Paina is the musical alias of Japanese electronic producer Kota who began creating music at the age of 14 with a Yamaha QY70. Eventually expanding his hardware collection, in 2008 his Paina project was born with a sampler, synthesizer, rhythm box and so on. Since then he has also evolved with guitar and piano being included into his sonic tapestry as well. Unconfined to a single genre, his sound encompasses various atmospheres such as experimental, lo-fi, drone and soundtrack, to name a few. His live performances are especially special because of this trait of sonic versatility.
