Optical 8 – “Bug”

Posted in Uncategorized by Mogo on July 24, 2007

though intermittently available for purchase here, this release doesn’t seem to garner much attention these days. a shame really. to make a long story short, if you can track down a copy of the CD you’ll probably want to make room for it in between Happy Family and Omoide Hatoba… even that isn’t quite right, but it’s as close as I’m gonna get in my present state of fatigue – to which I might add, this very album is presently about the only thing keeping me from succumbing.

EDIT: due to the comment that the original link wasn’t working, I’ve re-upped this one.

I.S.O. – “Gravity Clock”

Posted in Uncategorized by Mogo on July 24, 2007

after searching for what seemed like forever, I finally managed to lay my ears on this –  another Otomo-related project – thanks to a kind soul who pointed me to it while I was seeking. this, in short, feels like what Filament should have aspired to be. still very experimental and quite minimal at times, but this time there’s some musicality to the whole thing and it becomes an entirely different (and better, IMO) experience for that fact. I’m not doing this much justice considering how much I really like it, so maybe it’s best to hear for yourself.

Filament – 1

Posted in Uncategorized by Mogo on July 24, 2007

beginning a trio of Otomo Yoshihide-related posts today with this, my least favorite of the bunch. to be honest, this will probably be one of the few things I post that I don’t care for all that much. I’ve certainly heard worse (I did spend some time involved in mid-90s cassette culture, after all) but this is by far blown away by the other two related projects I’m posting today. minimal sort of noise, maybe experimental that often has absolutely nothing going on at all… well, I’ll leave it to you to find some intellectual justification for it, if you’re so inclined…
