LOW STOCK LEVEL
"Naohiko Sugimoto (a.k.a. Mondii) comes from Chiba, Japan and is by all means a Japanese avant noise artist -- though not in the traditional sense. Mondii plays more with the electronic, a sculptor of clicks and beeps, rather than the loud and grinding noisecore most are known for. He is an experimentalist, weaving soundscapes and inorganic textures with little regard for structure or sequence. Inspired by everyday sounds and experiences, Mondii explains 'I always try to follow my mood and try to bring in some element that I haven't done before. I want to touch all kinds of sounds, instruments, and structure to expand my way of expression and make a fresher sound.' Mondii is not concerned with coloring between the lines, rather questioning why the lines are there to begin with. T:P was mixed and treated by John Hughes III, founder of the Chicago avant-electronic label Hefty records. Mondii is Hughes' most experimental project to date, pushing the boundaries of both art and music."
