My first and maybe last podcast has released on iTunes as the 36th episode of “Minus Connections”. Below is my comments and links for each track.


Hello, I am Itaru Yasuda. I have moved from Tokyo to Berlin last November to work for visual and interactive projects (e.g. enter.m-nus.com) with Rich, Ali and the great Minus team. I have been enjoying it as the most wonderful thing in my life. I am really glad to share my favorite music with you here. To me music is always the best driving force. I hope you enjoy it.


00:00
- 1. Klaus Schulze – Crystal Lake (1977)

Great early German synthesizer music. It does perfectly fit for the gray sky in Berlin.

- 2. Evol – Rave Slime (2010)

Great contemporary Catalan synthesizer music. Perfect title.

- 3. Oni Ayhun – mnml ssgs mx47(2009) + OAR002 (2008)

A sonic epic. Sometimes I feel music is the best way to explain the world.

Superfine real live computer music. Very beautiful.

- 5. Errorsmith – Stiff Neck (2002)

Highly well-organized abnormal sound (It makes me very happy!)

16:30
- 6. KEI-KEN – Katharsis (2008)

DJ Kzt brought this track to me and it quickly became my favorite. Very weird Japanese speech in a good way. To sum up: Everyone needs a medium to express themself and that is music.

19:50
- 7. Ryoji Ikeda – 0111111111 (2001)

A proof that technology is music.

- 8. Pierre-Laurent Aimard – The Art of Fugue, BWV 1080 – later version of the original print edited by Christoph Wolff: 18. Fuga a 3 Soggetti (Contrapunctus 14) (2008)

A proof that music is technology.

30:40
- 9. Evala – Blink (2009)

His way to describe a space with sound is awesome. I would like to recommend you to keep your eyes closed just for a while.

- 10. Holden – Lump (2006)

I really admire his taste. Really nice both as a DJ and a composer.

No matter how many times I listened to, I will never be able to consume this track.

47:00
- 12. Palace Of Marvels – Marcus Schmickler (2010)

I don’t know who else can make such a gorgeous soundscape.

49:18
- 13. Radiohead – Fitter Happier (1997)

I was really into Radiohead as a desperately pessimistic extremely skinny miserable basket case teenager.

51:30
- 14. workhorse avec segment signal – 1103atstarpinescafe (2007)

At university I met even more pessimistic guy than me. He hated everything in the world except music. I quite liked his pessimism and his music. This is an excerpt from his last live set.
