Small Cruel Party / Kiyoshi Mizutani - Split
Flenix (FLR04) 2000
"Small Cruel Party's work is focused on the inherent mysterious and beautiful quality of sound itself, with the emphasis on noninstrumental sound sources, the source itself not being readily apparent. Work generally involves manipulation of physical objects in acoustic space and a great deal of concentrated activity. Even in pieces involving dense sound at high volume the resultant effect is one of intense calm."
Kiyoshi Mizutani - folk instruments (types of rattles) and sampled materials:
1. Instruments made of animal's claws and human voices.
2. Instruments made of nuts and the wave.
3. Belt of nuts and electric saw.
4. Maracas made of ceramic and boards.
