It's not on Bandcamp, at least I don't think so. In addition to that the only online vendor I know to carry the CD is Amazon.co.jp. There are at least a few of the songs on YouTube, however, so I've linked the ones I know below. They aren't necessary my favorites from the album, but oh well. Still, videos two and three are probably among the tracks an average listener would regard among the highlights from the album. "nATALIE" also has an official free download link in the description for an older version of the song (requires a free Piapro account which might be a bit tricky to create unless you use something like Google Chrome's crude translation feature to assist you), along with a link to the album version which to my knowledge isn't a link provided by the artist although I might be wrong.

 

This is probably music that only appeals to a very niche audience but I definitely belong in that niche. smily_headphones1.gif

 

Edit: Also for those expecting drum and bass the first song probably wouldn't fall in that category just for clarification. I almost recommend skipping it if you're only going to give this artist one chance.

Cool, sounds like an interesting course.

I've never thought about comparing Ikeda with Cage or any other heavyweight musical experimentalist before.

Maybe because I came at it from the angle of Detroit techno and Berlin minimal house, and not academia, but it seems reasonable that there should be a cross-over point there somewhere.

You wouldn't happen to know of any public domain literature on this subject you could recommend?

I am thoroughly enjoying this, TJ Elite. It's very textured, which makes them all the more fun to listen to. I would have to say though, I think enjoyed "Ironia" the most out of all three. :)

It's really hard to find something public domain on this subject. Most of what we are studying are from Caleb Kelly's book entitled "SOUND". There is a survey article that demonstrates and slightly compares the two artists here. Cage really gave the finger point in the direction of music/sound appreciation, especially in his piece entitled 4'33". Ikeda paid tribute to that piece with a 16mm film and time code. However, its that very notion that Ikeda's music, very much like the music of Cage, brought you out of the box and gave you a preview of the whole picture (in terms of sound). Just that alone, makes the whole subject so much more fascinating. My apologies for not being able to provide you with more articles on the subject. I will keep on the lookout for more though.


 

Was in my YouTube feed, so I checked it out. Been listening to it for about five times in row now.

HD Tracks 24/96.  The first Van Halen album released to be bought as a single album that was not bundled with the other original five Van Halen gems.  I have the CD version as well and this is seriously better.

New York City 

 
 The Peter Malick Group
 featuring Norah Jones

 

 

The story goes that, in 2000, while pianist/vocalist Norah Jones was playing regularly at the Living Room in New York's Lower East Side and well before she earned eight Grammys, she received an invitation to sing some blues with guitarist Peter Malick and his band. Reluctantly, Jones admitted to a paucity of blues-singing experience. Thankfully, Malick was persistent. Listening to the rootsy, organic beauty evidenced on New York City, you'd never know Jones hadn't ever sung the blues.

Inspired by the classic work of artists such as Ray Charles and Billie HolidayNew York City is a kind of singer/songwriter blues album featuring Jones' particularly haunting vocal style. It's more mainstream than Come Away With Me, but fans of that album should cotton easily to Jones' work here.

 

Conceptualized around the post-9/11 title track, most of Malick's songs are contemporary blues reminiscent of the work of Bonnie Raitt and Eric Clapton. Notably, "Strange Transmissions," a melancholy and atmospheric profession of a love that just can't be denied, showcases Jones as mellow blues diva, while "Heart of Mine" finds the pianist's breathy style perfectly suited to the Bob Dylannugget. As for leader Malick, he takes the vocal duties on "Things You Don't Have to Do" and graces most of the tracks with his thoughtful and tempered guitar sound.

I enjoy Arkhē so much as an album (without question one of the best released in 2012 for me) that it's odd for me to even think about its songs individually; together they are so much more than just their sum. I don't really have any favorites on the album, but somehow I feel that the three songs I linked happen to be among some of my least favorite tracks on the album. I'm by no means saying they are bad, on the contrary, they are all really good songs, and that just speaks for the overall quality of the album.

 

I actually found a couple more songs on YouTube so here they are. Sorry, the first video has quite poor sound quality. To compensate for that Absolunote has a stunning 720p PV and the song itself is heavenly.

 

Enjoy. : )

 

 

 

ASTER is… magical.

 


 

About to put on the new two-track EP from Kyohei Akagawa also featuring a remix by KIWAMU. Oh how I've waited for this. Dunno if it's good, but I certainly hope so. Otographic has never let me down so far.

I'll second that.
