NO.5 is the name of the musical unit formed by Taishiji, a beat-maker in Kagawa, and Tokiyo, a musician in Osaka (And Summer Club, etc.)


“NO.5”

NO.5 was formed during Japan’s National Declaration of State of Emergency made in response to COVID-19. The pair connected with each other not from behind masks, but via telephone, and started out gradually by electronically exchanging sound bites. The unit’s members are said to be Taishiji and Tokiyo, but their identities and the scope of their musical activities are shrouded in mystery. It is unclear if “Taishiji” or “Tokiyo” may each actually be two or three different people. Some even believe that they may even be animals, and if you listen closely, it is said that you may hear the breath of a sleeping turtle, or the whistle of a bird in their music. The fifth person, the fifth note in a scale, the fifth word of a poem, the fifth lie, the fifth truth, the fifth night, the fifth morning. The music is being made by a fifth hand.

"NO.5"について

"NO.5"はこの国の緊急事態宣言下で結成された。マスク越しならぬ、電話越しに話は決ま り、いくつかの音のやり取りから少しずつ動き出した。 太史慈とTokiyoのユニットということになってるけど実は、太史慈は二人いるかも知れな いし、Tokiyoは三人かもしれない。 動物がメンバーという説もあり、耳をすませば亀の寝息や、鳥のさえずりが聞こえてくる とかこないとか。 五番目の人、五番目の音、五番目の街、五番目の言葉、五番目の嘘、五番目の真実、五番 目の夜、五番目の朝。 五番目の手が音楽を鳴らしている。
