Special exclusive SOB show with Teruyuki Nobuchika

May 28th, 2012

..”You wont find one unnecessary note while listening to the outstanding & gentle music of composer/ pianist/ musician Teruyuki Nobuchika. Its much more than the skill of music play, or the technical or theoretical knowledge. Its bigger than how good a composer or a musician you are. It’s all about absorbing and implementing. Or as some would describe this; Vanity.

TN inspires me. You could tell by listening to his music that he is implementing all those principles others wont absorb in a lifetime. It seems like each and every note is being cradled and nursed like a first born, and the same attention is directed towards (as I often describe it) the silent notes, the ones that are not being played.

That’s why I have chosen to dedicate a whole show to Teruyuki Nobuchika’s wonderful music.

The show will be aired on Wednesday, May 30th 21:00 PM Eastern Time, and then again on Thursday May 31st at the same time. Hope you’ll attend and more important, appreciate it as much as we do.

Teruyuki Nobuchika special

May 20th, 2012

For a long time I had the impression that Japanese art is rather technical, almost too precise and very detailed and it comes on their art’s feel account. Or at least I have thought so till I met a Japanese painter that used to be my landlord and witnessed a different way of thinking and approach to art, and later on met few great musicians, amongst musician extraordinaire Hahn Rowe, and most recently was exposed to Teruyuki Nobuchika’s minimalistic gorgeous piano music (Satie, Budd..) and realized I was quite wrong. Maybe part of the reason I was mistaken was that there is something constrained about their art, and hidden as it quite often occurs in a very private, kept to itself secretive culture and society, that doesn’t open up to strangers too easily. I am about to broadcast a show on the SOB platform dedicated to the wonderful music of Teruyuki. You could find out bio details HERE. Watch out for broadcast details on our Lofiles platform and the SOB one real soon..

May 12th, 2012

SOB stands for ‘Sound Of A Bitch’and is a new extension of The Lofiles org platform. We have decided, after 4 years of fruitful blogging, to expose the artists we believe in to a wider crowd, and to try to run this web station in a unlimited fashion as possible. We are really open to suggestions, recommendations, if there is an interesting artist you might think of that fits the Lofiles bill, Lofi, Experimental, Musical, Minimalistic, Uncompromising, etc, let us know. In the meantime, visit us HERE

This is a multimedia project the Tel Aviv Museum has ordered from me years ago, the theme was Mahler’s 5th, so I had put together these 3 pieces, 2 of which you could listen to here, titled it Mahleria, limited myself to using reel to reel tape loops, and fucked around with those. This is the result; Mahleria 1 and 3.

LOFILES 2011′S SIXTYNINE

December 22nd, 2011

This collection of songs has been curated out of the 300 artists and tracks we have covered throughout the year. This has been more or less my iPod’s most abused playlist, and the magical number that we have come up with, are those songs that have accompanied us for the longest time. Those of you that will dig deeper, will realize that our heart belongs to lofi minimalistic bedroom music and we are always on the search for musicians that succeed in making inspiring music within the limitations of their homes or bedroom and despite of the fact they had no budget . SONG ORDER IS PRETTY MUCH MEANINGLESS, allthough we have placed the artists you are most likely to know at the top spots.

We wish you a Merry Christmas, a Happy Chanukah, a Joyous Kwanzaa, and a Happy New Year…and we hope next year will be as inspiring and rewarding as this one.

On the Goldmund, Hauschka and Olafur’s tip this is Japanese film composer Teruyuki Nobuchika with a  minimalistic classical film music piece perfect for the time and temperature. Teruyuki is a gifted musician exhibiting craftsmanship in scoring and composing . His most recognized works as a film composer includes the soundtrack of “Vacation (Kyuka)” (07) directed by Hajime Kadoi, Fuji TV drama series “School!!” (11), and Fuji TV drama series “Natsu no Koi wa Nijiiro ni Kagayaku” (10).

Un chanson si vieille

October 29th, 2011

I have just read a review about the 2011 Neon Mashmallow and remembered that Rhys Chatam was headlining on the 16th. I have been a devoted fan for decades now and had to share with you a track he has released on 9/11.
