"This is the new CD by Chihei Hatakeyama, who has released recordings on numerous Japanese and non-Japanese labels and established a solid reputation as an ambient drone artist. Experiencing a sense of hopelessness after the earthquake and nuclear accident of March 11, 2011, he impulsively picked up a record, quickly sampled it, and in one sitting played and recorded the three pieces on this CD. Although permeated with sorrow, this powerful work is also informed by Hatakeyama's conviction that "Where there's shadow, there's always light". Chihei Hatakeyama. Born in 1978. In addition to solo ambient drone performances using digital and analog equipment, he is active in projects including the electronic music unit Opitope with Tomoyoshi Date, Luis Nanook with Tsutomu Satachi, and the dub rock band All the Frogs Are Our Week End. He is also a sound engineer who has recorded and mastered numerous albums" (label info)
