Biography

Watabou is the solo electronic project from the mind of multi-instrumentalist Travis Jarosz. With his blend of intelligence and raw power, Watabou aims to evoke the emotions of any audience to the utmost, be it through intensive melodies, driving rhythms, powerful words, or any other number of qualities attributed to the act. Watabou’s conception wasn’t one of dedication or seriousness; in fact, being a long time musician, Jarosz just wanted to create something that he felt addressed all the strong points of music without all of the downfalls of common bands. After his early success with the idea, Watabou was quick to become a priority among other various musical projects Jarosz was involved with at the time. Since then, Watabou has drastically recreated its sound and ideals, which has made it possible to gain attention and performed with several national and internationally renowned artists such as Realicide, Bubblegum Octopus, and Yatagarasu.

In the beginning, though electronic, Watabou was a method of synthesizing realistic instruments in a way that was plausible for one person to perform with in a live setting. As Jarosz learned more and more about his style and more about his weaknesses, he began to make up for what he previously lacked, leaving no vulnerabilities for anyone to target, and doing everything possible to create solid electronic music for everyone to enjoy.

Watabou has been commonly described as a “Heavily Psychological and Philosophical musical endeavor” by many in reference to the amount of depth put into each song in order to provoke a specific set of emotions and awareness of those emotions in his listeners.
