Bass – Asahito Nanjo
Guitar – Makoto Kawabata

Black Editions present a reissue of Musica Transonic‘s self-titled release, originally released in 1995. Musica Transonic was comprised of three of the most crucial artists to emerge from the 1990s Japanese underground: Nanjo Asahito of High RiseMakoto Kawabata of Acid Mothers Temple and Tatsuya Yoshida of Ruins. The group’s music was a supercharged combination of complex rhythms, blistering guitar attacks, and enormously deep bass momentum. Pushing the rock power trio to its miasmic, overdriven limits, Musica Transonic’s sound retains the ability to shock even now, 25 years later. 
Produced by – Asahito Nanjo
Originally released on CD by P.S.F. Records, Japan 1995 (PSFD-61)

Patrick Shiroishi LP

Patrick Shiroishi LP Descension – Thin Whrist

Deluxe Embossed Heavy Tip-On Jacket with Spot Colors, Spot UV.
Includes insert and download card.

“A harrowing layered work of solo saxophone and electronics, Descension is at once beautifully elegiac and unflinchingly primal. Patrick Shiroishi is one of the key artists to emerge from the current L.A. free improvisation avant-underground; his first vinyl release is a spiritual journey that reveals his deeply reflective and unique musical vision. Descension is a sonic meditation on the legacy of a dark history and its echoing relevance in the present era.”

Agencement CD Box

Agencement CD Box Viosphere+ Selected Works 1984 – 1991 – Art Into Life 2013

back in stock

Hideaki Shimada who started making art and improvised violin experiments in the late 1970s in Kanazawa. As a continuation of some of these ideas, he started adding tapes, which led to the creation of the Agencement electronic project in 1985. Two LPs were released under that name, then his first CD “Viosphere” in 1991. Art into Life is now reissuing this album, plus three previously unissued tracks from the same period, under the title “Viosphere +”. Of particular interest is the previously unreleased 1988 studio session with Hironari Iwata – from Toukaseibunshi from the same 80s experimental scene. It’s a heavily avant-garde performance for guitar, amplifier and autoharp.

Comes in a box with a 12 page booklet of performance photographs from the period and several 2011 visual works. Limited edition of 200.

Tamio Shiraishi CD Sora

Tamio Shiraishi CD “Sora” Relative Pitch

Tamio Shiraishi was, along with Keiji Haino, a founding member of the Japanese avant garde group Fushitsusha in the 1970s. His involvement with Fushitsusha was however transient and the experience and connections formed through it led him to choose the saxophone as his main instrument. In 1990 Shiraishi moved to New York where he now plays solo material at NYC subway stops and collaborative projects at other venues. His style may be characterized as a microtonal exploration of the altissimo-range, somewhat reminiscent of traditional Japanese Enka music, some odd bird calls sometimes mixed  or cut ups withh some environmental urban sounds.
