The Rashomon Effect makes electronic music inspired by film, literature and experience aimed at stirring imagery and stories in the minds of listeners.


The phrase The Rashomon Effect takes its meaning from the classic Japanese movie Rashomon, which tells the story of a murder from the viewpoints of four characters. Though their stories are drastically different, each person thinks believes he or she is telling the truth, calling into question the nature of reality, as all phenomena are filtered through the individual consciousness of the perceiver.


Though we may all be more or less trapped in our own constantly repeating loop of thoughts and emotions, music at times can bypass those and create a shared experience.
