Space Machine – Complete Space Tuning CS Box Set

Out of stock


pace Machine is the perfect counterpoint to Masonna. Rather than screaming noise and physical action, here Yamazaki veers toward the territory of non-rhythmic, pure electronics that resonate heavily with post-war avant-garde synthesis, channeling a similar territory of sonority that emerged from studios like Princeton, Columbia, EMS, GRM, conjoined with more contemporary temperaments of electronica and onkyo free improvisation as well as the Krautrock of Zeit’s Tangerine Dream or Klaus Schulze’s early solo works via analog echo machines and synthesizers (EMS VSC3, Roland System 100 & 100M, PAIA 4700 Modular, Doepfer Modular, among many others). The music of Space Machine has an otherworldly quality, evoking visions of distant galaxies and cosmic landscapes. Yamazaki’s compositions often unfold slowly, building layers of sound that ebb and flow like celestial tides. There is a sense of vastness and expansiveness in the music, as if listeners are being carried through the depths of the universe on a cosmic voyage. What sets Space Machine apart is Yamazaki’s keen sense of improvisation and experimentation. He fearlessly embraces unpredictability and spontaneity, allowing the music to evolve organically. Each performance becomes a unique and immersive experience, with Yamazaki navigating through sonic realms in real-time, defying traditional notions of structure and form.

The sonic textures and atmospheres created by Space Machine are hauntingly beautiful, with moments of introspection and introspective contemplation. Yamazaki’s meticulous attention to detail and his ability to manipulate sound result in a multi-dimensional listening experience. The music engages the senses, stimulating both the mind and the spirit. Describing the project in the collection’s liner notes, Satoru Higashiseto states: “The flickering cosmic drama constructed from hallucinogenic electronic sounds is sometimes accompanied by back-projections that stir up psychedelic images in the mind. The performances are usually solo, but on occasion Yamazaki has invited guests such as Kawabata Makoto (Acid Mothers Temple), Nakaya Koichi (Nasca Car), or Hasegawa Hiroshi (Astro, ex-C.C.C.C.), to create even more immense cosmic jam sessions.”

Whether experienced in a live setting or through recorded works, Space Machine’s music is an invitation to embark on a sonic odyssey. It is an immersive and transformative journey that expands the boundaries of what is possible in music. Maso Yamazaki’s visionary project continues to captivate and inspire listeners, pushing the boundaries of sonic exploration and paving the way for new possibilities in the realm of experimental music. Absolutely amazing and essential for any fan of the Japanese scene.
