About This Release:
Ryoji Ikeda is Japan's top avant-garde minimalist electronic composer, in the tradition of Alvin Lucier (Crossings on Lovely Music)/The Hafler Trio/Bruce Gilbert/CM von Hausswolff/Panasonic...
Ikeda has an extensive music CV previous releases on compilations including Ash International's 'A Fault in the Nothing' and 'Mesmervariations.' He has also collaborated with luminaries including Derek Jarman. Andrew Lagowski, David Toop & Paul Schutze, to mention but a few. Ikeda has also had a previous album under his own name called '1000 fragments' on CCI Recordings.'
"This album is progressive beat-wise and for it's glitch contributions. Born at the time of the glitch movement, +/- offers an industrial sound with a more defined beats. While nicely layered, the sharpness of the samples make the album feel minimal. The orchestra-esque feel of the "Headphonics" songs layers interweave loosely only to rejoin as soon as the time is right. The melodies are simple yet unique and heavily manipulated with all the fx appropriate from those who pride themselves on the samples they create. The + - tracks are much more heavily concentrated on study and experiment and are very hypnotic."
"A benchmark release in digital minimalism. Has to be heard, totally compulsive and immaculately constructed, pushes the envelope while keeping full control. Essential, and deceptively easy listening."
or as Jim O'Rourke said at the time, "Fucking awesome!"
