Small Cruel Party & Aube - Across The Water (LP, Ant-Zen act 36, 1996)
I posted music by Small Cruel Party before, but not a lot by Aube, since I don't have his work that much. From discogs: "Aube is a solo project, begun in 1991 by Akifumi Nakajima. Taking a minimalist approach for his recordings, Nakajima uses simple source sounds which are fed into his system, then heavily processed into a vast dimensional landscape of sonic textures. Source sounds can range from the organic sounds of gurgling water, to isolating elements of technology, such as the curious hum of luminous lamps. The result is a mixture of controlled manipulation and beautiful accident. Since May of 1992, Nakajima started and continues to operate G.R.O.S.S. - his own cassette label dedicated to releasing experimental music, and noise, in addition to his own recordings as Aube. He has worked on recordings with artists from Japan, Europe and the United States in various different capacities and has designed packaging for many other releases."
