omb is the solo project by Kei Komatsu. Influenced by techno music in his teens, Kei shifted to computer music production after absorbing experimental techno, contemporary classical music, and the avant-gardes.

The music by omb equally utilises complex computer programming and unintentional mistakes, creating ever changing charming yet emotional tracks. Solid sonic textures and ambient sounds clash beautifully within these poignant electronic pop songs. While studying at engineering school, Kei produced tracks for commercials, and released some 12" on O-Parts.

"Oral/method" was omb's first full-lenght album, and his use of visuals in his many live shows have gained him a lot of attention, most recently by the Japanese star label Daisyworld.
