Ever since the release of the colossally essential disc set Improvised Music from Japanthe label, distributor, website and journal that fall under the IMJ umbrella and all sharing the name have made for an essential clearinghouse for EAI, onkyo, lowercase, minimalist improvisation and experimental pop from the East.

The annual-ish IMJ journal, which comes with at least one CD of music per issue, has been an especially valuable source of information on the ever-shifting Japanese scenes. The recently released or at least recently States-bound issue of the journal takes as its focus the various experimental concert series and festivals in Japan.

Still, a few pieces stand out, especially since the musicians are often the organizers. Otomo Yoshihide's views on nationalism in the context of pulling together the Asian Bon-no-Kubo - Various - Improvised Music From Japan 2009 Festival are quite interesting, as is an interview with Koichi Makagami about the Jazz Art Sengawa festival.

Among the highlights across the 31 tracks are Katsura Mouri's heavy turntable outbursts, Riuchi Daijo's delicately twisted acoustic guitar and a gorgeous extended tone work by the Segments String Quartet.

Chihei Hatakeyama sculpts lush guitar-and-laptop drones similar to Fennesz, whereas Shinichi Isohata's tactile guitar drones are pulled from an archtop.

Honorable Mentions also go to a trend of literal titling: Taichi Furudate's "from contact mic to contact mic," Satoshi Kanda's "Milk Bottle on Bass Guitar," Satoshi Bon-no-Kubo - Various - Improvised Music From Japan 2009 "Rolling up a meter strip of hook-and-loop tape in a room" and Kanichiro Oda's "Pouring into Water two liters of water poured from a PET bottle into a river Are You Straight Edge Yet?

- Scab Addict / Snuffx - Scab Addict/Snuffx all wear their hearts on their sleeves. Like the text, the audio selection is a bit haphazard. It's more about covering the field than sequencing a listening program.

But as a resource, it's an excellent addition to the IMJ library. Click to View David Ware S.
