Boomkat Product Review:
Quietly spellbinding, poetic minimalism from Masaya Kato on Line, navigating the finest path between super sparse, ricocheting knocks, ephemeral jazz chords and asymmetric prangs. Sounds like Mark Fell and Reinhold Friedl playing a slow game of sonic battleships or creating an exquisite corpse on a reverberating sound stage at the depths of night
“'Wavefront Aberrations' is a new work in 2019 by Masaya Kato. This work is an album approaching material minimalism thorough embodiment represented by the act of playing instruments and also mainly composed of improvisation based on extended techniques of the piano and drone by playing of the Fender Rhodes in tonality and improvisation.
These two abstract but independent waves are expected to be weaved in each composition to continue to undergo changes into other ripples in attenuation all tones have.
Masaya Kato is a Japanese composer and sound artist. Influenced much by poetry, video or performing arts and based on perception and cutaneous senses in daily life, he sets it as a opportunity for his creation that how much he can be released from the premise through the interrelation between space and individual that "body = body" and "individual = individual". Besides, he has released works from labels such as Somehow Recordings (UK), Time Released Sound (US) and Whitelabrecs (UK).”
