About this item

Faitiche releases the album "Improvisations And Edits, Tokyo 26.09.2001" on vinyl for the first time. For the original 2002 CD on Soup-Disk and Sub Rosa (Audiosphere), Jan Jelinek and the Japanese trio Computer Soup (Satoru Hori - trumpet, Osamu Okubo - toys & electronics, Kei Ikeda - toys & electronics) presented eight tracks all recorded one afternoon in the trio's living room in Tokyo.

Languid and jazz influenced, it received criticism at the time for being 'cluttered' and 'unstructured' but this has only helped to bury, away from site in the plethora of other CD-only projects released at the time. With revived interest in all things glitch and a see set of ears, 20 years later this is sounding super! Like being lost in a computerized enchanted forest - a synthesized collage of mellowed out yet haunting sounds.

'Improvisations and Edits is a warm and mellow ambient release with beautiful glitch fragments, static noise bursts and real trumpet intersections' -ambientexotica.com, 2003.
