A new CD from CHIHEI HATAKEYAMA, a member of Tokyo computer-oriented electroacoustic trio OPITOPE and improvisation group COPA DEL PAPA. Minima Moralia is a product of the careful placement of sound afforded by computer programming combined with the timbres of live performance. Concentrating on the textures of sound, Hatakeyama consciously avoids the use of electronic sounds; instead using sound fragments made by guitars and vibraphone he played himself. The fragments were processed and reprocessed in live performances on laptop, and the contention between the analog sound sources, digital processing and the musician's choices are what give the album its positive, warm and physical presence. Features contributions from MASAHIR KOBAYASHI (violin) and TOMOYOSHI DATE (sound materials).
