"Asmus + Kouhei by Y-Ton-G"
Asmus Tietchens is renowned as the one of most ingenious german composers in electronic music underground. His first attempts with tape music started in mid 60s, but in 1971 he bought a synthesizer and since then, constantly explores the advantages of electronic sound, never stopping or looking back. On the 70/80s edge, his music was somehow like weird electro-pop, and then changed to more obscure post-industrial sounding, experiments with classical forms and abstract structures with endless recycling. Many albums and collaborations were released, in various editions. Inspiring next generations of musicians, Tietchens never was associated with any trends, shared philosophical concepts or involved in any movements. His albums are just reflecting the atmosphere of studiowork, the appearance of pure musical ideas in the real time frame. "My music is composed of aesthetic and extraordinary events which make statements for themselves, but there is absolutely no message. For myself the music most definitely has a meaning. I am an adventurer in the studio... my aim is to discover the white dots on the landscape of sound, territories where no others have traveled." (Unsound, 1987) Kouhei Matsunaga grew up In Osaka, Japan, listening to hardcore techno and rap music. In the mid 90s, Kouhei met Masami Akita (Merzbow) in Kyoto, and they started working on a few projects. 1998 also saw the release of Kouhei's first album “Upside down”, which included appearances of Masonna, Natiho Toyota, and Merzbow. Since then, he released a number of collaborative and split albums with Merzbow, Niko Scorpio, John Watermann, Anla Courtis, Rudolf Eb.er, Lasse Marhaug, Ralf Wehowski etc. He was touring Europe and USA with Carlos Giffoni, Zbigniew Karkowski and John Duncan. He is also involved in Flying Swimming label and many other ongoing projects. Wolfgang Neven is the german musician, active since 1981 and better known later as Y-Ton-G. He was involved in duo Para-Noise-Terminal, but since 1994 started working solo and also organized the yearly workshop and festival Noise Factory making the doorway for many new german underground projects. His music is described as sound-alchemy: using a lot of metals, objects, field recordings and electronic gear, he retired himself from the material music sources like rhythm and melody, just concentrated on noise for exploration of human soul and personality. Released some albums on Raum 312 and Stein Sein Productions, he continues to present new works with his own Terminal-Tape-Prod. imprint. "YAK" is the collaborative effort, all tracks were recorded in different combinations, as stated in the track titles. Asmus Tietchens appears as project director, conducted the similar actions in the past with such respective artists as David Lee Myers (Arcane Device), Dirk Serries (Vidna Obmana) and Phillip B. Klingler (PBK). Concrete sounds and abstract constructions, endlessly recycled and digitally treated - the new album by Asmus Tietchens, Kouhei Matsunaga and Y-Ton-G is bearing the idea of total remix work. Following the great tradition of mail-collaborations, this german-japanese trio recorded the new series of experimental music studies.

THEODOR BASTARD. OIKOUMENE - Theo Records, 2012
New album of Theodor Bastard. The title refers to an ancient Greek notion, designating the inhabited or "civilized" sections of our planet, in other words those where mankind has left its mark - for better or worse. That global sweep is certainly echoed in the list of contributors, since our Russian artists are joined here by representatives of British, Zulu, Indian, and French-African traditions. Consequently, the list of instruments employed - and their home nations - is even longer. >>
COH. IIRON - Editions Mego (Austria), 2011
Coming 11 years after IRON, which also tackled the sound of rock with alarming results, the new album features not only recent guitar tracks recorded at Music Research Centre at York University, but also recordings made during Soviet era Russia, which refer to Pavlov's underground music activities in the early 80-ies. IIRON is a powerful, well executed electronic rock record, with just a dash a humour to keep it from becoming pompous, as so much of that kind of music can be sometimes. >>
