Makunouchi Bento has created a very personal style over the years, working with melody, noise and rhythm and often leaving some space for more explosive sounds and beats; this live recording is a continuation and expansion of themes brought up on ‘Rokurokubi’ (the numia battle winner track) and ‘Kunitoki’ – at times it is playing with bits of somehow dark and intriguing japanese vocals and atmospheric textures, acoustic bleeps and noises that later develop a ground-breaking, urban/dub breakbeat, with familiar textures and mysterious basspads. The whole recording seems to be one well-composed track, and even the older tracks are handled to the point where they blend perfectly in this wonderful acoustic/electronics mix. This release is certainly the best liveset one could expect from this amazing duo, and is strongly recommended to anyone that has been appreciating Makunouchi Bento’s work over the years.




Live recording from the TM04BASE Festival (15.10.2004, Timi┼čoara, Romania), featuring two guests on guitar and keyboard.

Album Reviews

With this episode we are treated to a live set of their trademark sound, and what a set it is. I would have loved to be in the crowd for this one. I didn't recognize all the tracks in the mix, but the ones I did, I was suprised at how obliterated they were from the originals. Things stay mostly on the more extreme IDM side of the spectrum, ocassionally lapsing into ambient interludes, only to crash into more sweet & lovely experimentations. Read more...
