From Edition RZ:
SUZUKI, AKIO: Na-Gi 1997 CD (RZ 10005CD)
1997 release. A CD of minimalist environmental sounds by this Japanese sound-artist, previously known for his fabulous Soundsphere CD on the Dutch Het Apollohuis label. “This music was recorded in Takano, Tango-cho, the northern-most coast of Kyoto, where I live. The bay surrounded by volcanic rock caves is the place where the mighty sounds of waves of the open sea have their muffled echo. Seawater flows into the hollows in the rock again and again like breathing in and breathing out. Spring water constantly drips in the cave, and now and then the wind from the meadow above the chasm brings the sounds of the crickets…the sound spaces of the coast of Takano. A site of a new encounter with the rhythm of the sounds of the sea.”

2007 release. Subtitled: Live Elektronische Kompositionen 1993-2005. Performers: Ensemble Mosaik, Prometeo String Quartet, Natalia Pschenitschnikova. Agostino Di Scipio teaches his sounds to listen to themselves. The digital sound processing algorithms associated with the pieces listen to their own results, and then modify themselves accordingly, during the course of the piece. Through complicated cybernetic procedures inside the black box the software adjusts to the heard in order to create the unheard.
