An ambient piece, sometimes rough, sometimes quiet. I incorporated sounds taken at the banks of the Asahigawa, a first class river that runs through my neighborhood, into the piece. Since it was made in the summer, I used refreshing noises to express the coolness of the place. I also included the engine sounds and vibrations of rough cars blasting down the bypass road, which has an extremely inorganic shape.

The music he creates expresses the ordinary life and the scenery of the neighborhood.

Betts(JP) is an electronic sound artist from Okayama, Japan. He is a multi-instrumentalist who mainly plays live instruments such as guitar, but also uses various instruments. He uses field recordings in his works and edits them on the computer.

The performance is done with very little equipment, just a guitar and a microphone connected to two delay loopers, and the electronic droning is processed by computer in real time. Starting with his second release, “Misago,” the strict limit of five songs per piece, each 9 minutes and 58 seconds long, has given him more freedom and a wider range of expression.
