For nearly ten years now, Johan Gustavsson Winther has been recording and performing under the Tsukimono moniker, creating a body of work characterized as much by change, forward motion and heart as any specific sound or style. From beautiful drones to harsh noise to acoustic guitar-ditties and pop-tinged weirdness, JGW represents a strain of artists never content, never satisfied with what they’ve got going at the moment, always moving on, for better or worse.
JGW has performed numerous shows all around Europe and Japan, both solo and as part of one of his many other projects and bands such as Scraps Of Tape, Blessings, Viktor Sjöberg New Jazz Ensemble, Alina and many more.
With a discography spanning everything from self-released cd-rs to regular cd’s, vinyl, cassettes and even a winebottle/glass/cd-r-box, he has released his music on a wide range of labels including Slaapwel, Kning Disk, Release The Bats, Kalligrammofon, Structures Sonores, Komplott, Hockey Rawk, Hwem and Psychic Malmö.
