taalem (France) 2007 3-inch CD-R
Recorded & composed in Tokyo, 2006.
All sound sources from violin, guitar, electronics and electroanalysis sound of water (by device "els19" made by manabu suzuki).
released July 10, 2007
'All sound sources are violin, guitar, electronics, electroanalysis of water' we read on the cover of the 3" CDR. Three utter soft pieces of a highly minimal movements, if indeed there are movements at all. Things crack, buzz in a delicate ambient way that is found a lot these days in the realms of computer processing. 'Le Jardin' means garden in French, but the garden depicted by Onodera in these three pieces is a cold, winter garden. The music is a bit distant and remote, even though it's quite nice, if not really a big surprise.
