Album Notes
The 4th compilation album was released from the Japanese label `Futurama Laboratory'. This CD contains 10 tracks based on ambient, electronica and techno music. Each of tracks composed by the nine musicians with vastly different backgrounds has its own special feature and moreover, their tracks are bringing out the best of each other. This CD is full of the sonal synerzy. The playing time is 52min.

Track list and what tracks are like:

1. Shell / routen
Vocal is on a techno/ambient backtrack. Experimental pop like Bjork. Atmosphere of the track is influenced by ambient works of Brian Eno.
Sounds Like: Bjork, Peter Gabriel, Brian Eno

2. TraceRoute / blUsine
Electronic music consists of arpeggio synth sound and unique rhythm track. Not quite danceable but rhythmical and cheerful.
Sounds Like: rei harakami, Squarepusher

3. Catalogue d'oiseaux / Takenobu Takahashi
Minimal techno featuring twitters of various wild birds in Japan. This title was borrowed from Olivier Messiaen's piano pieces.
Sounds Like: Maurizio, Juan Atkins, Ricardo Villalobos

4. Shy / TDO
A kind of soundscape near the pop music. The sound shows variation centring on the combination of pad sound and synth piano. It is cloudy and clear.
Sounds Like: Massive Attack, Underworld, Robin Guthrie (Cocteau Twins)

5. Jericho / Yuu Kagimoto
Synthesizer sounds and male vocal make a sublime and sacred field, this is a spiritual work.
Sounds like: Niyaz, Franl Lorentzen, Brian Eno

6. Graphica of Zero Frame / pola
Failed to make a kind of industrial music, so I dare call this song "an experimental chaos tune".
Sounds Like: grainrain, Primal Scream

7. microcollider / grainrain
Tidily placed sinewaves, pulsewaves and whitenoises. Inorganic, sharp-edged and a bit groovy electroacoustic track influenced by alva noto.
Sounds Like: alva noto, Ryoji Ikeda

8. Coulomb / Sesqui
The composer intended to make an atmosphere like '80 techno tunes by means of rhythm and bass tracks consisting of prepared pianos. But this song is merely neither Experimental nor Techno Pop. It seems to be also contained in the category of present-day Electronica/Techno music.
Sounds Like: Ryuichi Sakamoto, Haruomi Hosono

9. parallel tendency / tekeshima
This song is based on the concept that two kinds of sonics (noise and electronics) interferes in parallel. As a result, atmosphere is caused in the peculiarity.
Sounds Like: Brian Eno, Arto Lindsay, matmos

10. Reiquis / Yuu Kagimoto
Sweet techo-music with a slight vocal. Easy listening music.
Sounds Like: Haruomi Hosono, Galaxy 2 Galaxy, Robert Miles
