Document 02 - Sine

Going on with the compilations thing. In this case we have 3 composers and a band called Dumb Type. I'll start with Dumb Type, I know, unusual name, but the band has an very inteligent aproach to noise and to music in general. Members include persons trained in the visual arts, architecture, music composition, computer programming and other disciplines, whose collective and multimedia work includes such diverse formats as art exhibitions, performances, audiovisuals and print publications. Each project touches on a variety of social contexts, confronting such themes as AIDS, civilization, nationality, identity, communication (from body language to computer network) being the main subject of research. Dumb Type explores the undefined borders of the information society for new visions of human/system interaction. All in all an very interesting band which makes this compilation tempting to get. Others on this compilation are Roji Ikeda who is also a member of Dumb Type but he also made some of his own stuff on this CD. Next we have Yoshio Ojima, I didn't find any tpye-worthy info about him but he is a composer and uses computers to programgentle,ambient music. Last we have Satsuki Shibano who is an pianist and well known Erik Satie player, dedicated to the creation of another world out of classical music, she released 7 albums I might post some when I find them. So anyway, a worthwhile compilation be sure to check it out! Oh and I forgot, there is also a song which is a colaboration between Yoshio Ojima and Satsuki Shibano.
