Captivating collages of found sounds, field recordings, electronic ambience and piano. At times soothing, at times unnerving, these quiet and spellbinding moments are truly special and unique.
Shuta Hiraki returns with these cinematic musical collages created mainly with old LP records left by his mother in the warehouse, mixing her own recordings of old upright detuned piano from the Nagasaki Sound Bath Museum with field recordings recorded on cassette.
Perfect amalgam between classical music, traditional Japanese music where flute and piano builds a great bridge to an enigmatic paradise that sometimes darkens and then shines again.
A brilliant treasure for lovers of the sound of tragedy.
“For what be buried in oblivion.”
