They say:


Juta Takahashi

 

Emotion and Melody

Such sublime and serene music is that of Japanese artist Juta Takahashi. Inspired by Eno, Budd, and Namlook, you can hear their influences in his music within a framework that is uniquely Juta's. Lush calm is often the landscape of Juta's work, but occasionally the music steers into zones a bit more frentic and experimental.

Takahashi's compositions mainly consist of improvisation, rather than programming. Juta says he enjoys using both analog and digital synthesizers to compose, but prefers the warm sound of analog. His first commercial album was released in 2007. Takahashi now has nine albums under his belt. Truly a must-listen, check out the music of Juta Takahashi!

Very, very sad news. Pete Namlook, one of the maestri of electronic/ambient music, passed away on November 8.

 

His music has been enormous inspiration to me. On the other hand, I've been encouraged by his success as an independent musician and a producer. I feel I've lost a pillar of support...

Thank you so much, Pete. RIP

My top 3 favorites from him:
1. Silence V
2. Namlook V
3. Seasons Greetings - Winter

And, I must refer to a superb collaboration with Tetsu Inoue:

Forrest Fang, a multi-instrumentalist and composer from US, will release his latest album, "Animism" on June 19, 2012 from Projekt. The music fuses timeless acoustic instruments with a modern fractal ambient sound. Highly recommended.

 

 

 

I'd like to recommend "Unbound", large-scale ambient soundscapes, to you as well.

 

 

Please visit his website, and you'll find supreme ambient music.

Dear ambient music lovers,

The Northeast of Japan was struck by huge earthquakes on March 11. Many cities and towns along the coastline were completely destroyed and nearly twenty thousand of people were sacrificed by huge tsunamis. Very fortunately, I am safe.

Lunisolar Studio and its instruments were damaged. However, I will certainly return to music someday at any cost!

Thank you very much for your deep thoughts and prayers for us. They make us so reassured and brave!

Best wishes,

- Juta Takahashi
