MR. YAKAMOTO "NEW AGE HOME RECORDINGS" (CDr)
The 10th installment in the series of Erikoisdance CDRs, now in its 4th year, celebrates the tradition and creative technological approach of New Age Synthesizer Music.
Marrying the rugged, unrefined aesthetics of home studio production
with the creative capacity of equipment such as the Emax II —descendant of the groundbreaking Emulators: the flagships of high-end sampling technology manufactured by Emu Systems in the 80s, used to their full spectrum by the likes of Software and Kitaro — Mr. Yakamoto conjures up a vibrant sonic palette of melancholic beauty, harmony and the unexpected.
Compositional structures combine organic, at times seemingly random, freeform patterns with exact mathematics and creative automation —
reflecting the "nature meets art meets science" thinking of the
masters of yesterdays New Age. Unlike his predecessors Yamamoto
emphasizes the practical realization of Chaos Theory (a reoccuring
conceptual level ingredient of earlier New Age). He brings the result to the audible forefront, built on a solid foundation of mandatory lush strings and bell sounds, thus updating both sound and philosophy to fulfill the requirements of the new millennium.
