Cloudy Cloud Calculator is a 1997 album by Takako Minekawa. It was released by Emperor Norton Records in the United States. It is Minekawa's fourth album. Cloudy Cloud Calculator was described as one of Minekawa's "finest and most unusual moments", "highly inventive, restrained pop", and "wonderfully cute, all-synthesizer musings." Minekawa played almost every instrument on the album and produced, arranged, wrote, and sang all its songs. Minekawa toured in the United States to support the album. The album Ximer, released in 1998, featured remixes of Cloudy Cloud Calculator by artists including Cornelius, Markus Popp, Sukia, and Michiko Endo (Citrus).
Famous quotes containing the words calculator, cloudy and/or cloud:
“Man is a stream whose source is hidden. Our being is descending into us from we know not whence. The most exact calculator has no prescience that somewhat incalculable may not balk the very next moment. I am constrained every moment to acknowledge a higher origin for events than the will I call mine.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson (18031882)
“The poem goes from the poets gibberish to
The gibberish of the vulgate and back again.
Does it move to and fro or is it of both
At once? Is it a luminous flittering
Or the concentration of a cloudy day?”
—Wallace Stevens (18791955)
“Hearing the low sound
of a cloud scattering rain
and thinking for an eternity
on his absent young wife,
a traveller heaved a sigh
and with a flood of tears
howled the whole night long.
Now, villagers wont let him stay
in their place anymore.”
—Amaru (c. seventh century A.D.)
