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.
