[Eg0_139] Ayato & Naoki Ishida : Red_control rec​.​played

Ayato & Naoki Ishida have been collaborating online since a few years. Their blending of field recordings from their two countries (France, Japan) create a new, unstable but welcoming sound territory. Their latest album Red_control rec​.​played has a dream-like quality: a somehow arbitrary mixture that you accept as a coherent whole – as long as you accept the trip as it comes without thinking about where it can lead…

[Eg0_131] Ayato & Natalia Kamia : Cluster

Between abandoned strings warped tapes and esoteric radio broadcasts,  Ayato and Natalia Kamia have found / created a new territory to explore. They are not afraid of silence, they’ve patiently listened to the resonating spaces (inside / outside) and built 8 surprising pieces that will spin around your ears like sparkles from some unknow satellites. Despite of its short length, Cluster is a very rich album, containing enough ideas to fill the full discography of less inspired musicians…You’ll probably want to hear more, so we recommend to check Ayato & Natalia previous collaboration : T, published by H.AK. Lo-Fi Record

Reviews

David Nemeth / Acts of Silence (january 28, 2015)

“Cluster, the new release from the duo of Ayato and Natalia Kamia on eg0cide Productions, starts out rather beautifully, but don’t let that fool you. Yes, Cluster is rather appealing, the music that the duo provides is deceptively fascinating. Ayato mixed this release to be the equivalent to walking through an unknown house: each room, an audible incantation; each corner, an engaging glitch;  each hallway, an added noise. Kamia played the piano, the qifteli and other objects, while Ayato played guitars, tapes, field recordings and laptop. If you enjoy this release, make sure you pick up their April 2014 release, T, on the netlabel H.A.K. Lo-Fi Record. T was mixed by Kamia, but it has the same inherent feel as Cluster, or should I say that Cluster has the same feel as T.”

[Eg0_100] The perfect failure (?) volume 3 : bras de fer avec le taenia

Here it is : “Bras de fer avec le tænia”, 3rd volume, of the perfect failure (?) / l’échec parfait (?) – even worse than the first ones : more lo-fi, more incoherent, more irritating – and longer…

[Eg0_082] Ayato vs Ghosts : Wasted shots

Supposedly dead, the stillborn ghosts (eg0cide S.A., Stillborn Blues & the ghost between the strings) have been awaken last year by Ayato‘s electronic sorcery, who even managed  to make them groove. (stillborn dub (2011)) . The eg0cidian zombies have liked this treatment enough to stay out of their graves – and ask new sonic flesh to Ayato (mostly vinyl-based rythmic structures) that they have overdubbed with various instruments. Final mixes of the resulting wasted shots have been realized by eg0cide S.A.

[Eg0_064] Ayato & Kecap Tuyul : waiting for the shaman

Waiting for the shaman is the latest collaborative album of Ayato & Kecap Tuyul, once more based on guitars sounds, but featurng also bass, flute, synth, tr606, voice, vinyl, and also  some strings sounds provided by Kecap Tilil (Kecap Tuyul’s partner in band Pura Sombar) on 2 tracks.

This new work is as hard to describe as their previous album when we talk about love and happiness , but Waiting for the Shaman one has longer tracks, is more droney – although somewhat rough & gritty sometimes, between dark psychedelia and weird ritual invocations.

[Eg0_060] Ayato and Stillborn Blues : Overlapping Horizons

After having remixed Stillborn Ghosts’ “album Over & Out” (Stillborn Dub), Ayato continued to revisit works from the eg0cide staff. This time he completed an unfinished raw mix of Stillborn Blues in a quite surprising way. If someone had told me before that Stillborn Blues’ arythmical, lo-fi, melancolic guitars could be crossed with techno-dub influences, I would have been more than sceptical. Ayato didn’t tell us before – he just did it, in a very personal way, and the result sounds amazingly cohesive despite of its heterogeneous elements.

[Eg0_054] Ayato & Kecap Tuyul : when we talk about love and happiness

New collaborative album between Ayato and Kecap Tuyul, when we talk about love and happiness , is rather hard to describe. Guitars (electric or acoustic, melodic or noisy, prepared or not) play an important role in it but are also joined by percussion, vinyls, electronic, etc… All tracks were mixed and mastered by Ayato during 2011, using raw guitar improvisations provided by Kecap Tuyul and a few sounds by other contributors : Anton Mobin, C-lya,  Benoît Hixe, Poney Club, Mystified

[Eg0_043] Crash Duo featuring Kecap Tuyul : Greffes

Kecap Tuyul was invited to play live with the Crash Duo (Anton Mobin  (prepared chamber, tapes)  and Ayato (prepared guitar, tapes)) on september 30, for the Aperaudio show curated by Radio Campus Orléans. This totally  improvised session was recorded and the 3 performers found it interesting enough to get a release (no edits have been made), available in wav, flac, ogg and mp3, with artwork by Anton Mobin

Ayato vs Ghosts : Stillborn Dub [Treetrunk Records / Eg0cide Productions]

When Ayato first listened to Stillborn Ghosts‘ double album “over & out” (released in 2009 by Svartgalgh) he immediately detected a dark dub potential in this weird mixture of post-noise-rock, dark ambient and industrial. So he asked to a member of the band – his friend & collaborator The Ghost Between The Strings – a copy of the original tracks of the album in order to do some remixes. In addition to 4 remixes, he composed new tracks using raw guitar recordings by the 2 members of the band (TGBTS & Stillborn Blues). The result can be considered as a completely new album : Stillborn Dub (and maybe even a new band, since the collaboration is going on…

The album is available as a free download from Treetrunk Records but you can also buy a CD-R version for 5 euros (excluding postage) from Eg0cide Productions. If interested, please write to tgbts0(at)gmail.com to order a copy

Subject: The birth of a new genre?
Not sure how I overlooked TGBTS until now- seeing that they have multiple releases– but I’m so very happy to find this recording.
It has a little bit of everything– (just like the description says) a “weird mixture of post-noise-rock, dark ambient and industrial”
Yes- it’s experimental… Yes- it can be very unsettling… chaotic and disastrous at times, and dark as midnight…
A great production that paints a picture of buildings collapsing into black oceans of churning restless water, crackling old radios hissing out dead songs, the sinister shadow creature just around the corner, and blue-grey TV static with its own wicked consciousness- you never know what will happen next- other than that it will leave you with a creepy feeling as though you’ve just somehow been sonically molested.
This release sets a new standard for the term “Dark Psychedelia”– and you should give it a listen. Thanks for making music of this caliber available for free.
Will definitely be checking out your other work!
Cheers!

Subject: “The Stillborn Dub” stride on a time to drift back. .
The power of a style is, may be, to develop itself across all, taking a stream end make it stronger….What is the part of the shadow when light is scarce? How to render it more deeper? How play with discord to make appear harmonic lines ? Ayato & the Ghosts drew a highway rhythm, putting points of light all along, raising abstract and scary shapes, chime out a guitar chord…..The Stillborn Dub stride on a time to drift back.
———–
La puissance d’un style est, peut-être, de pouvoir se développer dans n’importe lequel, prendre un flux et le rendre plus fort …. Quelle est la part d’ombre quand la lumière est rare? Comment la rendre plus profonde ? Comment jouer avec la discorde pour faire apparaître les lignes harmoniques?
Ayato & the Ghosts ont dessiné une autoroute-rythme, mettant des points de lumière tout le long, soulevant des formes abstraites et effrayantes, égrènent un accord de guitare …..The Stillborn Dub arpente un temps de dérive vers l’arrière.
