Tetsu Inoue + Taylor Deupree
The long-anticipated SF <> NYC collaboration between Tetsu Inoue and Taylor Deupree is complete. A 14 track CD; Active/freeze
combines Inoue's painstakingly detailed DSP abuse with Deupree's keen ear for repetition and rhythmic loops into a fragment-based composition that is simultaneously jarring, random, intricate and melodic.
Alternately based out of New York, San Francisco and& Tokyo, composer Tetsu Inoue has been making and releasing experimental electronic music for over a decade. His digital music works, including Waterloo Terminal
(Caipirinha, 1999) Fragment Dots
(Tzadik, 2000) & Audio
(Fax, 2000) aim for the middle ground between engaging and esoteric, squeezing from the complex sonorities of DSP a relaxed playfulness that balances his music's formalistic disruptions. Tetsu also has releases on Daisyworld, Harvest (EMI), and Rather Interesting.
B0ased in Brooklyn, Taylor runs 12k and has had recent releases on Mille Plateaux's Ritornell series and Raster Music. His sound design and audio compositions are created using a network of macintosh computers and analog modular synthesizers. With 12k Taylor hopes to bring a new level of art-consciousness to music labels in America.
