We are pleased to present the third edition zeroso, the first full-length work by Nobuki Nishiyama."Residue" is the product of misuse and misconfiguration in audio equipment.Phase turbulence, feedback, and interference are hated by both performers and engineers because they can't accurately reflect the intent of playing on stage, but Nishiyama, who is also a live sound engineer, does. I have also felt the irresistible charm of the unexpected movement of sound created by the abominable elements.This work intentionally caused these phenomena inside actual audio equipment and computers.

The work consists of a very simple and basic signal routing, with only a few oscillators, filters and effects lined up in the audio and parameter signals.However, they are mutually fed back and interfered by the LFO, creating fluctuations and vibrations in the signal sound of a simple oscillator, which is subtle, unstable but rich-at the same time distorted and unpleasant. ..
This "fluctuation / vibration" as a "phenomenon" of sound is not new at all, and has been practiced by countless musicians since ancient times.On the other hand, it has also been eliminated. "Residue" is a roundabout record of things that are often rejected as "things to be truncated."

edition zeroso is pleased to announce the first full length release from Japanese producer / live sound engineer Nobuki Nishiyama.
"residue" is the product of erroneous usages and settings of acoustic devices. Phasal disarray, feedback, interference: none of these can be accurately produced on stage through the performers' intentions, and as such, they are normally abhorred by both performers and engineers Nishiyama works as a live engineer but he has come to feel an irresistible attraction towards the unpredictable movements of sound produced by these abhorrent elements.
This work is made up those types of phenomena, deliberately produced on acoustic devices or within computers. It is created using extremely simple and basic signal routing: the audio and parameter signals are passed through several oscillators, filters and effects units. The reciprocal feedback and low frequency oscillations between the devices creates interference, bringing microtonal instabilities and rich (and simultaneously warped and unpleasant) fluctuations and vibrations to the simple sound of the oscillators.
As a sonic phenomenon, these fluctuations and vibrations are of course nothing new, and innumerable musicians have deployed them over the years. However, they are also elements that have long been excluded. "Residue" is a record of those things which are more usually seen as appropriate for disposal.
