Works of the great Somei Satoh - superb mystic and meditative harmonics originally release by ALM and now fully reissued.

Two major pieces from Somei Satoh's discography.

EMERALD TABLET - recorded at the NHK Studio of Electronic Music in 1978, Satoh's unique take on musique concrète and tape music, sound harmonics made up of tubular bell, cymbals, and 'kin' (Buddhist standing bell) only, overdubbed to infinity.

ECHOES - composed for the "Mist, Sound, and Light Festival," a 10-day event organized by the hot spring tourist association of Kawaji, Tochigi Prefecture, held on May 20-29, 1981. Played at the Kawaji hot spring's Ojika river valley - 8 gigantic loudspeakers set up on hills surrounding the stream, with music played through an octuple channel-tape system. A combined length of cables connected with the loudspeakers exceeding one kilometers.

Fall into the ambient vastness, let yourself go.
