Sugai Ken
てれんてくだ tele-n-tech-da

Tinkerer of sound first and designer of it second, Sugai Ken recently wowed us with his broken clockwork jams over on RVNG Intl. He here returns for a "radio play" based on the Japanese movement Mingei, further suggesting an almost folk art approach to his sound effect ambience. Sporadic and serendipitous, the record speaks to Sugai Ken's brilliant and uncompromising playfulness.

Sugai Ken
On The Quakefish

On the Quakefish is the debut vinyl release from Japanese eccentric Sugai Ken and it’s both bizarre and captivating. Field recordings of Japan’s bustling nightlife compete with spacious synths and wacky vocals to create an ambient music that keeps shifting into new shapes and forms. This is a totally unpredictable electronic collage.

Sugai Ken

With needlepoint precision and a crystal clear veneer, Sugai Ken brings his dynamic yet delicate tapestries of artificial and organic sound to Rvng Intl. His previous outings on EM Records and Lullabies For Insomniacs have helped shine a light on the illustrious sound design feats the Kanagawa, Japan-based artist is capable of. This album builds on that reputation with some startling excursions into audio collage.
