Hataken is Techno artist chart #3 (9/29/2007) at the MP3.COM.AU
Thank you for your listening !
" THE CHAMPIONSHIP "
Techno Chart No.1 ,
at MP3.COM.AU now !!
Thank you for listening !! Techno No.1, Dance/Electronic No.16,Overall No.94 ranking .
here is the album which made in the mid of Summer , influenced by trip of highland area of Japan .
in this Summer , Tokyo and around are the hottest Summer in the record... but highland is so nice cool wind , fresh air ,
and the bright clear lights by the Sun .
my music is bit different from usual , much less sounds with Hybrid (analogue & digital) sound .
and there is resort mood and you can listen the field recording nature sound in these tracks .
hope enjoy and relax !
their " eating sound " loop also can be listened in "Shirakavacation" too : )

I am not native English speaker , but tried : )
MATRIXSYNTH blog is one of the famous blog about synthesizers . there are always fresh interesting infomation from the world .
1. Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?
2. So when was your first exposure to synths and what were they?
3. What synths did you pick up again after 1991 until today? Can you briefly comment on your interaction with each and what has lead you to your current setup?
4. Above, you mentioned: "that time , actually I didn't care real analogue or digital ... I use frequency counter for leading the sound healing by binaural way."? Can you talk a bit about this technique?
5. So tell us about your current system and how it is working for you?
