ATSUSHI TOMINAGA

056 Sound & Phenomena – Conceptual Works

(Meeuw Muzak - MM010) 7-inch $8.00

Consistent with documents of electromagnetic induction, this “glitch classic” from 1999 captures one of the more elusive type of field recordings, The Sounds of Microwave Oven Interiors. Tominaga is interested in a symmetrical input-output system, where the electromagnetic wave represents imaginary speakers and ornamental devices that generate life. Acoustic properties are revealed slowly (comparable to the faint electronic noise of broadcast radio), a metaphor for the landscape of modern life. Clear vinyl, stencil-printed sleeve. Edition of 200.
