Electroacoustic & Noise from Osaka

Source: Bandcamp Daily.

This past May, Kazuo Uehara, a musician from Osaka, passed away. Uehara’s name may ring a bell for enthusiasts of Hiroshi Yoshimura, whose environmental compositions have proved a test case for subtle music that, when rediscovered and spread online, can circumvent barriers of generation and taste. The two artists worked closely together: Yoshimura’s acclaimed 1986 album GREEN was not only produced by Uehara, it was also released by his label AIR Records Inc. For a time, Uehara traveled and played around the world, performing at the Kitchen in New York and making contact with the giants of musique concrète in Paris.
