"AmbiEntrance: Can you explain the term "Otaku" for those who may not be familiar?
Inoue: "Otaku" is kind of a nerd, a collector. In Japan, it's used as a negative term.
AmbiEntrance: Did you "plan" for Ambiant Otakuto become such a rarity?
Inoue: No, I didn't. I don't believe in "limited release".
AmbiEntrance: Did you have anything to do with its re-release?
Inoue: No, I'm not to do with the re-release.Peter was mentioning about people paying 100 dollars for a disc and it was really ridiculuous. Many people asked, so he decided to release it again*.
What I don't understand is when people still want me to make music like that.
I usually make music which I hear in my head, right now I don't hear Ambiant Otaku 2... maybe in the future. "
*please note: this title has gone OOP since this interview.
I heard Inoue before I listened to Eno. I now understand whence Tetsu's influences, but it's the way he does it. I went on a binge some years ago, grabbing up as many of his titles as I could afford. Kicking myself for not making backups for all:) This is where his sound started to affect so many, where he began to commit his sonic diaries to album. Sublime. 320.
