Sonne und Wasser is the new album by Japanese minimalist composer H. Takahashi. His aim was to mimic the growth of a plant with music. The four tracks on the album all grow, slowly, from the first, with similar tone and chord progressions. He takes his inspiration from minimalist and ambient masters such as Hiroshi Yoshimura and Satoshi Ashikawa, Erik Satie, John Cage, Brian Eno and Roedelius. Sonne und Wasser is the follow-up to 2017’s Raum.
