Yuko Araki, who is active in the Tokyo underground scene, released a new work from Australia room 40 in April 2021.Contains 4 post-industrial techno songs.

 

Yuko Araki is one of a number of young female artists emerging from Japan that are redefining the outer boundaries of noise, post-industrial techno and experimental electronics.

Raised as a pianist, Araki's teenage obsession with metal opened a gateway towards various types of intense sonics. Exploring a range of diverse music projects over the past decade, her solo work resolved in 2019 after she developed an approach to freeform analog noise. Working with a reductive set of tools, her methodology was to create work that created a sense of timbral density and complexity through a weaving together of competing elements.

End Of Trilogy pushes this approach outward, taking in almost Kosmiche sensibilities, creating a sound that glints with the unsteady radiation of a pulsar. The album is an offering of competing states of tension and release. It merges polychromatic pulses against waves of sheering noise. and uneasy ruptures of sound.

End Of Trilogy is a record of unpredictable momentum and tempered ferocity. Even at its most intense. Yuko Araki's work maintains a sense of playfulness, and a determination not to succumb to mere sonic nihilism. Drawing on techniques borrowed from 70s prog-rock and even free jazz, she dissolves expectation and in the process reveals an utterly personal approach to noise and experimental electronics.

End Of Trilogy is not merely a conclusion, but rather an interrogation of what comes next.
