Tomonari Nozaki is an emerging producer from Tokyo. He originally operated in the minimal techno scene in Japan where his focus was very much on the abstract. He experimented further which led to his sound evolving into the more lush and compositional widescreen analogue soundscapes he now creates. Devastating and emotive are two words that come to mind.
Tomo's technique uses a mix of reel to reel tape edits, analogue synths and a whole host of old outboard. After listening it is obvious that Tomos current work wasn't produced on a computer. A perceptive ear as always with Forwind material is mandatory.
He has been previously released under his UNKNOWNjp alias on the Slovakian Label Soun Records. The next installment in his fast maturing sound will be heard when he makes his physical release debut on forwind in early 2013.
