Yasunao Tone

This Japanese artist is mostly known for his musical work. In all honesty after listening to some of his work “Part 1”, I was not a big fan. I thought that it sounded like someone just playing with different soundsĀ and not actually putting a lot of effort to make a developed song.

After reading more about Tone I found a description of his music to be “conversion of text into music via images with analog and digital means and music generating text”. From looking at the first piece I didn’t really understand that description so I looked further to find other pieces of work that were a representation of that. Unfortunately, the only other thing that I could manage to listen to was a 35 second clip of him creating more noise music. If this is a representation of Tone expressing himself through music that is fine, but it is difficult to fully appreciate it as “art”.
