Born in 1952 in Chiba, Japan, Haino was initially drawn to theatre as inspired by Antonin Artaud. But an encounter with The Doors led Haino into music, where he has examined and absorbed a wide range of genres from the early blues of Blind Lemon Jefferson, European medieval music, Iannis Xenakis, Blue Cheer, Syd Barrett, and Charlie Parker. In 1970 he became the vocalist for the group Lost Aaraaf, named after Edgar Allan Poe’s poem, while developing as a self-taught guitarist and percussionist. In 1978 Haino formed the seminal rock band Fushitsusha. Since 1988 he has been internationally active as a solo performer or leading a variety of ensembles including garage psychedelia Aihiyo, power trio Nazoranai, as well as collaborations with Jim O’Rourke, Peter Brötzmann, Fred Frith, John Zorn, Derek Bailey, and many others. Keiji Haino has released more than 170 recordings and performed at least 1,500 concerts.

Keiji Haino performs in the Pyramid at the Summerhill Winery as part of the Skin and Bones Music Series on May 23. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. and the concert will begin at 8 p.m.
