Product description

Nobukazu Takemura's impressive contribution to the otherwise unimpressive Reich Remixed marked him as a talent to watch. But on Scope, his U.S. debut under his own name (he released a record under the Child's View moniker in May 1999), Takemura is revealed as an artist with a singular rhythmic and textural imagination whose music recognizes no boundaries. The opening track, "On a Balloon," is rhythmic in the cinematic sense; a flickering pattern of digital blips strategically reappears throughout its 22-minute duration to link disparate sections of manipulated vinyl surface noise, throbbing keyboard tones, and the sounds of skipping CDs. On the next track, "Kepler," Takemura revisits Reich country by stringing sampled metalophones, harps, and female voices in dense, hypnotic repeated patterns around sustained synthetic hums. On "Taw" he swings doppler-shifting sequences of clicks and carousel organ tones in a vertiginous, elliptical orbit. He even tips his hat to old-old-school electronics on "Tiddler," a closing prayer that would have fit in fine on Cluster's Sowiesoso. --Bill Meyer
