r-n 046 | mitchell akiyama. temporary music | compact disc


born in toronto, based in montreal, mitchell akiyama has been carving a niche for himself as one of the premier avant-garde electronic artists in canada.originally trained in classical music and jazz on piano and guitar, he began composing electronic music in 1995.

akiyamas new album, "temporary music", is a collection of fragments - shards of pianos, pieces of field recordings, digital interruptions. all pieces are homages to places and people whose images have changed and faded over time. "temporary music" is a representation of the ephemeral nature of experience and the instability of memory.
