ASUNA & Jan Jelinek
Signals Bulletin

Jan Jelinek, meet ASUNA. Mr ASUNA here plays organ in a very deliberate way, sustaining long tones through the use of sticky tape. Jelinek meets these drone tone clusters with synthesiser and loops (of course!) of field recordings, and the whole thing adds up to a gorgeous textural and quasi-rhythmical experience. Signals Bulletin is released by Faitiche.

Asuna & Opitope
The Crepuscular Grove

Binks and bonks, bleeps and bloops, bangs and whirrs - you'll find them all here on the second collaborative album between Japanese ambientsters Asuna and Opitope. Soundscapes unfurl tenderly across the album’s six sprawling tracks, with micro-loops and plumes of analog interference offset by a good deal of ivory tinkling and gentle guitar plucking.

ASUNA + Stijn Hüwels + Dudal + James Murray + Hybernation

Here is a memento of sorts from the last London show put on by House Normal: the title 100616 refers to the date. Each artist performing contributed some exclusive material, so there is never-before-heard stuff from Stijn Hüwels, James Murray, Dudal, Hybernation and ASUNA, all presented on CDr in a nice little card package.

Tide Ripples

Delicate loveliness from ASUNA, an artist who believes in keeping it simple. Where previously he has tended towards expanses of minimal drone, here he mostly plays minimal melodic guitar, assisted by the perfectly-fitting vocals of Rima Kato. A gorgeous and understated set, and apparently one of the Home Normal label boss’s favourites ever. 500 CD copies out there.
