Title: Chain [RE] Action
Format: CD
Label: Blossoming Noise
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"Sound Designer (as he likes to be described) Akifumi Nakajimas Aube project distances itself from the work of other Japanese noise musicians by adopting a fiercely Ambient approach into his work. Water going down a plug hole, the hum of lamps heating up and the sounds of his own body have dominated previous Aube releases, but for this recording (as its title implies) Nakajima uses chains as his main sound source to create five textural pieces that range from the looping metallic shrill of "The Metal Cicada" to the minimalistic sonar pulsation of "Vibrate Quietly", which sounds like it was recorded in a bathysphere at the bottom of the ocean. This combination of harsh and gentle sounds sets the tone for the entire album, which culminates in "Spasmodic Repetition", a colossal ringing electronic drone piece that incorporates the central theme of chains being manipulated to produce loop patterns of clang and glitch." - The Wire Magazine

Title: Pole Nord
Format: 3" CDR
Label: Taalem
Country: France
Price: $7.00
"composed, recorded & mixed by akifumi nakajima at studio MECCA kyoto japan using only feedbacks. Does Aube really need an introduction ? After more than 160 releases (!) in fourteen years, I guess he doesnt. For this 3"cd-r, Akifumi Nakajima has, as usual, used a single source to create his music ; this time feedback. You could then imagine the tracks to be noisy as hell. Thankfully theyre not. Aube knows perfectly how to mix noise and ambient music. So the result is noisy, yes, but listenable ; ambient, too, but not boring. A great work, as usual should I say." - Taalem.
