Toshimaru Nakamura - Re-Verbed (No-Input Mixing Board 9) [Room 40 Promo]

To be released on July 6th, 2k18 via the ever active Australian imprint Room 40 is "Re-Verbed (No-Input Mixing Board 9)" by Tokyo-based artist Toshimaru Nakamura, a pioneer and advocate of the instrument named in the albums title. Serving a new eight track, approx. 38 minutes spanning approach to employing the mixing boards internal feedback for sound production and composition we see the Japanese artist meandering through an intersecting set of styles including Noize, Clicks'n'Cuts, Rhythm Industrial, Ambient and Electronica to create distinct, yet not beat bound rhythm signatures whilst using Dub-referencing techniques to emphasize on spatial, atmospheric qualities and overall deepness within single tracks, sculpting tonal events into a timeless, time-dissolving flow that's specifically evident in the beatless reverb efforts of the post-Pole'esque "nimb #53" whilst "nimb #54" weighs in more of a distrupted, grinding and repetetive take on atmospheric distortions whereas "nimb #55" evokes memories of an aesthetic pushed forward by the great, yet defunct Audio.NL label or partly even Raster Noton back in the day. Interesting stuff, this.
