Moving on to summer, I played some guitar for Alex Kulak (AZAZELLO) in Russia, did guitar and vocals (!) for Akiko Takahashi of ARS NOVA (Tokyo) for her new AKIKO'S COSMO SPACE album, then next contributed a nice long solo to M.DESTINY (of FNP)'s new digital release.


Interviews: Automatonomy: An Interview with Keiko Kumagai of Ars Nova - Sea of Tranquility - The Web Destination for Progressive Music!

Akiko Takahashi played drums on 7 albums, beginning with Transi (1995), and concluding with "Against The Meteors" on the new album.
Are there any special circumstances surrounding her departure and [keyboardist/vocalist] Mika's? As you already know, Akiko left in March, but her reasons for doing so remain private. She's still drumming in another band, Danball Bat. Mika left the band last November because she wants to devote herself to Triton [the keyboard trio-styled band she formed prior to joining Ars Nova]. Akiko and I had to find someone.

Review: "Ars Nova: Biogenesis Project" - Sea of Tranquility - The Web Destination for Progressive Music!

Biogenesis also looks to be drummer-violinist Akiko Takahashi's and keyboardist-vocalist Mika's curtain calls: Mika's contributions are purely vocal, and Akiko wears down her sticks on only one track.Akiko and Mika may not be locked out of future works, but the new lineup (as of June 2003) is clearly advertised on the new official site: longtime keyboardist Keiko Kumagai, new bassist Panky (their first non-guesting bass player since Kyoko Kanazawa left), and stand-in drummer Masuhiro Goto, at first on loan from Gerard, but now an official member (Gerard and Arsnova are both managed by Made In Japan Records/Transi owner, and Biogenesis Project conceptualist, Shingo "Numero" Ueno). Voice narrations and vocal bits bubble up by Ueno, Akiko, Mika, and Robert & Barbara Allen-Robert co-scripted the translated story with Keiko. None of the invited guests, just Keiko and whoever happens to accompany her on whichever track: "Mother Earth" involves Mika, and Masuhiro, who also plays an acoustic guitar solo; Atsushi and Takeo step in on "Metamorphosis"; enter Akiko (vocoder only) on "Humanoid's Breakfast," with Goto & Ueno.By the duo of Keiko and Takahashi (now on drums), "Against The Meteors" (3:25) begins with a very familiar piano motif (hear it and smirk).Sadly, this may be the last we hear of Akiko for a while, if ever.
