Chihei Hatakeyama: Scene tape

Chihei Hatakeyama is forever a master of muted, wintry ambient pieces and soft, distant drones. This tape is typical of his trademark sound, but the snowy melodies seem to flutter and wander a bit. It’s not as glacial as you might expect. And the two-part “Blue Reminder” is soft, intimate, and cradling, yet also quite melancholy. There aren’t too many elements here, but they all express so much. This man has dozens of albums, and he simply does not release bad music.
