"Toshiya Tsunoda has been prolific in the experimental arts community for over two decades. Born in 1964 in Kanagawa, Japan, he studied oil painting at the Tokyo National University of Fine Arts and Music, where he received an MFA. In 1994, he co-founded and ran label WrK alongside m/s, releasing sound art pieces from various young Japanese sound artists, including his own. He currently runs labels Skiti and edition.t. Tsunoda's recorded works often take the form of untainted field recordings- his Extract from Field Recording Archive series documents vibrations through solid objects and air, and his CD Ridge of Undulation features minimally processed recorded landscapes and vibrations, with sparse sine waves. Tsunoda has released collaborations with Seijiro Murayama, Taku Sugimoto, Mitsuhiro Yoshimaru, and (most recently) Michael Pisaro, among many others."-Issue Project Room
