Once upon a time I actually did a gig or two
with the great bass player and multi-instrumentalist and
composer and improvisor Kato Hideki. His music for the documentary
film El Viaje de Monalisa is our 595th
Soundtrack of the Week.
This mood and gentle, slow not-quite pulse are continued in
"Transformer", a dreamy and soothing piece that has a hint of possible danger.
This mood and gentle, slow not-quite pulse are continued in "Transformer", a dreamy and soothing piece that has a hint of possible danger.Things pick up after this with the rock instrumental "Someone Wants Sex, Someone Wants Money". This has a great groove with some snarly guitar work. The atmosphere becomes mellow again with "Poetry", the most textural and ethereal piece on the record. There are long tones that sound like pastels and some delicate crystalline voices that ease in and out of the landscape. The record concludes with "Reflexion", a gently pulsating piece with delicate angelic sounds floating above a slightly fuzzy and softly driving bass line. The overall mood is hopeful.
