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..

He says he is Influenced by Eno, Budd and God. We have some unsolved issues with blind God believers, but it’s a long and tedious battle, and this is definitely not the time or place to discuss it. There were times we thought Eno was nearly God, but when he started interfering with earthly matters he knows nothing about, we understood he is as limited as any other human we know. There is no doubt Andrew G. Clark is as talented musically as he is as a visual artist. The roots of his music lie deep in Eighties synth pop. It might sound a little poppy for some of you, but we enjoyed listening to this musical project of his, ‘Future trends’, on this springy Saturday afternoon.
