spending 4 years in Tokyo, Japan, Bron moved to London and thrives on its global culture. As a member of the London Philharmonic Choir and chamber group Voce, Bron has performed in many of London's main concert venues and has toured in Australia, Latvia, Malaysia and Italy, including a concert in the Vatican for the late Pope John Paul II. She recently busked around London as part of Radio 3's Genius of Mozart program. Equally at home in a 120 strong choir, giving solo recitals or free-styling vocals with house music DJs, Bron now joins Intelligentsia to fulfil a long held goal of fusing classical sound with electronica.
