Shigeto: Relentless Drag

Full Circle, Shigeto’s first full-length album due on November 9th, completes the journey begun with the artist’s Semi-Circle EP, now a vibrant, fully unified artistic statement. The sounds on Full Circle come from four years of obsessive field recording and collaboration. Shigeto brought his Tascam mini-recorder with him everywhere, capturing the “glasses, chains, breathing, children, family meals, monks singing in cathedrals, walks in the south of France, and good friends offering their musical skill” that would all find homes in the record’s composition.

    This is great, for some reason the track made me think of moving furniture and things falling over. I’ve been thinking of getting a Tascam recorder myself, though I’m not sure what I would do with it…Try to make some kind of art I guess. I’ve always felt inspired by the likes of David Holmes, Moby, Amon Tobin (specifically how they made use of found sounds they recorded). Thanks for the info on another similar artist.
