About the artists
Tamaru (b.1963), also known as the leader of his band Installing (w/ Tadahiko Yokogawa and Keiichi Sugimoto aka Four Color). He improvises solo with bass guitar always in an on-chair shoe-gazing style, in parallel with producing electro-acoustic works. He has released many discs but Figure is his second solo bass guitar album following Basso Continuo, self-released on his own 1050 label. Figure was recorded in 2007. Tamaru defines this album as the integration of his bass guitar performance for over past 10 years. Improvised Music from Japan publishes Tamaru’s artist bio, discography, and interview.

Yui Onodera (b. 1982) was born and grown up in Iwate but lives and works in Tokyo. Entropy is a reissue of his debut originally released on his own Critical Path label in 2005. In the year 2007 Onodera released three full length albums, a 7 inch vinyl and a 3 inch CDR on all different labels outside Japan. He composed solo works until two years ago when he started working on long distance collaborations respectively with Celer in the US, The Beautiful Schizophonic in Portugal, and Exit in Grey in Russia. An English article about Yui Onodera and an interview by Tobias Fischer were published on the Tokafi webzine.

    WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.

  16. Greetings! I know this is kinda off topic however , I’d figured I’d ask.
    Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest authoring a blog article or vice-versa?
    My site discusses a lot of the same subjects as yours
    and I feel we could greatly benefit from each other. If you are interested feel free to
    send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you!

    Fantastic blog by the way!
