Gutevolk is the solo music project of Japanese musician Hirono Nishiyama. With electronic music at its base, her sound is one that seems to have eaten the genres of the world; colored by a variety of instruments and sounds, multilingual lyrics and coined words, she expresses an original, evil, pop worldview.
Hirono Nishiyama began working under her own name in 1999 on Nobukazu Takemura’s Childisc label. In 2002, she moved to Haruomi Hosono’s Daisyworld Discs, where she would adopt the name Gutevolk. In addition to releasing a number of albums, she has toured inside and outside of Japan and created music for TV programs, commercials, and theater works. Always working at her own pace, she has also been active as a DJ and produced her own music videos.
In the summer of 2021, she began a collaboration with filmmaker Koichiro Tsujikawa over social media, the Mezameru Wakusei audiovisual exchange diary. On February 1st, 2023, Mezameru Wakusei, an album composed of spinoff songs from the collaboration, was released. After the original project concluded in January with the sixth installment of the series, a new collaboration project with Tsujikawa began on February 14th.
