Straytone: modular synthesizer

Recorded, mixed, and mastered by Straytone in June 2019
Artwork and design by Cathy Fishman

Ftarri has released four CDs to commemorate the 7th anniversary (in August 2019) of the Ftarri shop in Suidobashi, Tokyo. This fourth CD is a solo album by modular synthesizer artist Straytone.

The album consists of one track (48 min. 30 sec.) in which Straytone creates a collage from several recordings of his own solo improvisations on modular synthesizer. The repetition of sequences of kinetic, rough sounds and sequences of static, smooth sounds creates dynamism, and the overall sound is deftly transformed over time, keeping the listener riveted throughout. This excellent CD demonstrates Straytone's amazing performing and structuring skills.
