***** Yodaka - Yodaka *****

2009-06-30 08:52:59 UTC
Born in Hiroshima, Daisuke started off as the composer and guitarist of postrock band Yodaka in 2001. Having evaluated their sound, they have been praised by Jim O’Rourke. Being inspired by their psychedelic sound due to a postrock approach and by Maurizio Bianchi, Daisuke started his solo project in 2004. As a solo artist his idea is to create not only acoustic, but also electronic filmy soundscapes and atmospheres. He is doing that by melting together a variety of classic instruments, spoken word snippets, and crisp beats. With a proper amount of ambient music, all of these form an exquisite sound experience. One day, while his tracks were selling on several CD-R’s, a honorable moment for Daisuke occurred when Ryuichi Sakamoto introduced a demo of Daisuke’s one lyrical opus ‘April.#02’ in his radio show Radio Sakamoto on Tokyo’s J-Wave channel. ------------------- ( By all means do not miss this one.

Review for OVUM by Chronotope Project

Crafting a concept album is an incredibly difficult task. Tying together a cohesive narrative across a record’s worth of songs isn’t just daunting, it’s an endeavour that even some of the industry’s finest have failed to do memorably. This task, however, becomes notably more difficult when you’re dealing in the abstract via instrumental soundscapes. That is what Chronotope Project, the moniker of composer Jeffrey Ericson Allen, attempts to do with his latest project, ‘Ovum.’

Review of A703 by Naal

NAAL is an eclectic music project led by Chicago composer Dave Mantel. This talented musician has a true passion for great melodies and haunting musical textures. His blend of ambient, shoegaze and experimental drone music feels personal and unique, echoing the work of artists such as Slowdive, Boards of Canada or Sigur Ros, just to mention a few.
