Program is NHK’s first full album and first release on CD.
NHK is a collaborative project initiated in 2006 by Japanese artists yx koyxen (Kouhei Matsunaga) and fm™ (Toshio Munehiro). Both artists live and work in Osaka, Japan.
Mainly as a side project of prolific producer Kouhei Matsunaga (who is working under many different aliases such as NHK’Koyxen, NHKyx, Internet Magic, Koyxen), they started making experimental dub techno with a more raw and harsh edge to it. He has collaborated with artists including Merzbow, Jungle Brothers’ Sensational, Autechre’s Sean Booth, Mika Vainio, Conrad Schnitzler, Asmus Tietchens, Ralf ‘RLW’ Wehowsky, and more. His own label Flying Swimming was founded in 2002 with the main purpose being to publish and curate events of experimental contemporary music and art.
As a duo NHK they have released the NHK EP on Raster-Noton (Germany) in 2008, the Special EP on Important Records (USA) in 2009, and a split 12″ with SND on PAN Records (Germany) in 2012.
