«Japanese musician Naoto Taguchi comes back to test tube for another release in his 'Untitled fragments' series. Not surprisingly, 'Untitled 8 fragments ordinaries sound materials' is the logical followup of the tube150 release we published more than two years ago.

Once again, expect more subtle field recordings mixed with gentle and apparently scattered electronic micro-sounds, in what is becoming Naoto's trademark aesthetics. Somehow, it's becoming clear to me that there's a distinctive 'Japanese electronica' feel about his music, some kind of minimalist music-box-like electronica.
Naoto's friend and artist Shigehiro is also once again responsible for the excellent artwork for the release. Enjoy!»

«El músico japonés Noato Taguchi vuelve a Test Tube dos años después, con la continuación del magistral “Untitled 9 fragments ordinaries sound materials” [tube159]. Grabaciones de campo y microsonidos se funden y mezclan de una forma totalmente natural, dando lugar a una musicalidad cristalina y sutil, que puede recordar a una caja de música. Este artista posee un lenguaje propio y muy personal, aunque dentro de una línea minimalista general que parece seguir la música electrónica japonesa. Muy recomendable.»
