Tsunoda, Toshiya / Manfred Werder

Tsunoda, Toshiya / Manfred Werder: Detour (erstwhile)

Label: erstwhile    
Released in: USA    

"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

Manfred Werder was born in 1965 and lives in Zürich. He is a member of the Wandelweiser Group. "Composer, performer, curator, lives in situ. Manfred Werder focuses on possibilities of rendering the practices regarding composition and field. His recent scores have featured either found sentences from poetry and philosophy, or found words from whatever sources. His performances, both indoors and outdoors, aim at letting appear the world's natural abundance. Earlier works include stück 1998, a 4000 page score whose nonrecurring and intermittent performative realization has been ongoing since December 1997."-Sounds of Europe"
