Takuji Naka / Tim Olive // ​​Minouragatake TAPE

¥ 1,100
  • Availability:

A limited edition of 100 albums released by Notice Recordings in NY by Takuji Naka, an experimental musician living in Kyoto, and Tim Olive, an experimental musician living in Kobe.Includes 7 soundscapes from a cassette deck and magnetic pickups.

Olive and Naka's collaboration pairs two musicians working with lo- / mid-fi sonics and modified / self-made instruments. Through extensive recording and touring, the duo has honed a patient aesthetic, allowing each other's sounds to unfold with minimal, sure-footed interactions, akin to moving along a path up the mountain for which this release is titled. Naka's sources here consist mainly of "long loops of sagging / distressed cassette tape winding into and out of similarly distressed portable tape players, with real-time analog processing "Olive uses magnetic pickups and analog electronics. This leads to sounds of uncertain provenance, playfully emerging from a thick analog haze, building toward surprising, subtle crescendos. This is work that results from, and produces, an active semblance of stillness.
