« Atsuhiro Ito is the developer (inventor) and the single “player” of the custom optical-sonic equipment, “OPTRON,” which emits light and sound simultaneously by using fluorescent light and its discharged electric noise. »
« Datascapes is a sound research project focusing on the soundscape of data centres. (...) Thus the idea of recording the sound environment of data centres would be a poetic way of offering a material and sensitive experience of that hidden yet omnipresent aspect of everyday life: making it audible, tangible. »
« PIKACYU*MAKOTO is an alliance between two figureheads of underground Japanese psych/pop, the musically promiscuous Kawabata Makoto (most famous for his leadership of the legendary Acid Mothers Temple), and Afrirampo's Pikacyu. »
« Atsuhiro Ito perform his own made instrument called "optron" which produces noises from the electrical discharge of a fluorescent light. The music played on optron is a repetition of intense flickers of light and noises and it stimulates and attacks our visual and auditory senses. »
Il s'annonce bien le prochain double CD de Boris et Merzbow.
Surtout que : « Boris and Merzbow have each contributed exactly the same amount of music, with the two discs intended to be played at the same time on physical speakers at varying volumes so that the listener can experience their own “gensho/phenomenon” every time. The artists also commented, “Of course you can enjoy both albums separately, as a separate work.” » (http://newnoisemagazine.com/boris-with-merzbow-complete-collaborative-full-length-gensho/)
