Help me find this DJ/composer: Japanese, contemporary, recent
September 17, 2016 11:40 AM   Subscribe

I came across a DJ/composer recently (in the last year / 18mos). He may have been featured on the blue. The work that I remember listening to was 10-25mins long, quite active, and sounded a bit like channel-flipping — very contrasting sections were juxtaposed with very sharp transitions. I'm almost certain the artist was Japanese. I can't remember for sure whether the instruments were electronic, classical, or a mix. Please help!

The Hifana album Channel H sounds like this, but it's more than 10-25 minutes long, and probably isn't what you're remembering. (though there's also a DVD that's even more channel surfinger). Even if it's not what you're thinking of, it's awesome and I super duper recommend it.

I'm pretty sure he had a name+surname... the Hifana album sounds super cool but isn't it.

Were the juxtaposed sections recognizable fragments or choppy textures, glitches, etc.?

Very recognizable, even melodic. It was kind of like contemporary classical seasoned with a glitch aesthetic...and using that for structural breaks or transitions.

Rhizome! You're amazing. The word 'glitch' was all I needed. It was Kashiwa Daisuke: http://www.metafilter.com/158972/Program-music-of-Kashiwa-Daisuke-telling-stories-without-words

Thank you!
