Released on and/OAR side label mOAR.
Continuing onward with the new mOAR division of
and/OAR, we next have Yuki Kaneko's Rut, a beautiful
sparkling kaleidoscopic homage to the common wonders
of day to day life, which displays this young composer's
already great talent for subtly weaving together
complex textures of electronic and acoustic sound
sources into cleverly abstract melodic musings.
A first "draft" or version of Rut was released on Magic
Book Records in Japan a few months prior. This version
is remastered and remixed (with one new track) which
improves the flow and heightens the emotive dynamics
of the entire release. Needless to say, and/OAR is quite
pleased to present this version of Yuki Kaneko's debut
solo album which is limited to 300 copies (the Magic
Book version was issued at 500 copies).
Yuki Kaneko is a sound artist based in Tokyo. Since 2001
Yuki has been involved with acoustic sound design,
soundtracks for various stage productions, sound
installations, and he runs his own CDR label called
PhaseRubRec. One of Yuki's projects (hum) was featured
in Improvised Music From Japan 2009 magazine/CD x 3.
