Guitarist, composer, sound artist and mastering engineer, Kelly Churko was born in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan on August 18, 1977. While studying classical piano and theory in his childhood, Kelly travelled extensively throughout Canada with his family band playing country music. While studying jazz guitar at Vancouver Community College in the late 90s, he started the bands Almost Transparent Blue and Hospital. He moved to Tokyo shortly after, where he soon gained a reputation as one of the most versatile and sought-after collaborators in the Tokyo underground.
Kelly was a proponent of challenging musical forms that transcended genre, and had a gift for complexity that was punctuated by a deeper interest and understanding of mathematics, physics and philosophy. He made an indelible mark on a worldwide community of musicians through his selfless support for the sonic arts, coupled with a fearless vision for the music and our place in it. He leaves behind a demanding and diverse body of work which we are all still catching up with.
Kelly played in Hospital (w/ Ben Wilson, Masa Anzai, Chris Kelly), Ossuary (w/ Sotoyama Akira, Ito Keita), Almost Transparent Blue (w/ Masa Anzai, Skye Brooks), AKBK, Lethal Firetrap (w/ Guilty Connector), King Goblin, JUGEM (w/ Masahico Shimaji, SACHI-A), Palimpsest (w/ Cal Lyall), Nikka-sen (w/ Tabata Mitsuru, Cal Lyall, Yamamoto Tatsuhisa), Toque (w/ Tim Olive), Fujii Satoko Orchestra and more. He also has collaborated live or on recording with Government Alpha, ASTRO, Zbigniew Karkowski, Bastard Noise, Ilios, Paal Nilssen-Love, Jason Mears, Harris Eisenstadt, and played regularly with Japanese improvisers including Tamura Natsuki, Honda Tamaya, Kawai Shinobu, Iwami Keigo, Ikezawa Ryusaku, Kamimura Taiichi, Matsumoto Kenichi, Nakamura Kenji, Ando Akihiko, Saito “Shacho” Ryoichi and many, many more.
