"Shina Yukiko Sakurazawa is a contrabass player who mainly works in the field of classical music. On the other hand, Kon Okuma is a contrabass player who works mainly in the field of jazz. However, both of them play improvisations irregularly at a venue called Ftarri. Wondering what would happen if these two people from different backgrounds collaborated, zappak decided to plan an event that mainly involved bows. , Okuma mainly took the approach of using tools such as finger picks and sticks.The two people's sounds were sometimes quiet and other times eloquent, repeating the sound without moving. It was like a journey between people from different worlds finding a common language.On that day, we performed two impromptu performances of around 5 minutes, but there were a few changes in key. Therefore, this work is divided into five parts and recorded in rearranged format."Click here to see more zappak releases available...

This is a CD released by Greek double bass player Charis Pazaroulas from Tokyo's experimental label Zappak in May 2024. Below is an explanation by the label. "Charis Pazaroulas is a Greek double bass player. In addition to the National Orchestra of Athens, he also belongs to and performs in the groups TETTTIΞ and Quinteto TANGartO. In this work, he creates a multi-layered sound that interweaves the double bass with his own voice. [TRANSCENDENCE I] opens with songs inspired by composer James Tenney's work 'Koan', each with a stoic minimalism. It creates a sense of tension for the listener, but as you listen to it, you'll find more melodious elements in the song, and Pazaroulas' voice, layered over the sound of the double bass, has a mystical quality to it. You can feel his individuality throughout his work, which refuses to be expressed in a single word."Click here to see more zappak...

This is a CD released by Venezuelan collage artist Gil Sansón from Tokyo's experimental label Zappak in May 2024. Below is an explanation by the label. "Gil Sansón is a Venezuelan artist. His solo works include Full Spectrum and Unfathomless. He has also collaborated with Bruno Duplant and Lance Austin Olsen, and his works have been published on Confront, Suppedaneum, elsewhere, etc. All of his works use sounds with a mysterious texture, and their uniqueness makes them interesting, unlike any other artist. This work opens with a quiet noise. Gradually, I begin to hear the sounds of the city, and the sounds of typewriters and radios that sound like monologues echo. Between sounds that come and go like ripples and silence, all sounds melt into the space, and before you know it, the boundaries between environmental sounds, physical sounds, and electronic sounds have melted into a gray space in which the boundaries between environmental sounds, physical sounds, and electronic sounds are unclear. I'm sure that's what you're saying. " I also recommend the previous work. Click here for other works by the label /// Click here to see...

It's like sticking your head into a packed jukebox. Sometimes it's a cut-up, sometimes it's seamless, and the exotic sounds switch quickly. An adventure awaits.

Experimental musician Noah Ophoven-Baldwin from Minneapolis, USA released this CD in June 2023 from Tokyo's experimental label zappak.Includes 6 improvisational songs with acoustic instruments and noises.Below is an explanation by the label. "A memorable first solo album by Noah Ophoven-Baldwin, a multi-instrumentalist living in Minneapolis, USA and a member of the music group "Realtree". This work has the theme of "time/clock", and Baldwin plays the metronome. Combining cyclical sounds with acoustic instruments, I tried to traverse performance and conceptual sound art.The cornet and harmonium create organic textures (Mitch Stahlmann joins the flute on the second track), while the metronome repeats sharp, short notes like driving stakes.The instrumental sounds that sound like they were played in a relaxed room and the sharp metronome sounds seem to be in contrast, and the careful arrangement of the field-recorded sounds creates a wonderfully beautiful unity. ing.
