Description

By definition, NOBLE NICHE is a Glitch and Noise genre album. But why doesn't it sound like neiter, Glitch or Noise? Well, this album is based on the most neglected type of Glitch sounds: Noise. Naturally, noise is not exactly easy listening, and NOBLE NICHE is no exception. However, NOBLE NICHE is not to be confused with the rather provocative or even trashy (Japa)Noise genre. Instead, YU MIYASHITA managed to apply the (Glitch) aesthetics known from many classic MILLE PLATEAUX releases to digital noise. The sounds suggest that YU made digital data audible that was never meant to reach anyone's ears (ever accidently played back a CD-Rom?). The range of different kinds of noise sounds is impressive - and leaves the listener clueless about their possible origin.
Highly abstract, with only traces of musical chords, you will probably only get a few real world associations: A life support machine, a dentist's drill, the Star Trek bridge or maybe a japanese pachinko hall - well, hell in this case. Often intense, powerful and disturbing, sometimes delicate & fragile, never predictable. The next dose for audio junkies desperate for another, yet unheared sound.

Der Definition nach ist NOBLE NICHE ein Glitch - und Noise-Album. Nur: Warum klingt es dann nicht wirklich nach Glitch oder Noise? Nun, dieses Album basiert auf der wohl am meißt vernachlässigten Art von Glitch-Sounds: Rauschen. Naturgemäß fällt Rauschen nicht gerade unter die Kategorie 'Easy Listening' und NOBLE NICHE ist da keine Ausnahme. Dennoch darf man es nicht mit dem eher provokanten und oft dreckigen (Japa)Noise verwechseln. YU MIYASHITA hat es vielmehr geschafft, die (Glitch)-Ästhetik vieler früherer MILLE PLATEAUX Klassiker auf digitales Rauschen anzuwenden. Viele Sounds klingen, als hätte YU Daten hörbar gemacht, die nie für diesen Zweck bestimmt waren (schon mal aus Versehen eine CD-Rom auf der Hifi-Anlage abgespielt?) Die Bandbreite unterschiedlicher Arten von Rauschen ist beeindruckend und läßt den Hörer über deren Herkunft rätseln.
Sehr abstrakt, nur mit Spuren von Akkorden, wird man es schwer haben irgendwelche Assoziationen zu haben: Vielleicht eine Intensivstation, eine Karies-Behandlung bein Zahnartzt, die Kommandobrücke bei Star Trek - oder vielleicht die Kakophonie einer japanischen Pachinko-Spielhölle.
Oft intensiv und kraftvoll, manchmal filigran und subtil, nie vorhersehbar: Der nächste 'Schuss' für Sound-Junkies auf ihrer verzweifelten Suche nach dem nächsten, bislang noch ungehöhrtem Klang…

Artist Biography

Born 1984 in Yamanashi, Japan.

Many of Yu’s compositions are based on the Glitch and Onkyo branches of Noise which he grew up with in the late 1990’s.

Glitch is constructed from digital debris, errors and the processing (often the misuse, reuse or abuse) of normally extraneous sounds, instruments and machinery. Glitch musicians will record bugs, crashes, system errors, hardware noise, skipping and audio distortion on their computers.

Onkyo is based on free improvisation and also appeared during the late 1990’s. This type of music is more textural than structural, cutting together elements of electronic music and even silence.

Yu Miyashita gathers bits of noise intuitively and assembles them into his Onkyo/Glitch/Noise hybrids.
