are a Japanese duo of artist/musicians
who make haunting, ethereal electronic lullabies
of otherworldly beauty
It should be no surprise, then, that the band's point of origin is in the virtual world, Second Life
, where they continue to maintain a set of gorgeously minimalist "sims"
(virtual environments). In one such locale, "the Babel
," the group has a large musical toy/sequencer-like "sound lab" installation (which can be purchased for personal use) in which users are able to combine short tones, sounds and loops into full arrangements of their own
. While the band's work has since extended beyond Second Life, they are still credited by their in-world usernames and their only live performances to date have been in the virtual world. The band has released three full albums
and numerous singles, EPs, remixes and conceptual pieces.
Portions of Chouchou's sims in Second Life may been seen here
, and in the Gravity (Electrogirl Remix) and Memento Mori videos above.
No relation to Lily Chou-Chou
beyond the vague, eerie parallels.
