Toshimaru Nakamura - Dance Music [Bottrop- Boy - 2008]

Don’t be fooled or put off by the title this has nothing to do with what you’d usually associate with dance music there’s no beats, dramatic sonic movements or any real melody or structure here. The two long tracks here are built around piercing and persistent feedback drones and mimlistic noise texturing and electronic tones.

The two pieces were apparently performed over a dance piece in Tokyo in 2005, quite what the dancers did to this is not detailed but I suspect it as either very slow, if any movement at tall. As much of  these two tracks running time concentrates on mess with your head, balance and reality in quite effective manner. Both tracks knock on past the 20 minute mark and are built around slowly shifting and building electronic tones that Nakamura manipulates in a wonderfully drilling, painful and 'set your teeth on edge' manner. Going from high pitched whistling and perching, to sometime deeper and static linked tones, Nakamura really gets in your head subtle at first then more painfully and balance messing manner. I  don’t advise walking around or travelling on any kind of transport with this on, because if your walking it’s likely to well and truly put you off balance and if on transport I would'nt  be surprised if you felt physically sick or very dizzy.

A real electro head-fuck of the highest order that to start with seems quite harmless, but let it bour and pierce deep into your head over it’s near on 50 minute playtime and I grantee if will throw you off track and possible even off your feet.
