Three Plus – “Kazesarai” – [Time Released Sound]
New release from Time Released Sound of Japanese artists led by Masashi Shiraishi, who calls his music “not music but art of sound.” Shiraishi does do most of the work: playing the piano and field recordings, as well as doing the programming, mixing and arranging. The others on here add parts to certain tracks, but it’s hardly perceptible, as the space and scene captured in each track all blend together.
Ocean sounds, nighttime, dark alleys, black rain clouds, all evaporate in the background, while the piano plays naive and optimistic, unaffected by its pessimistic demeanor.
Some of the longer tracks seem to go on and on, but it’s worth the wait. What would otherwise sound bleak and dreary, is a nice subtle touch of grace in a creepy void.
