The concept of HOW-BOW is newer technology experimentation or deep electro-acoustic instrumentation.
"HOW-BOW" was released by C.U.E. records on 2003 and it hard to find ltd. CDR release. (but it available on iTunes store now)
after 5 years, "HOW-BOW 2" comes.but sound character is totally different.
"HOW-BOW" was glitch and click based IDM, "HOW-BOW 2" is drone,dark ambient and early 80s industrial experimentation with current DSP based sound treatments.
(for example,GRM tools,Eventide,Sound Toys special complicated effects)
almost sounds generated from field recordings, but sound character is cyber industrial tastes with organic dark ambient soundscapes.

This CD recommended for dark ambient noise fans and classical industrial music fans.
also, it's very good reference for sound design of computer based alchemists.
and if you have "HOW-BOW", please play together "HOW-BOW" and "HOW-BOW2".
then you will get another electro-acoustic soundscapes.

This is Sunao Inami's 4th full solo album comes from his own label,electr-ohm.
It has live recorded at his EU tour on March 2006.
IDM,break beat,abstract rhythmic noise or dark electro music had improvised by live performance.
His live performance is more aggressive than his studio recordings,it are heavy complicated rhythmic beats,but It is not violent at all, and it is IDM side with high knowledge of real time sound processing.
and also his all sounds generated by NI Reaktor and his vintage analog synths.
Sunao used Reaktor 5 and Live 5 on Powerbook G4.

Kultur Terrorismus (de)

A Compilation album of International Mailing List Community,it called Looper's Delight. Volume 3 is release 7 years after Volume 2 was released...
17 international looping artists joined, Ambient,Experimental,Minimal,Drone,Improvised,Electro-Acoustic etc.
More details(artists bio,photo etc.)available,Click Here.

Looper's Delight is a cultural and informational resource for musicians creating with audio loops of every sort. Loop based music essentially involves the repetition of audio samples, or loops. From that basic premise looping moves off in numerous directions, encompassing a wide range of techniques for building, manipulating, and using loops. The technique crosses many musical boundaries and appears in a wide range of musical styles and genres.

Organized by Sunao Inami (CAVE Studio/electr-ohm/C.U.E.)

Special Thanks to Kim Flint (Looper's Delight)

The music made by improvisation sound sketch and cut up,after that editing and constituting that it same method of his album "DELAYED", but a greatly different matter from before is the following,the multiple use of the irregular beats by the samples chopped up by filtering and Granular synthesis especially with a complicated thing characteristic this time.
The sounds influence from IDM and glitch or electronica stuff of these days, and also German electronics or experimental of the 70s and the early '80s industrial music.
Sunao used NI Reaktor 4,Absynth,Ableton Live4, Waldorf synthesizers mainly.

[Review on Connexionbizarre]
"An Impulse of Acoustic" spans realms from IDM to ambient, crunchy glitches to delicate drones. Japanese synthesizer guru Sunao Inami modestly understates the album's title, as he embarks not on a mere impulse, but on a lengthy voyage of hypnotic proportions.

"DELAYED" by Sunao Inami is the latest in a strong line of releases on his own electr-ohm label, established about 3 years ago.
Sunao Inami's music's main strength lies in repetition, but where the "poison" lies is different every time: electronics, glitch, techno, noise, ambient; the result of recent years of progression, digression and collaboration from which he's gained impetus, irritation and motivation. By soaking up these sensations, he has arrived at his most recent sound.
Inami embraces the thrill of improvisation on the PowerbookG4 and the feeling of tension and composition from the newest DSP recording methods and any and every editing process.
For "Delayed" he used a Waldorf synth for hardware, and mainly Reaktor4, Live, Spark, Logic6 and Protools for software. Otherwise spoons and other kitchen utensils.
Future plans include collaborations with American and European musicians, who have previously contributed audio fragments to Inami's many other projects via his busy ftp server.

[Review on Connexionbizarre]
Sunao Inami is bordering on genius. I hadn't actually heard of him before listening to this CD but a friend said to me "He's similar to Mimetic. You'll love his stuff". There are similarities certainly, but there is something altogether a little more sinister here.

A nice 3-way split for these Japanese laptoppers, featuring different souls and approaches to MAX/MSP and DSP sound manipulation. Masayuki Akamatsu opens with an exhilarating rhythm ("foxtrot"), like Philip Jeck gone digital, then switches to elegiac drones ("slowtransition"), menacing electroacoustic unrest ("metastable"), sinewaves and scattered voices ("halfhalt"), and more Jeck-ian crunches and iterations ("briskwalk"). Kazuya Ishigami (also in Daruin, Billy?, Clock Rock Localocks, and owner of Neus318/C.U.E. Records) offers a minimal droning piece ("for Sir Dhomont"), one of quiet minimal loops ("spiritual one-eye"), then in the following 5 tracks goes more brutal with dry-as-a-bone electroacoustic manipulations, a kind of lyophilized Japanoise or L-ne sound gone amok. The demented improv samples work really well in "return to scumbag II". Sunao Inami aptly closes the cd with more subdued drones, gentle crackles, 12k-sounding watercolours ("Still more"), minimal clicks ("Sometimes I get nowhere"). A succesfull release, not because everything here is a masterpiece, but rather because the three performers' excursions cover a spectrum of interesting sounds, and manage to keep the listener's attention focused throughout.

Sunao Inami has released a new album with Masayuki Akamatsu and Kauya Ishigami called SPL-22001 on the electr-ohm label,
featuring the three composers kneeling shrine-like before their laptops on the cover (http://cavestudio.com/electr-ohm/index_E.html).
Living up to its billing as "massive DSP based experimental computer music", the album features about 20 minutes of each composer using Powerbook G4s with MAX/MSP, Kyma, and Reaktor to generate an amazing range of timbres.
Inami's work emphasizes delicate, highly resonant filters just on the edge of breaking into oscillation punctuated with silences and crackling,
sustained pads with resonant details popping in and out, and shimmering reverberated pads of sustained pitches along with with what sounds like a massively granulated train whistle.
The sounds are imaginative and varied, sometimes (but not always) with a slow pulsing beat.

Sunao Inami's new album, repeater, is now available under the electr-ohm label (http://www.cavestudio.com/electr-ohm). Awash in ambient sound
design, BPM delay lines, and Waldorf-Wavey beats, astute Kyma users will also be able to pick out the sounds of Kyma's granular synthesis.

MOMO is great Synthesizer manipulator in Japan,he worked many musicians and he working his other band, Ambient-7,F.E.O.D. etc.
Their method is analog processing based, the human power electronic sound is mixtured '70s Kraut Rock with Electronica of 21st century.
Sunao working his own studio,it called CAVE Studio.
He has joind YMO remix album in 2000,also his synthesis knowledge and theory is important of the synthesizer business circles.
