Takashi Ueno is a 12 string/Moog ring modulator abstracta-tron from the Takoma school of guitar manipulation. This involves dissolving established theories about melody and noteage and playing all the outsider notes in a seemingly slippery & random fashion to create a new music, summat what Uncle John Fahey and other like-minded progressive headz have explored in the not-too-distant past. I know this cos I've done my research, rather than actually being fully attracted to this form of sonic mischief. Big Aussie beard-magnet label Room40 have released this lavishly housed CD 'Sui-Gin' and I've picked the perfect time to sling it on my hotwired CD assessing mothership IE: midnight with a mild breeze fluttering into my room. It all sounds like chiming, discordant chinese water music made by a malfunctioning robot to me but is imbued with charm & grace. I see it as soothing ambient music for distant satellites, clangers in space colliding into each other giving off chinging off-notes in a tin pot galaxy. That's my anti-Wire lowbrow review for people who like interesting music but can't stand overblown pretentious waffle ;0]
