Masahiro Sugaya
Horizon Volume 1

Masahiro Sugaya is barely known outside of his native Japan but Empire of Signs want to change all that with this introduction into his works. He has straddled the worlds of acoustic and experimental composition, jazz and future thinking computerised sounds in a long career which began in the 1980s. This remastered collection is a good place to start for newbies to his music and will appeal to fans of Hiroshi Yoshimura and the Lights In The Attic compilation Japanese Ambient, Environmental & New Age Music 1980-1990 on which Sugaya appeared.

Inoyama Land
Commissions: 1977-2000

Bloody hell. Makoto Inoue and Yasushi Yamashita have been making Ambient and New Age sounds for over four decades as Inoyama Land (see what they did there?) Here is a collection spanning the years 1977 to 2000 and this remastered LP perfectly exemplifies the nostalgic and pastoral synthesizer- led sound that has become their trademark. Comes with interview, liner notes and photos. Essential for all fans of transcendental new age and lost documents.
