17843+ is a collection of recordings from an 8 show tour of Japan undertaken by Cycle~ 440 in February 2013. The tour took Cycle~ 440 through a variety of locations, from gallery spaces to grunge clubs, and everything in between. These recordings we collected and edited from over four hours
of material recorded during this tour through Osaka, Kyoto, and Tokyo, and show Cycle~ 440 experimenting with a variety of compositional and improvisational approaches that would inform the structures that guide the direction of their next album “The Topography of Ascending Frameworks”.
“17843+” shows Cycle~ 440 as a live force, raw, playful, and delicate, while retaining the visceral nature of their live performance, their unique brand of melodious noise vibrating throughout the different chambers of Japan’s experimental music scene.
