AKISAI

​- 空采 -

AKISAI is a composer and singer-songwriter. She also directs, produces, edits and performs in all of the music videos for her original songs.

AKISAI's work, the music video "Floating Blue" won Best Original Artist at the New York Nil Gallery 2022 and has been selected as a Winner, Finalist and Semi-Finalist in different countries.

AKISAI studied classical music and was influenced by a wide range of music including jazz and rock. In her late teens, she began working on commissioned music, but after more than 10 years of life experience, she restarted her career as a composer.
AKISAI started entering international composition competitions in 2020.
She was honorable mention in The Indie Gathering Film Scoring Competition 2020 and 6th place winner in 2021.

"Not a Dream" from the musical "This is Love" won Commended Entry in the Open and Love Song categories at The UK Songwriting Contest 2021, and was a Bronze winner in Lyrics / Songwriting at the Global Music Awards 2022, July.
In addition, The musical numbers "Crazy Tango" and "What's wrong with me?" from the musical "This is Love" won bronze medals in the music video category at the Global Music Awards 2022 in July and September, respectively.

"Twilight Moon" and "What's wrong with me ?!" from the musical " This is Love" won Commended Entry in the Open category of The UK Songwriting Contest 2022.

AKISAI is currently working on developing the musical "This is Love."
She is visualizing several musical numbers and producing them as music videos and musical short films.
The videos produced are works of art, but can be used as scripts, scores, and image material for performances and screenings.

 

AKISAI initially wrote the theme song for the musical "This is Love" and submitted it to a songwriting contest.
After reading the feedback from the judges, AKISAI realized that the judges did not understand the situation of a male duo singing about their love for each other.
That was the impetus for making the video. But there was no way she could afford to hire a musical actor, so she took on the challenge of playing both roles herself.
AKISAI graduated from an acting school, in case you were wondering.

AKISAI continues to challenge herself in the musical "This is Love".
