"Creatively, Nobukzu Takemura is inspired by both the 'impressionist and objective conception' of John Cage, Brian Eno and Afrika Bambaata, and the free form creativity of John Coltrane and Robert Wyatt. These influences are evident in his debut solo release, 1994's eponymous Child's View. 1997 saw the release of two records from Takemura: the 2nd Child's View record, Child And Magic and Changing Hands, a collaboration with Steve Jansen and Richard Barbierie. Scope is Nobukazu's debut Thrill Jockey full length. The five tracks all vary widely in style. Some focus on repetitive grooves that gradually transform into symphonies of delicately layered waves of sound while others offer organ-based melodies and alluringly stretched vocals. Also evident are intricate conversations between blips and bleeps that have more personality than half the humans you know. Put away your BPM counters, this is modern technology morphing.
