Frantic laptop doodling by Nobukazu Takemura - "Scope" and "Sign". More squeaks than from a mouse organ; more static than Radio Luxembourg.

"T" is for Thrill Jockey.

"Takemura has stated that "making music for me is like a child humming," this simple statement belies the complex nature of the music, but also speaks to the heart of the results, playful melodies and whimsical textures and sounds. A great example is the melodically effected, computerized vocals on the title track, "Sign". Takemura amazingly manages to make the computer "vocals" sing. A further example of his playfulness is indicated by the twist of the sing into the title, "Sign"."
