Bit-Tuner, The Japan Syndrome  
The Japan Syndrome
Label: Berenice Recordings
colored vinyl
Release Year: 2014
Style: Abstract & Headz
  Recorded at Zurich's Helsinki Klub, Bit-Tuner's «The Japan Syndrome» is a fragmentary snap shot, a rampant audio(visual) trip through Japan's largest cities. The swiss producer captures these cities via field recordings to then transform the found sound into his characteristic dark beats and minimalistic sounds.

The latent humming of Osaka, rumbling old train cars, threatening sounds of police helicopters and ravens on their low flying rounds over the parks of Tokyo. These are the sounds Bit-Tuner elaborately stacks to a slowly and heavily resonating sound construct. «The Japan Syndrome» pulls the listener through the gloomy alcoves of a country that seems to be well known to us. Still, Bit-Tuner creates the sinister feeling that arises when one stands at the deep cliffs between cultures.

Bit-Tuner recorded «The Japan Syndrome» live at Zurich's Helsinki Klub, where he works on new material regularly within his residency. Accordingly, this album is influenced by a singular Swiss musical institution. The album's live synthesizers and minimal beats give it an athmospheric denseness, that works just as well in a club at 3am, as also on the following early evening in the shaded bedroom.
