- Variations by Chihei Hatakeyama
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 ones who release 2-3 things a year are nearly always good. They take their time over each release and everything about it done perfectly. Soundscaping is one of those labels. They released one album in 2008 (Christophe Bailieau) and a Celer CD earlier this year. This release is by Chihei Hatakayama . You're probably familiar with his sound palate which he doesn't drift too far away. This album sees him fulfilling your processed drone/ soundscape fantasies with another album of bliss. A lot of it sounds quite spiritual and uplifting. Listening closely to it you can hear the different textures and layers which build up to make the tracks. There's plenty going on to get absorbed into and even if you just want to listen to it on a surface level then it's just lovely. Excellent!!
