1) ASTRO is Hiroshi Hasegawa's solo 'space-noise' project. Hasegawa is best known as a founding member of Japanese noise legends C.C.C.C. (also Astromero, Astral Travelling Unity, senssurround orchestra, YBO²). He has begun his solo unit ASTRO with analog synthesizers in 1993 as well as playing in C.C.C.C. Though his solo focuses on music that stems from a similarly analogue mindset, conjuring feverish dreamscapes from primitive oscillators, ring modulators and field recordings.
