Nisei23’s recent album was born as a MIDI experiment 3 years ago. It’s his second full length release on rec72 and it’s worth that while! Because you’ll see drones and gravity’s rainbow after listening elevenandtwelve, that wild electronic shoe-gazer star. Most of the playing – synths, pianos, guitars – has been improvised on an iPhone, recorded simultaneously on a computer and edited afterwards. nisei23’s album contains thirteen titles (+5o minutes).
Tokyo Song was the only song from the elevenandtwleve sessions [when Soft Shapes album come to existence] that seemed to fit with the new songs I was creating. So I decided to use that title as reference to this new way of working that I had developed. Also the majority of the song were recorded or composed in 2011 and 2012 so it seemed to fit.
