about

Never one to adopt normalcy, Katsunori has proved once again why his music stands alone in the contemporary scene. It is both adaptive of the hyper-modern post-club trends for higher BPM, off-kilter sound design and abrasive techno composition and reflective of traditional music, improvisation and the wide classical traditions of Europe, Africa and Asia.

On "An Enlightenment Manual..." an ear for traditional Japanese melody and tuning compliment an array of technically brilliant drum programming ("Frozen Dirt Trace" - "Strange Hell") or are smeared out into new-world drone forms and exotic cloud formations ("Camellia Blossom" - "Underwent A Pronounced Shift...").
