Hakobune
Obelisk

Warm ambient music and a nice photograph: what more could you feasibly need to know? Hakobune has been at it for years and has made some of the loveliest, mildly shimmering drone there is, for Constellation Tatsu and elsewhere. he releases Obelisk on Polar Seas Recordings, using gorgeously processed guitar. 

Hakobune
Betelgeuse

Prepare for forty-five minutes of blissed-out ambience from the Hakobune Industries Blissed-out Ambience Bot 3000. Rather than a reference to the rather wacky Tim Burton film, the title Betelgeuse is of course in honour of the Orionian star. You’re in for a celestial, glistening and weightless journey across space.

Chihei Hatakeyama + Hakobune
The Fall Rises

Dual guitar drone sessions from Japanese ambient masters Chihei Hatakeyama and Hakobune. Chords that are so drawn out and sustained through waves of reverb that the records title is spot on, glacial chords seem to constantly be falling, or building around but never meet an end. There are tones of The Stranger and Barn Owl in there. Stunning and infinite.

Hakobune
All My Regret For Nothing Remembered

Why mess around with opaque references when naming your label? Why not just call it what it is, like the good people at Holland’s new Warm Drone Label have done? All My Regret For Nothing Remembered , by Japanese artist Hakobune, is the label’s very first release, and I am pleased to report that it does exactly what it says on the tin. Edition of 200 cassettes.

Hakobune
Apsidal Motion

Japanese musician Hakobune takes his electric guitar and turns it into long-form slabs of ambient tone-drift. Apsidal Motion apparently came into being thanks to the inspiring nature of a starlit sky in rural Japan: certainly, this could very comfortably soundtrack a late-night session of mental release. Out on White Paddy Mountain.

Hakobune & Dirk Serries
Obscured By Beams Of Sorrow

Obscured By Beams Of Sorrow is a great title for a drone collaboration isn’t it? Potently evocative and suggestive of haze. This album results from the meeting of Hakobune and Dirk Serries, both experienced in the field of experimental ambience, and evidently both quite good at working with others! Japanese CD release on White Paddy Mountain.

Chihei Hatakeyama + Hakobune
It is, it isn't


Hakobune
Seamless and Here

Hakobune is a master and academic of instrumental music at this point, having released enough music for a full archive, dabbling in drone, ambient and the space between where they intersect. His works are often more melodious than that of the average drone merchant, though 'Seamless and Here' is more of a sustained collection, shimmering with the patience and meditation of Stars of the Lid.
