2006, Part Seventeen

Kazumasa Hashimoto - Gllia (2006)

Continuing in my recent Japanophilia, Kazumasa Hashimoto's Gllia caught my ear with its extremely warm organic instrumentation pastiches, pieced together with a skill and meticulousness rarely found in electronic composition. Hashimoto shapes oboes, strings, xylophones, piano, guitar and other vehicles of relative instrumental obscurity into a fluffy pillow of pleasant noise, laying computer voice generators and other vocal manipulations onto that. It's a really cool listen, especially with some headphones. Here's some songs:
