Curated Doom


Japanese artist and musician


QPQQQPQ is a Japanese artist Ken-zi, who writes, produces and plays all the music himself. Live, Ken-zi plays with a backing band.

“The Industrial/Techno sound system is a world with feelings of despair, heavy melody, and frightful tension; and its overwhelming originality does not allow others to come near. It’s not easy to experience this unique world. 

I thought QPQQQPQ might think that DEATH is not only fear and grief, but DEATH also has hope for the next world, and pleasure for the escape from pain.”
