Tadashi Goto biography
TADASHI GOTO was born in 1976 and grew up listening to classical music. He began playing the organ at the age of 5 and was composing by the time he was 10 years old. He joined the Yamaha Original Concert in Japan where he met YOSHIHIKO UJIHARA (X-JAPAN) a professional guitarist. UJIHARA, taught TADASHI GOTO synthesizers oriented compositions and progressive rock. He also met DONNY SCHWEKENDIEK a professional jazz pianist who taught him jazz rock.

In 2000-2001 while he was in Newcastle, NSW, Australia as an English grammar postgraduate student he revisited his compositions he wrote while he was a child and recorded some demos. Upon his return to Japan he finished writing the demos and submitted them to Musea Records and his first solo album "Soundscape" was released in 2005 on Musea France/Intermusic Japan.

TADASHI GOTO follow up release "Innervisions" was released in 2008 on Prog Rock Records. On this release he combines the extraordinary talents of CHRIS POLAND, BRETT GARSED, TY TABOR, TONY LEVIN, TONY FRANKLIN, MATT BISSONETTE, JOSEPH PATRICK MOORE, RANDY GEORGE, SEAN CONKLIN, JOSE BERNARDO and MARCO AHRENS.

TADASHI GOTO is currently in the studio to begin his new project. This time he has hired some vocalists. The release date is yet to be determined and will most likely be released as an EP or on I-Tunes. MICHELLE YOUNG and WENDY STARLAND will handle the vocals and RICHARD FORTUS (GN'R), CHRIS BROADERICK (MEGADETH), STEVE ROTHERY (MARILLION) are among the special guests anticipated on his new project.

WHY IS THIS BAND IN THE ARCHIVES:

TADASHI GOTO is a progressive rock composer that is heavily keyboard oriented. Yet his compositions possess the power and heaviness of any metal band. TADASHI GOTO was approved by the Prog Metal Team and is very highly recommended.

2 stars Japanese keyboardist,born in 1976.Goto grew up listening to Classical music and learned organ since he was only 5 years old.At the age of 22 he moved to Australia as a postgraduate student learning English grammar,there he experimented with the synthesizers,but also came in touch with the Jazz-Fusion style of U.K. and CHICK KOREA.Shortly after he begun re-working some of his old compositions in a Fusion style and recorded them while returning to Japan.The demos were sent to Musea,which decided to release his first solo work ''Soundscape'' in 2005.

An all personal effort and a true hymn to dissonance,''Soundscape'' is filled with Goto's piano and synthesizers, surrounded by a programmed rhythm section, effects and other programmed instruments like marimbas.His work is characterized by the complicated breaks, the atonal parts, the technical offering and the virtuosic solos, while the compositions are split between structured sections and more improvised moments.The overall sound is very rich,quite heavy with also plenty of lighter moments, always in a classic Fusion style presented by acts like PLANET X,LIQUID TENSION EXPERIMENT,MINDFLOWERS or DEREK SHERINIAN (minus the guitars).However the album suffers from two big problems: The absence of any kind of melody,which becomes more and more evident as the album unfolds, and the childish programmed drum sounds, which can only fit in a video game but not in a professional release of adventurous music.

This man is a talented keyboardist,no doubt.His ideas are interesting and the fact he composed such a highly technical and cohesive work cannot be overcome.Still the addition of some melodic parts and the help of some session musicians should give him the needed push in terms of development.''Soundscape'' is a good album for fans of heavy Jazz-Fusion,all the others try some samples first before buying...2.5 stars.
