Profoundly kaleidoscopic ambient from influential Japanese producer Susumu Yokota.
When asked about his mission in making music, the late Japanese electronic producer-composer Susumu Yokota cited Hayao Miyazaki’s classic anime film Princess Mononoke, whose tangled themes on love, beauty and nature capture the essence of life.
“I’m trying to achieve that beautiful thing,” Yokota, who died in 2015 at 54, told an interviewer in 2000. “There is always fear, rage, and ugliness existing behind beauty. I have been trying to express ki-do-ai-raku (the four emotions: joy, anger, sorrow, and happiness) through music. I would like to express even one’s hidden emotion with reality. It’s my eternal goal.”
