For our third instalment we´re very proud to team up with two highly prolific producers from Japan both releasing on the Raster-Noton label: NHK yx Koyxen (aka NHK aka Kouhei Matsunaga) and Ueno Masaaki.

NHK yx Koyxen:
Kohei Matsunaga is a musician and an illustrator, born in Osaka in 1979. He started drawing at an early age, and went on to study architecture at university. He has been actively making music since 1992, with notable releases on labels such as Raster Noton, Wordsound, Mille Plateaux, Skam Records and, most recently, PAN. He has collaborated with every known name in the business, including Mika Vainio, Sensational from the Jungle Brothers, Sean Booth from Autechre, Conrad Schnitzler, Merzbow and Asmus Tietchens.

Ueno Masaaki:
a new order arises when unrelated things in chaos or disorder interact with each other.
ueno masaaki focuses on creating new orders in which unpredictability and indeterminacy coexist with regularity. his ideas come from his interest in the state of the world, natural phenomenon and laws of nature ― including weather, biological and physical processes. he incorporates these spontaneous phenomenon and processes into his work to recreate them as "artificial natural phenomenon with a new order."
ueno masaaki studied composition, piano and conducting at toho-gakuen school of music in tokyo, japan, where he completed the master's course. one of his chamber works was selected for the 76th music competition of japan awards. his winning piece »resonance of zero degree« was broadcasted on nhk-classics and played on nhk-fm.
while still a university student, he provided musical works and selected background music for several fashion shows by junko koshino and goro ito. in 2007, ueno’s idea for making a concert was chosen by suntory holding ltd., and he succeeded in holding the »p[l⇔r]ay for our world« concert at suntory-hall in akasaka, tokyo, japan.
his other highly acclaimed accomplishments include conducting the soundtrack to nhk's tv drama »kou-myou ga tuji« and working as a sub-conductor for the musical »take flight« by amon miyamoto.
in 2012, ueno started »p±h« – a group of artists that create new sound installations, and starting from 2013, he composed and published electronic music works under the name of ueno masaaki / Ωprojekt. his first release on raster-noton will be his ep »vortices«, part seven of the unun-series and out on september 22, 2014.
