released January 1, 2009

Originally released on Critical Path in 2005, Entropy is yet one more release on a seemingly endless conveyor belt of static distillations of guitar and electronics, transposed into saccharine galaxies of purple-pink cumulus. Imprints such as Touch, 12k and Baskaru have made their names with music such as this, but the constructs of Tokyo’s Onodera possess enough poise and finesse to rank them alongside works by Christian Fennesz, Lawrence English and Ethan Rose. Like those aforementioned artists, Onodera is a sculptor in total control of his materials, deploying the timbre and tempo (or absence thereof) of a minimalist palette for maximum effect. The introduction of snippets of environmental recording serve to create the occasional, welcome bookmark during an album of often disorientating uniformity; 10 untitled drones forming a monolithic constant, losing the listener to its hex. Yeah, maybe there are too many albums like this floating around but, if from the over-populated crop-fields jewels such as this can be harvested, then we’d be fools to really care.
