Stated as an influence by musicians such as RYONAI (Blam Honey), Hora (ex-Schwarz Stein, Another Cell, solo), Pride of Mind and Velvet Eden, electro-industrial/Synth Pop band Soft Ballet formed in 1986 consisting of three members, Ryoichi Endo, Ken Morioka and Maki Fujii. It wasn’t until September 1989, however, that they made their major debut on ALFA RECORDS and released their first album "Earth Born". This was then followed by the albums "Document" in 1990 and "Ai to heiwa" in 1991.
Soft Ballet released their first 5 singles, 3 albums and 4 videos through ALFA, before changing to Victor in 1992. The first album to be released through Victor was "Million Mirrors" in October of 1992 and after that, "Incubate" was released in 1993.
In 1994 Ken Morioka released his first solo album titled "Questions", but also remained active with Soft Ballet, including a live with Luna Sea and Buck-Tick that year called "LSB". Maki Fujii was also in a side project called "Schaft" with Imai from Buck-Tick and Raymond Watts from PIG at this time.
The band announced that they were to disband at a live in NHK Hall in April 1995. Despite the sudden announcement of their disbanding, Soft Ballet released the album "Form" in April 1995 and continued with the tour, but ceased all activities after their final live in July of that year. "The Ultimate Best of Soft Ballet" was then released in September 1995.
Although Soft Ballet had disbanded, they did reissue their 1990 album "3 [drai]" 1996 adding 3 bonus tracks (called "3 [drai] + 3"). Their official status, however, remained inactive. Ken Morioka continued with his solo project, Ryoichi Endo also worked on his own solo project "Ends" and Maki Fujii started the band She Shell.
In August 2002 Soft Ballet re-formed and played at Summer Sonic and released their first album for 6 years entitled "Symbiont". They then released another album "Menopause" in October 2003 before finally disbanding again in December.
After that two "best of" albums were released. The members are currently continuing writing and performing music with their respective solo projects.
