Formed by Tatsuya Yoshida (drums) and Ono Ryoko (alto Sax/effects) to perform RUINS’s songs in 2006, the duo has only done a few live shows until now. As Sax Ruins, they have restructured the orchestration of Ruins with the involvement of the saxophone with the result sounding like a big band playing progressive Jazz Core.
ONO RYOKO is actively working as an improvisational musician in Nagoya, Japan. She also plays in jazz, rock, funk, rhythm & blues and hip hop bands, as well as working as a studio musician. In 2007, she formed her own band, “Ryorchestra.” Ono has created her own musical language, “Language R,” to compose and write lyrics. Some tracks have dramatic movements like progressive rock, and some have clear classical influences. Lately, she uses “non-breath” circulation technique and multi-phonics to explore and pursue endless, rich and complex sounds.
