After one year of silence Takeshi Nakamura, one of our top
contributors, returns with a brand new album, again taking us to the
fringes of electronic music.
"Miscellaneous Goods" is a ten track album where Nakamura draws on new
inspiration, binding abstract elements to form compositions that cross
the thin line standing between sound and noise.
Each track from this album has a cerebral birthplace, emerging as
abstract figures which Takeshi has tried to fix into such titles as,
Gap, Collapse, Degeneration, Dining Table, Array. The sound must be
contemplated and explored, like standing in front of a carved monolith
Contemplation is the keyword for approaching Takeshi's music, like
having a passive aural experience but standing in the fields of the
audible, of music.
Just like the great sound artists, such as Ryoji Ikeda or Autechre are
still doing, Takeshi Nakamura succeeds in translating personal feelings
into pure digital data.
However, the feelings translated in this album are at times troublesome and oppressive.
Here you won't find lovely melodies, solar soundscapes, nor easy beats.
Nakamura's inspiration stands somewhere else and that's why
Miscellaneous Goods is tough, complex, and needs time in order to be
