*0 - 0.00

*0 or /0 as he will ... is the work of Nosei Sakata. I find him endlessly fascinating, sometimes theoretically empty and sometimes contact mic looped glitch festivals. And practically invisible on searches ... so, just in case you don't know:

"Asterisk-zero means "multiplied by zero (calculation)", so answers are zero in all cases. As a result *0 means "nothing". That is the main concept of *0's works, the Oriental thought about nothing, Japanese thought about "mu" (nothing in Japanese). Nothing ...nothing could create all things."


CDr released on his own Mu Label in 1998.

Thanks, hadn't heard of Sakata before reading this. Genuinely fascinating and looking forward to giving it a listen

I love this! It can be very challenging music (to me at least), but it's really mesmerizing once you let it take you. Thanks!
