Mouse on the keys

Mouse on the keys is a unique band from Japan and this is what they do:
“A blend of minimal phrased piano and dynamic drumming.
The pursuit of a live experience composed of visual and audio expression. Formed in 2006, with elements of jazz, funk, post
rock and electronic music, Mouse on the Keys fits into a genre of their own.
The trio consists of two former members of the influential Japanese underground band Nine Days Wonder, Akira Kawasaki and Atsushi Kiyota.
They teamed up with Daisuke Niitome, who has played drums as well as composed music for countless jazz
funk and hip hop bands. Their unique sound, comprising two pianos, two keyboards and drums, continue to stand at the forefront of the Japanese indie scene.”

Listen to their ridiculously brilliant performance of 最後の晩餐 from their 2007 release Sezession. “Secession (derived from the Latin term secessio) is the act of withdrawing from an organization, union, or especially a political entity.” (in Wikipedia). Sezession is also a group of Austrian artists created in 1897 which was presided by Gustav Klimt. The Sezession artists resigned from the Association of Austrian Artists because of their conservatism.
