Tomemitsu

loaf eye is an album i’ve been working on for the past 2 years since finishing the debut tomemitsu album, m_o_d_e_s in 2013.  the overarching theme for most of the songs on loaf eye deals with self exploration. looking inwards and becoming at ease with who i am as a musician and human, rather than the themes of love and loss emphasized on m_o_d_e_s.

Susumu Yokota

since his magnificent sakura (2000) and grinning cat (2001) albums the electronic music world has been in thrall to japan’s susumu yokota, a laptop composer whose prolific output of at least one album every year since 1998 is at odds with his compelling creations. when so much of today’s dashed-off ambient music comes off as characterless, indistinguishable and meaningless burble, yokota shows the way. not that he should thank us for calling this hour-long opus ambient.
