This is a collection of works by Asuna, the young minimal composer from Japan. With a sound said to change the way you view the world around you, he represents another side of the Japanese underground; in ways completely separate, yet somehow intimately linked to artists like Killerbong.
Until this release, his work has mainly consisted of solo works that utilize the sound of an old, dusty organ to create simple, transient music that calls to mind such simple pleasantries as the changing of the seasons. In contrast, this release centers around an ensemble consisting of guitar, piano and clarinet, often mixed with electronics to create a collection of short, pastoral songs. In doing so he has made his melodies are clearer, and his sound more fleshed out. Like a carefully woven tapestry, this is a music which gently invites you to delve deeper.
