Otomo Yoshihide is one of the countless computer
musician mavericks thriving in the current Japanese electronic music
scene. His 1997 Sound Factory album features some of the most
insane noises ever generated by computer. Sachiko M joins him on
Filament 1 (1998). John Zorn commissioned Cathode on Tzadik
Records (1999), which features ensemble pieces with instrumentalists.
If you want to hear another unbelievable electronic music album on
Tzadik, buy Psycho-Acoustic (this work took literally thousands
of hours to make on a computer). Zornís label has a Japanese series of
albums issued annually. Ikue Mori is one of the other pioneers of
electronic music featured on this series.
