Jacques, Anne-F / Takamitsu Ohta: Oto to Secchi [CASSETTE w/ DOWNLOAD] (Tsss Tapes)

Gendaibunmei gallery in Kyoto, recorded by Jacques as a tour of the various sonic manifestations that a visitor to the gallery might experience.

Artist Biographies:
"Anne-Françoise Jacques is a sound artist based in Montreal, Canada. She is interested in amplification, erratic sound production devices and the construction of idiosyncratic contraptions and systems. Her particular focus is on low technology, trivial objects and unpolished sound. Active in performance since 2004, Jacques has performed at venues and festivals throughout North America and Europe, collaborating with Diktat, Martin Tétreault, Ignaz Schick, Éric Normand and Miguel A. Garcia, amongst many others. Jacques also has presented installations as half of the duo Minibloc and has composed soundtracks for animated films in an ongoing collaborative project with Julie Doucet. In addition to operating sound label and mail art project Crustacés Tapes, Jacques curates a bimonthly audio art show for the Berlin-based webstation Radio On."-845 Audio 8/8/2022

"Takamitsu Ohta (大田高充 or Takamitsu Ota) is a contemporary artist, Born in Osaka, Japan. He is using material from the exact place and builds his own works. By a process of transformation, he makes things visible that everyone knows of, but doesn't pay particular attention to in daily life. He features sound recordings and cassette loops."
