Kiyoshi Mizutani: feedback
Kiyoharu Kuwayama: handmade electronics, contact mic & mix

Track listing: Interlude 1 - 9
 
and/OAR (via either/OAR) is very pleased to present what is without a 
doubt among the very best of both artist's electronic-based work. 
Throughout much of this highly charged release, brooding clouds of 
swarming tones and drones envelope the listener, either inducing a 
hypnotic trance or a deep contemplative listening state.
 
This work is the result of a mail exchange. At first, Kiyoshi created the 
feedback sound in the studio using a suspended microphone, mixer and 
some effects. Sometimes drum sticks, steel and wooden chair were used 
to influence the sound. Kiyoshi's recorded sound was sent to Kiyoharu who 
then processed the materials and edited and mixed the sound with his 
own materials.
 
Kiyoshi Mizutani started his sound career with the noise project Merzbow 
until the late 1980s, After leaving Merzbow, Kiyoshi started releasing solo 
work under his own name - gradually shifting away from noise to mostly 
recording and releasing straight environmental sound documents. Apart 
from Kiyoharu Kuwayama and Masami Akita (Merzbow), Kiyoshi has also 
collaborated with Daniel Menche and Hideaki Shimada.
 
Kiyoharu Kuwayama (aka Lethe) is known for creating and recording work 
in highly resonant spaces or charged atmospheres (abandoned 
warehouses, Shinto temples, etc). Kiyoharu is also known for his 
involvement with the duo Kuwayama - Kijima (Kiyoharu Kuwayama: cello, 
and Rina Kijima: violin) who are formidable players, so well attuned to 
each other that their improvisations cannot be distinguished from highly 
complex compositions. With a particular interest in ambient sound and 
locations that inspire improvisation, they take advantage of the natural 
reverb of each location (under a bridge at night, an abandoned 
warehouse), and even change their position while playing to create 
beautiful and charged performances.
