Prog. notes: "Kitsune" is Unami's series of compositions that focus on limited materials and simple time structures. The airiness of the recording emphasizes the acoustic nature of the sounds produced, but the mechanical rhythms and apoetic structure belie the electronic source of the music. The uneasy marriage of these two elements evokes a kind of enchanted world of personified utensils that is as likely to produce a Duchampian smirk as a stargazer's awe.
