"Six years after the release of "Hypernatural #2", Yoshio Machida is rounding up his magnificent trilogy of electroacoustic collages with "Hypernatural #3". A unique and highly personal work, the Hypernatural series has made of Machida a world-class sound artist. Assemblages of field recordings and treated instrumental sounds, the music on "Hypernatural #3" evokes simultaneously the universal and the intimate, Mankind and Nature. Yoshio Machida has been working on this series since 1997. The first volume was self-released in 1999 and had for theme memory in Eastern Asia ; Volume 2, released by Softl Music in 2001, focused on transparency, unconsciousness and invisible existence. "Hypernatural #3", the last instalment in this triptych, is about oblivion. Machida explains: "Oblivion is characteristic of the correlation between matter and time. Oblivion has a positive aspect: it appears as a natural phenomenon in the passage of time and becomes a factor in creating new worlds. Nature consists of a myriad of different memory-oblivion cycles"." (label info)
