Sunao Inami - How Bow2
Title: How Bow2
Artist: Sunao Inami
Release: March 2008
This is a special album! How Bow2 is the consequent conceptual continuation of Sunao Inami’s “How Bow” that was released in 2003. But as I said conceptual! The sound changed totally and reflects a dark and scaring atmosphere and plays with the imaginativeness of its listener. With each tone you fall deeper and deeper into a dark ambient that fascinates the listener with it’s never heard before sounds. But don’t get me wrong, this is definitely not the try to build a kind of acoustic ghost train. This is a genius composition without beats, the beat is your heartbeat, and the field recordings who carry the self oscillating atmosphere are your connection to the world outside. The sounds and the atmosphere are getting closely with each second, but the genius composer leaves the listener enough space to breathe! This deep experimental album is a must have for lovers of dark ambient and Industrial sounds, but its also a chance for people who aren’t into this kind of music to become witness of an outstanding sound theatre with atmosphere and “life”. How Bow2 is a dark experimental film that gives the power to the listener to decide in which direction the story goes. A musical and creative masterwork... and darker than the darkest place on earth! Great one...
The concept of HOW-BOW is newer technology experimentation or deep electro-acoustic instrumentation. "HOW-BOW" was released by C.U.E. records on 2003 and it hard to find ltd. CDR release. (but it available on iTunes store now) after 5 years, "HOW-BOW 2" is comes. But the sound character is totally different. "HOW-BOW" was glitch and click based IDM, "HOW-BOW 2" is drone,dark ambient and early 80s industrial experimentation with current DSP based sound treatments. (for example,GRM tools,Eventide,Sound Toys special complicated effects) almost sounds generated from field recordings, but sound character is cyber industrial tastes with organic dark ambient soundscapes. This CD recommended for dark ambient noise fans and classical industrial music fans. also, itˇÕs very good reference for sound design of computer based alchemists. and if you have "HOW-BOW", please play together "HOW-BOW" and "HOW-BOW 2". then you will get another electro-acoustic soundscapes.
