Finally, the conclusion of the Hypernatural electroacoustic trilogy...

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.

Press quotes

Great record of intelligent and thoughtful electronic music.
THE SOUND PROJECTOR, November 2008

Machida's deft weave of field recordings and treated electronic sounds makes for a beautiful relationship between 'reality' and artifice.
THE WIRE, September 2008

Sounds acknowledged yet unfamiliar, an abnormal disorientation that's also among the best places to be lost in.
TOUCHING EXTREMES, August 2008

D'une stupéfiante beauté sonore.
RIFRAF, July/August 2008

Beau, tout simplement.
ETHERREAL, July 2008

Absolutely gorgeous stuff!
GAZ-ETA, July 2008

Disque magnifique.
OCTOPUS, May 2008

Some beautiful segments that inspire real moments of wonder.
CYCLIC DEFROST, April 2008

The effect is invariably impressive: all eight pieces proving to be hypnotizing surreal ambient meditations of the utmost quality. [Translated from German]
QUIET NOISE, April 2008

Machida actually emerges with something that's not only worth hearing, but is also exceptionally compelling and beautiful.
THE SOUND PROJECTOR, March 2008

"Hypernatural #3" is a sentimental ending to the series, many of its pieces coming across as yearning meditations on things beyond our control.
TOKAFI, March 2008

Un concentré d'intelligence et de raffinement.
TAPAGE NOCTURNE, February 2008
