Anoice is a Tokyo based cinematic instrumental music group formed by multi instrumentalists; Takahiro Kido, Yuki Murata, Utaka Fujiwara, and Tadashi Yoshikawa. When they established the band, Yuki Murata came up with the name Anoise pronounced ‘a noyce’ to mean ‘one noise’. However, they found that name had already been used by other artist via the internet, so they changed the spelling to Anoice.
Their debut album ‘Remmings’ was released on Important Records, Boston in 2006. Their talent was also admired by internationally famous musicians Ryuichi Sakamoto, Nobuo Uematsu, and Christian Fennesz. Anoice then released their highly-praised 3rd album, ‘The Black Rain’ worldwide in 2012, via their own music label, Ricco Label, and also Important Records in US and Flowers Blossom In The Space in Russia. This album was selected as one of the top albums of the year by many music review websites. The Russian hip-hop artist, MiyaGi used one of the album’s tracks, ‘ripple’, as the the backing track for his song, and the music video has received 40 million views on YouTube.
In 2015, Anoice released the 4th album ‘into the shadows’ recorded in not only Tokyo, but also London, Paris, Warsaw, and Moscow. One of the album tracks ‘old lighthouse’ became the #1 trending track on Spotify as Japanese artists, and ‘invasion’ was used as the credit roll tune of ‘Girl Lost’, a US movie which was the #1 trending movie on Amazon Prime Video.
