In stock


Official reissue of Takashi Kokubo essential ambient/minimal/environmental album: "A musical expressions that shatters the old values". Originally released on King Records in 1985, composed and written by Takashi Kokubo. Includes liner notes of an interview made with the artist. Remastered by Music Matters Mastering from source material. Pressed by Pallas.

Takashi Kokubo makes archetypal Japanese ambient, new age and experimental synth sounds. But not only that, he also created the nationally-used mobile phone earthquake alert sound and designed credit card payment jingles that pervade all of Japanese society. His sound, then, is very much the sound of the Far East. It has been that way since at least this album came out back in 1985. It's a classic of the genre, hard to find and hugely expensive if you do. This full scale reissue sinks you into his world of distant chimes, eerie chords and spring-time soundtracking that is pure as ice.
