One of, if not the most, adventurous of sound creators within the Tokyo music scene since the mid-eighties is Otomo Yoshihide, turntable and guitar player. From a melting and forging process of sound, he weaves entirely new worlds of explosive possibility from this mixture upon which he continues to expand.
Otomo has explored the nature of sound in many different ways during his career. Over the last few years, Otomo has become increasingly interested in minimal wave-based electronics, as heard in his Filament and I.S.O projects.
