Though not many Japanese citizens would know him by name, Takashi Kokubo is one of the nation’s most-listened-to composers. This is due to the fact that, among commissions that include work for anime films and environmental music, he has also come up with both a well-known phone alert sound to warn people of imminent earthquakes and a common jingle that goes with contactless payments. Back in 1987 he composed a tie-in score to a high-end Sanyo air conditioner entitled Get At The Wave. The music - made with the intention of transporting the listener away from the domestic realm to a land of gentle breezes and palm trees - has since become a long-sought-after work of work of Balearic ambience. Here it is, repackaged with a new B-side, by Lag Records under the title A Dream Sails Out To Sea.
