Double LP version. Aki Tsuyuko may be best known on this side of the planet as the voice for Nobukazu Takemura, but she has been making her own music quietly and unassumingly for the last few years. Tsuyuko's own music is subdued, and more introspective that what is expected from the current generation of Japanese electronic music.
Instead of the sample-crazed, cartoon-pitched high speed cacophony of say, someone like Space Ponch, the sound of Ongakushitsu is rooted in more organic sounds. Fender Rhodes, disconnected flutes, slow melodies, and an Ash Ra sense of space. If anything, Ongakushitsu sounds like the afterhour extrapolations of a chanteuse who thinks everyone's gone home for the evening. Previously issued on Childisc in Japan.
