Contrasting another sense of stillness this resolutely beautiful work from Tokyo artist Chihei Hatakeyama pursues its purpose via the evolution of looped sounds. The result is a stunning one piercing the passage of time as seconds drift by. Again this album is the sum of its parts, or to put that another way forms part of one whole. The listening experience is immersive, as all notable succession of sounds should be, and its personal reflections tell their own life-story. Quietly and yet with great impact. The magic of music is the connection it enables across the globe and this tale of lucid movements transports the listener to elsewhere entirely. A sublime experience.
