about

多彩な媒体のアートディクション経験を経て2006年頃より音楽制作を始める。自ら演奏した楽器やフィールドレコーディングを同時にプロセッシングする手法を中心に独自のサウンドを形成する。 無名ながらもその研ぎ澄まされたサウンドに、デビュー前からROOM40のLawrence EnglishやNils Frahmなどが注目、対外的なデビューライブとしてAmetsubなども出演するBVDUBの初来日公演に出演。 確実に話題を集めるなかこの度待望のデビューアルバムをリリース。 ギター、ピアノ、シンセなど多数の楽器や、自然音、グリッチがスケッチのように空間に点々と配置されるシンプルで暖かみのあるサウンドに、新時代の幕開けを感じるデビュー作にして大傑作が誕生。マスタリングは日本が世界に誇る音響アーティストChihei Hatakeyama が担当。

Tomotsugu Nakamura is a musician and graphic designer residing in Tokyo, Japan. “Slow Weather” is his first album which
he spent 3 years in making these delicately crafted music. He uses various instruments such as guitar, piano, synthesizers
along with field recordings and glitches as sound sources, and lays those sounds as if sketching dotted patterns on white
clean paper. Thus the songs are shaped in very absract forms and the details are astonishingly precise, however, they sound
very tender and melodius at the end which makes his music so special and different from the others.

Tomotsugu Nakamura is a first release from kaico, a sub label of SPEKK, Tokyo organized by Tomoki Takeuchi.

Recommendation notes:

"A computer can’t be transformed better into an instrument as featured on this album. Essential!" - Nils Frahm

“With Slow Weather, Nakamura has created a phasing still life impression of his sonic surroundings - gloriously rich in detail.
This is a gentle, yet focused outing into a very personal sound world, it offers a glimpse into an unique audio vision
which is as intoxicating as it is enjoyable.” - Lawrence English
