Aube - 2000 - Set-On

>> Wednesday, October 3, 2007

Aube is a solo project, begun in 1991 by Akifumi Nakajima. Taking a minimalist approach for his recordings, Nakajima uses simple source sounds which are fed into his system, then heavily processed into a vast dimensional landscape of sonic textures. Source sounds can range from the organic sounds of gurgling water, to isolating elements of technology, such as the curious hum of luminous lamps. The result is a mixture of controlled manipulation and beautiful accident. Since May of 1992, Nakajima started and continues to operate G.R.O.S.S. - his own cassette label dedicated to releasing experimental music, and noise, in addition to his own recordings as Aube. He has worked on recordings with artists from Japan, Europe and the United States in various different capacities and has designed packaging for many other releases. I'm bringing you an album called Set On which contains two tracks called Set On and No Set, both run around half an hour so you get alot of noisy time! CD is packaged between two ceramic tiles, limited to 1000 copies (and as I like to say the more limited the more tasty to listen) and Recorded March-August 2000 at Studio MECCA Kyoto Japan using only stone as a source material. So interesting stuff, have fun!
