CONTROL VALVE #023 IS NOW READY FOR DOWNLOADING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
ARTIST: Aikichi Kuboyama
bio: “The noise started at December 2009. Then, in 2010, I released a demo called "Two Untitled Tracks", this demo was released through Datahex Records. My first "real" album was, at first, a self-released cassette limited to 15 copies, but it's available through FFM Records, a now extinct netlabel for obscure music. 2011 started with an EP called "Conflict", presenting my best noise so far...”
proccess: “The equipment is cheap: lots of free software, casio, amp, mic and some funny things to bang on. I start with a wall and add lots of effects, in order to create a noise mess. But, I change my process very often, and I might just record something directly from keyboard or do the whole thing digitally. I like to call myself a live producer, because after getting all the sounds ready, I improvise the structures and watch how two sounds react together. To be honest, that's what makes it interesting.”
-3 tracks of harsh, unrelenting, textural dynamics from Japan
