Dark Side Of The Audio System is a lesser-known and highly conceptual project of Japanese artist Shinobu Nemoto. Nemoto, as many of you recognize, is a highly regarded name in the Install stable, and his work under this moniker is every bit as engaging and impressive to us as his works under his own name and as Summons Of Shining Ruins. Crafting emotive atmosphere from the beautifully simple repetitions of melancholic loops, Nemoto presents us with a series of aural tapestries over the course of this and three subsequent volumes of Loop Collections.
This is volume 5. A new full length album by Nemoto is in the works for Install - titled "Idiot" - so while our listeners wait for it, there will be a generous amount of Shinobu's work available here for free.
