8/10 Brett Staff review, 16 December 2010

Apparently Taishi Kamiya makes his improvised droney ambient meat by slaughtering saxophone cattle with a laptop. Which is a pretty novel approach in the field, I reckon. In the press release Ian Hawgood mentions his worries over the choice of instrument - having 'associated it with eighties sex scenes in movies or something like that' - but upon listening to his work it's pretty clear that it couldn't really be any further from that particular preconception if it tried, unless I've not seen the right eighties sex scenes of course: ones that unfold completely elegantly, layering up their feeling so subtly that you barely even notice and slowly, skillfully drawing you into right into their atmospheric space. Although I guess you might be able to apply all of that to Kyle Reese knocking off Sarah Connor in Terminator. The more overtly electronic-sounding sections are really reminding me of some of Alva Noto's ambient stuff, either alone or in collaboration with Ryuichi Sakamoto. Which can certainly be no bad thing at all.
