Produktinformationen "Yutaka Hirose - Nova + 4"
WRWTFWW Records veröffentlicht eines der faszinierendsten japanischen Ambient-Alben, produziert 1986 als Soundscape für Fertighäuser.

WRWTFWW Records is blissful to announce the expanded reissue of one of the most fascinating Japanese ambient/environmental albums ever made, NOVA + 4 by Yutaka Hirose. The double LP includes the album known as Soundscape 2: Nova, sourced from its original masters, minutes of never-released-before recordings. It comes in a beautiful gatefold sleeve, packed with liner notes from the artist in Englis as well as 50h and Japanese. NOVA + 4 is also available on double digipack CD.

Initially released in 1986 as part of the Soundscape series* commissioned by Misawa Home Corporation for use in their prefabricated houses, Yutaka Hirose’s NOVA has grown to become a mythical piece of the Japanese minimalist/ambient/environmental scene of the eighties. Initiated around the enchanting landscapes of the two first tracks recorded for the project, Nova and Epilogue, Yutaka Hirose’s magnum opus serenely blends vintage synth with nature sounds, exploring soothing palettes and organic backdrops. For Slow Sky, Hirose explains he went for a pointillism-like sound, and tried to express a scenery of awakening, where the portal of a heart is opening up, while on Humming The Sea, he tried to compose a kind of music that expresses the daily, lazy life of child-like innocence in a summer vacation in some small town.

The bonus LP gathers four long unreleased pieces created around the same period of time for installations, described by Yutaka Hirose as not music per se but rather sound sculptures, and including the haunting Shadow Of A Water Droplet which was recorded for an Ikebana exhibition.

All in all, NOVA + 4 is a transcendent experience of nature in the urban context, an oeuvre which, much like Midori Takada’s Through The Looking Glass or Satoshi Ashikawa’s Still Way, holds the power to appease the soul in turbulent times. As one inspired YouTube commenter once said when describing Yutaka Hirose’s masterstroke: I can't tell if the birds are singing inside or outside! Thank you!

*The Soundscape series also includes Hiroshi Yoshimura's Surround album.
