Artist Biographies:

"Yoshio Machida (町田 良夫 Yoshio Machida?, born 1967 in Japan) is an experimental musician, a steelpanist, composer, and visual artist.

A member of ASCAP, Machida studied minimal art, music and film at the Tama Art University under Kuniharu Akiyama, Yoshiaki Touno, Sakumi Hagiwara and Kishio Suga. In the 1990s, Machida worked for an international cooperation in Asia and Africa.

Machida's first album Hypernatural (1999) had been featured with Brian Eno and Oval (band) on David Toop's article about Generative music. In 2001, Machida started to play improvised music by Steelpan with computer program Max/MSP. Machida has been invited to perform in ISEA2004, Sónar Tokyo, MaerzMusik and other venues. In 2004, Machida founded an experimental music label Amorfon. In 2007, Machida formed an electric Dub band miimo with tatsu and Norihide Saji. Machida also organized "Japan-Macedonia exchange art exhibition" and some workshops for children.

As a visual artist, Machida has produced Photobatik like Photogram technique using photographic paper. Photograms are produced by partial exposure and development of the entire photosensitive surface. Photobatik is "whole exposure and partial development." Machida has expanded his technique to overexposure of the photographic paper followed by only fixing the image, resulting in a pink image."

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"A neo alternative folk band from Serbia, CINC was praised by Simon Raymonde (Cocteau Twins) for the previous album "Shine of Wot?" as "Beguiling". In this time, they made a unique enthusiastic album in the motif of classic poetries. Used poetries by a medieval poet Francois Rabelais (1494-1553), Francois Villon (1431 - after 1463), Goethe (1749-1832), Baudelaire (1821-1867), etc. as lyrics adventurously, but the songs (that are sang in English, Serbian, French, German, Czech and Japanese) are very refreshing. The members are changed from the previous album, now they are mainly four persons (Djordje Ilic: acoustic guitar, vocals / Luka Stanisavljevic: bass, vocals / Irena Vanic: vocals / Srdjan Stojanovic: violin, vocals). Male & female vocals on guitar, bass, violin, steel pan (Yoshio Machida played!), rhythm machine and percussions are well-balanced so that they music is natural & friendly very much. With funny stuffs like Karate terms that Irena Vanic sings, kazoo & mouth harp, humor and beauty are mixed intellectually."-Amorfon
