* Japanese CD Edition

Optrum is the fusion of Atsuhiro Ito’s guitar-like playing of a modified fluorescent tube (the Optron) and Yoichiro Shin’s years of experience as a highly technical drummer; they fittingly call their sound “optical noise core”.

Description (Japanese):
録音、ミックス、マスタリングは空間現代『空間現代2』の録音とミックス、にせんねんもんだいのニュー・アルバム『N』の録音、ミックス、マスタリングも手掛けたnoguchi_taoru(Ochiai soup / sludge-tapes)が担当(ミックスはメンバーの伊東篤宏と共同)。
伊東篤宏は2010年にはセルフ・リリースでDVD『OPTVISION』、2011年にはBLACK SMOKER RECORDSからソロ・アルバム『Midnight Pharmacist』をリリースし、現代美術家としての出自を生かしつつ、これまでのノイズ/アヴァンギャルド的なアプローチを極めながらも、ハードコア・パンクやヒップホップ勢との共演により、ジャンルを横断し、年々ファン層を拡大している。
昨年の本家「sonar2012」に続き、TAICOCLUB’13でもDIAMOND VERSION (BYETONE and Alva Noto) + Atsuhiro Itoとしての出演が決定している。
