      I wrote about Tetsu's fate awhile back. Will probably be as close as anyone gets to solving the mystery of his disappearance:

              I've listened Health loop from World receiver hundreds of times...never get bored of it. Unique piece of ambient there.

                If I were to have only one CD left, my choice would be "World Receiver" by Tetsu Inoue. This is the album I never get bored of, as it does have some unique blend of environmental recordings (from Japan, Thailand, Pakistan, Germany, U.S.A. as the inlay says), traditional Japanese melodies and vivid multilayered sonic collages, which sounds different with every listen and creates deeper understanding of human feelings and emotions. Trippy, microscopic and yet accessible, the music seems to enclose a deeper meaning, which is somehow impossible to understand up to the end, as if some details escape my attention but strangely continue to hold interest. No other ambient album has the same effect on me, so I highly recommend "World Receiver" to all lovers of intellectual electronic music. A whole lot of things it offers to discover.

                  One of my favorite ambient releases ever. The sounds here make me feel like I am a satellite orbiting in space intercepting random transmissions from all around the world. Either that or lying on my back gazing upwards drifting off into the void between levels of awareness.

                    this disc, to me, defines what ambient music *is.* self-explanatory, so i won't wax on about it. as an aside, inoue has a funny cameo taking field recordings inside his apartment in the film 'modulations'.
