Hiroshi Yoshimura – Air in Resort

Hiroshi Yoshimura
Air in Resort
Style: Ambient
Label: Shiseido
Catalog Number: SSD-1206
Released: 1984, 80's
Stream:

“Kankyō ongaku,” Japanese for “environmental music,” was a popular genre of functional ambient music in Japan in the 80’s led by electronic artists Hiroshi Yoshimura, Takashi Kokubo, Joe Hisaishi, Toshifumi Hinata, Jun Fukamachi, among others. Air in Resort is a quintessential record of the genre with a unique story – it was originally commissioned by Shiseido in 1984 to be released as an “amenity record” to promote their new perfume with the same title. The package includes a green bag with the AIR logo and white vinyl housed in a transparent-yellow poly inner sleeve with a single drop of the perfume inside. Well-preserved copies of this record retain the original “fresh and natural resort” perfume smell.
