Terms like “busy bee” were invented for artists like Chihei Hatakeyama. Living just outside of Tokyo, Sound Sculptor Hatakeyama has worked in straight-forward Rock environments (with a couple of bands while still at school), electronic ensemble constellations (as part of Opitope with Tomoyoshi Date or the constantly fluctuating line-up of improvisatory formation Copa del Papa) and as a solo artist (releasing his debut on respected label Kranky in 2005). He also organises regular Sound Art events and is co-head of the Kualauk Table-imprint, documenting some of the most rewarding sessions at these performances. Having just moved to a new home, he has now entered his most productive creative phase and his most prolific period as a recording act: Current projects “Saunter” and “The River” have already been reviewed on tokafi over the past weeks and another new full-length, “The Secret distance of TOCHKA” is out now on Boid. All of them are conceptual in some form, even though this term does not carry the typical analytical connotations attached to many comparable productions: “Saunter” (On Room40) deals with the Chinese painting style “Sansui-Ga” and “The River” with the philosophical idea that you can never “enter the same river twice” (famously proposed in “Apocalypse Now”). With this in mind, we sat down with Chihei Hatakeyama to talk about the interrelation between sounds and ideas.
