investiages the structures of music, synthesis, and software by programming ideas which introduce new synthesis theories and abnormal operation. The result is a very fragmented and "broken" sounding hybrid of minimalism and techno. Sharp rhythms and strange melodic hooks constructed with tuned, but non-harmonic, sounds. Itoi, based in Kyoto, Japan, founded the experimental electronic label Shrine that fosters many young experimental artists in Kyoto, and released 10 CD-R, and one 12 inch himself. In addition to the creation of his stark form of techno, Itoi offers an energetic live set and organizes many events throughout Kyoto. In 2005 Feb.23,new album "Polyrhythm_system Exclusive Message iii" released from daisyworld discs.

deep around(spillover) 『desktop caffeine』


A solo project by Hiroyuki Tsukakoshi. By sampling sounds of his environment, combining it with live musical instruments and elements that are purely created on the laptop, Hiroyuki Tsukakoshi creates this precise and elevating music. Through the high influence of other computer-generated music styles of today, he feels that his body and his computer act as a filter that the gathered impressions pass through. His arranging, editing and concentrating of often conflicting and accidental noises form a harmony that we can then find familiar. Hiroyuki Tsukakoshi is part of a collective of leading Japanese Ambient music artists featured on the Water Green compilation on the Ryoondo-tea label. His live performance at the party at the famous ancient Honen-in temple in Kyoto in August 2003 was unforgettable.
