WasaVi – Artist symbolizing Decadency and Beauty, Releasing 1st Single on August 4th (Fri) 2023
Is freedom truly happiness? New Age music created by WasaVi, a fantasy world woven with beauty and decadence.
Wasavi – Music Producer of “Benefit one MONOLIZ” during their D League 20-23 Season; Releases his first Single『Ocean of Strings』
This piece begins with the warm singing of a choir, depicting a somewhat melancholic yet aesthetic world through its mysterious orchestral sound and unique vocal style.
As the title “Strings,” this composition is constructed using string instruments and instruments made of threads, drawing the listener into a fantasy world.
A notable aspect of WasaVi’s work is the portrayal of scenes through sound.
The introduction where the cello takes center stage, one can perceive a comforting warmth, resembling being cradled in the womb, recreating a sense of protection by a maternal presence.
In the following section, the pizzicato technique portrays the innocence and curiosity of early childhood.
As the song goes on, it gradually intensifies like a raging sea, dragging the listener in an illusion of being consumed by violent waves.
This work being composed and written amongst the theme of the virtues and limitations of freedom, it will have the people question;
Is freedom truly happiness?
Do all people have to strive to become who they aspire to be?
The Music Video will be released the following week on August 11th, 2023.
A decadent and elegant music video awaits, featuring dancers AMI and Keijiro, along with the bondage artist Kohei Shibusawa.

In this world, there are far too few words that acknowledge those who have not chosen freedom. There are far too few words that let people give up on what they want to do.
We are all already tired of worrying, unable to walk any further, yet we are still expected to keep fighting.
We just want to be released from the captivity of freedom.
We want to be relieved.
We want to forget who we aspire to be.

Title：『Ocean of Strings』
『Ocean of Strings』
In this womb, I spun and spun yarn to
get more than one string, more than one string to my bow
In this womb, you hold me on not to
drown in the ocean of strings, in the ocean of 5 strings
Your warmth spread through my body cold
Froze every bones
Can’t stand up on my own
Now bind me so tight to brace my spine till I look fine
And l deeply relieved to be twined
Free me out from your guard
Free me out from your arms
Who broke my bow? Who set my route?
Who took my last breath?
Who kept me from this dark ocean of, ocean of strings?
Passing time makes you come undone.
But I pretend not to see it unwound.
Stretching mesh let the sound of waves in
And it echoes in my ears loud
Something keeps breathing down my neck to reveal who I am
Someone who has no wound
You know nothing’s here
I know nothing’s here
Pinch me when I fall into the dream
So I won’t go out of the scheme
Hitch me with your string even though it’s just seam
Sew my lips not to scream
Tie me up, tie me up, pull my strings, just tie me up
So I say I can’t dive in ocean of strings
Tangled up, tangled up, act like strongly tangled up
So I won’t notice I’m already drowning in the ocean of strings
WasaVi, an artist who lures us into a decadent fantasy world with vivid, thematic scene descriptions. His work is woven with vibrant stories conducted with diverse sounds and a unique vocal style rooting from Chant, portraying pain and conflict.
Started music interest with the electric organ at the age of 3, and composing music since age of 6, WasaVi explored various instruments and music during his student years, including the Saxophone, vocal music, and Shamisen. He holds a record number of the most appearances as a ballroom MC in Japan. And in 2022, he served as the MC for the first Asia Night Embassy, a club event by Jägermeister. From 2020 to 2023, he worked as the music producer for “Benefit one MONOLIZ” as the world’s first professional dance league, the “D. LEAGUE.”
“Save my past self.” The listeners of WasaVi’s music are none other than himself in the past. Continuously going back and forth of ideal and reality, true emotions and pretense, he creates an enchanting fantasy world to support himself, and those who are now currently suffering.
The decadent world expressed with a blend of orchestral and ethnic sounds serves as a sanctuary for those who find suffocation in the bright and optimistic world. It captivates with its vivid yet mysterious tones, offering peace to people feeling constrained in the midst of their daily lives.
