Dani - 2014-07-01 18:15:53I just purchased some albums by an electronic artist based in Tokyo that have deeply inspired me. The artist is Ametsub, and his albums are "All Is Silence" and "The Nothings of The North". I discovered him while browsing the website of an old label which first aired some extremely notable glitch artists, the label "Mille Plateaux". By the way, another amazing label is "Raster-Noton" which is run by Carsten Nicolai (aka Alva Noto) and Ryoji Ikeda, who are two of the top electronic composers in the world. I first heard Ametsub's track 'Repeatedly' and was in awe of the subtle harmony that was decorated with sparse yet moving glitch textures. The effect of the song was coma inducing, and I felt extreme joy and calmness in hearing those delicate sounds, so carefully woven into a moving composition. Both of his albums are moving and majestic. To me, they display incredible taste and design with electronic materials. It is no wonder that Ametsub is receiving recognition from the likes of Ryuichi Sakamoto and Alva Noto, as well as international acclaim.
I highly recommend listening to Ametsub's music.
