Live at Specka
Recorded at Specka in Madrid Spain
Table tennis balls, kalimbas, shakers, and insects all collide in Yosi Horikawa’s electronic concoctions. Live in Madrid during the Academy.
Chiba-based sound designer _(artist-name)Yosi Horikawa_ is a man of miniatures. Table tennis balls, kalimbas, shakers, and insects all collide in his electronic concoctions, and it’s the small details that make his music so unique. As a formally trained sound designer and soundtrack artist, he shows a deft hand in combining field-recorded sounds into something musical, often resembling a shadowy version of hip hop or musique concrète. His releases on Eklektik Records, Rhythm Incursions, and London blogger Laurent Fintoni’s highly regarded _(album-title)Nihon Kizuna_ compilation, demonstrate Horikawa’s knack for combining the everyday sounds of life into something alluding to the infinite expanses that we live in.
