Warm Geometry is the second in our Pastorale Electronics series, which aims to promote “young talent” from the banana republic most of us here at Unrezt call home [Wallifornia for those of you who haven’t been following]. To be fair, Odaka doesn’t really qualify as “young talent”, as he’s already made quite a name for himself as Rawakari, with a first EP – entitled “Ikebana” - released on the notorious Elf Cut imprint at the dawn of the millennium. Nonetheless, this is a novel enterprise for him, as instead of resorting to extensive editing and treatments with a computer, he dabbles here with a flurry of machines, to obtain that distinctive analogue sound. Even the graphic design is the result of a more “back to basics” technique, without the assistance of a computer once again, but rather via sketching and plain and simple drawing. I believe this may even be the appropriate time to pay homage to the wankers who broke in to his place and nicked all his gear, without which he probably would never have picked up a pad and a pencil again. Which goes to show that good still sometimes comes from bad.
