Rain On Bamboo is a project of Ingo Ito. Other projects by him here on IndiependenceMusic.net are:
Rain On Bamboo was founded in 1992 by Ingo Ito as an open band project with varying musicians.
After the basically pop-orientated music of Bamboo Industry, Rain On Bamboo shifted to a different, rather "avantgardish" style of music influenced by artists like Brian Eno, King Crimson, David Sylvian or Ryuichi Sakamoto.
There was much space for improvisational performances within the loose framework of the songs of their first album "Sleep & Poetry" and the recording approach was regarded as a piece of art in itself with the music painting a colourful picture for the listener´s own imagination.
Rain On Bamboo´s 2nd album "Suburban Skirmish" was nearly completely recorded by Ingo Ito on his own as a multitrack studio album, due to the lack of time of the originally wanted fellow musicians.
