In 1998 Julian La Brooy's four track recorder was tragically destroyed. A sound tracker completely changed everything and Hitori Tori was born. Agitated breaks became combined with tweaked arpeggiated synth lines, some cut up vocals, and a few lugubrious tones were thrown into the background for good measure.
Early releases included tracks as part of the electronic duo Finch on the Sugarmonk/Interchill Om Complilation in 1999. Fasp, another musical incarnation, released an album on Nishi Records in 2002. Contributing a track to Balanced Records' Northern Faction 4 compilation, Hitori Tori continued with his meticulously detailed productions. Having played shows in Japan and Canada, Hitori Tori currently performs and resides in Vancouver. Julian currently works as a Medical English Instructor when he's not in the production studio.
