KESHIKI

"keshiki" (landscapes) explores evocative soundscapes, without sticking to the conventional length of songs. Some of them are small vignettes, while others take time to develop their character. Almost all were composed on the OP-1, in a short time to keep them fresh. Post production was kept to minimal. (October 2020)
