Chihei Hatakeyama + Hakobune
The Fall Rises

Dual guitar drone sessions from Japanese ambient masters Chihei Hatakeyama and Hakobune.

Grace

This is the latest album from impossi-say Japanese composer Chihei Hatakeyama and was made as a companion to his recent tour of western Japan.

Requiem for Black Night and Earth Spiders

Chihei Hatakeyama
Moon Light Reflecting Over Mountains

Chihei Hatakeyama, of Tokyo, produces harmonically rich droning ambience, just the kind of thing that floats the Room40 label’s boat.

Mist

Chihei Hatakeyama's ambient crackle continues its eternal ebb and flow, with recent effort Too Much Sadness fading into the even more recent Mist.

Chihei Hatakeyama
A Long Journey

One of the toppermost contemporary ambient masters must surely be Chihei Hatakeyama, a man who, on new CD 'A Long Journey', translates his feelings and passion for the Shinto religion into gently cascading sound sculptures and purest waves of morphing audio bliss. He talks about how with Shinto, everything has a spirit, and indeed his lush, texture...view item »

Too Much Sadness

Ambient that has just enough melody and modulation to simulate the movements of your breaking heart. Chihei Hatakeyama's Too Much Sadness shimmers and lets tragic sounds that resemble vocals swim in the distance, a la Grouper in her Alien Observer era. Hatakey...view item »

Chihei Hatakeyama and Good Weather For An Airstrike
Falling Sun

Getting Chihei Hatakeyama to play on your record is a sure-fire way to make things just that little bit more serene, his work sounding potently organic through the use of acoustic guitars, piano motifs and little electronic flourishes. On Falling Sun, he joins forces with the equally hushed Good Weather For An A...view item »


Chihei Hatakeyama
Bare Strata

There are two different editions of this CD to choose from. One is a regular price and comes in a digipak with a nice photo of some birds by Fabio Orsi on it, while the other is a bit more expensive and comes in a rather lovely looking box made from paulownia wood, from a tiny limited run of just 20 copies!

Variations

This week we got a coupla tasty releases on the super reliable Soundscaping label. Based in Oslo they are knowledge gatherers. I always always trust a label which releases a handful of things a year. They don't rush releases, they don't try and cram as many down your neck as possible (though I appreciate labels have to make a living!). But the o...view item »

Minima Moralia

Finally, new on Kranky is 'Minima Moralia' by Chihei Hatakeyama. This is full of drones and twinkles. Each track pulls the listener in and is almost trance inducing.
