Listen to the latest edition of Electronic Oddities for a new track by Carya Amara. It’s called ‘Gadgets’ and appears alongside brand new music by 15 other electronic musicians.

The Mixcloud player below will play you the whole show, which starts with some music by D.N.P (whom you no doubt heard on the Terse Greetings 2015 compilation alongside Carya Amara).

‘Gadgets’ will appear on an album by Carya Amara one day, but for now, it can only be heard in the Electronic Oddities cloudcast.

As you may well have heard, Japan’s master synthesist Isao Tomita passed away on the 5th of May. There’s nothing that need be added to the many eulogies that have been published on the Web, but Tomita’s mastery of sound creation on analogue synthesisers cannot be overstated. Nor should we overlook his skill as an arranger who brought his knowledge of orchestral dynamics to bear on the layering of electronic sounds by bouncing mixes between his various tape recorders.

Abomination of Yondo‘s second album That Remote and Awful Twilight, released in 2012, has one track that is dedicated to Tomita, which seemed appropriate largely because of my obsessive, but, I think, at least partly successful, attempt to emulate what we might call his “accelerating spaceship” effect, as heard, for instance, in his arrangement of Holst’s Planet Suite. I think I still have a great deal to learn from listening to his records. If you would like to find out more about how Tomita worked on his early albums, his LP Sound Creature (did they perhaps mean ‘Sound Creator’?), released by RCA Japan in 1977, is highly recommended.

RIP Isao Tomita 22 April 1932 – 5 May 2016

Oompa Loopma RiotA track by Carya Amara is included on the compilation Oompa Loopma Riot 2015, which is the first release on Tom Ellard’s resurrected ‘Terse’ imprint. It has 34 tracks and you can download it for free.

‘Concealed Sky’ is a track which was actually finished a few years ago but which had not previously seen the light of day (this is pretty typical for Carya Amara…).
