Mini CD audio (pressed) in a crystal DVD case. Printed cover, inlay and logo card. Album designed bookmark. Hand-numbered… Japan-based musician Jan Linton returns with his first extended-and non Japanese-release for several years, in cooperation with the makers of the Buddha Machine, FM3. Titled “Buddha Machine Music”, it continues the experimental themes and ambient techniques from his collaborations with Leo Abrahams (better known as Eno’s regular guitarist), Richard Barbieri (ex Japan), Beatsystem (Derek Pierce),and his academic work under Dr. Joseph Hyde. Prior to this he released several albums and singles in the avant rock vein, from major and cult labels in Japan. This mini album takes the sounds from Buddha Machines 1 and 2, and morphs them into complete pieces or songs with surprising results, combining them with some live solos of ethinic instruments such as the Chinese Zhongruan, (or, “Moon Guitar”), played by Linton.
Omniiq has been composing sounds for over three decades. From the more conventional classical training in the early years to the freedom of sonic experimentation now, the common thread is a passion for creating. Accidental composition. Chance ambiences. (Un)fortunate soundscapes. Ordinary sounds manipulated beyond recognition. Aural abuse. The journey is all important, the destination will look after itself.
