Sendai Japan Series 2 is the second release in a series of release on Force of Nature designed to raise money to benefit the victims of the Earthquake/Tsunami that struck Japan on March 11th 2011. Compiled by Miguel de Sousa, founder & editor in chief of electronic music webzine Connexion Bizarre, with artwork by Gustavo Guerra, and mastered by Jeff Swearengin of Sleep Clinic, this compilation features work by a selection of international artists.
The pieces presented were influenced or in some way relate to the catastrophe that hit Japan earlier this year, which continues to effect the daily lives of those who live there and which will have consequences for many generations to come.
Beginning with the disjointed lo-fi glitches & broken beats of Enzym (DE) and concluding with the hopeful moods of Utopia:Banished (DE), through the acid-influenced quirky electronics of Az-Rotator (ES) and the signature IDM of Tapage (NL) to the haunting sounds of Serial Industrie (FR) and Pandora's Black Book (US), this chilled and rather cinematic compilation aims to give something back to a country, a people and a culture who have so often proven inspirational and influential to many of us.
At the time of release, all profits from the sale if this release went directly to charities supporting the victims of the earthquake and subsequent tsunami in Sendai Japan in 2011. Now you can download it for free.
