Satoshi AshikawaStill Way (Wave Notation 2) ... CD
WRWTFWW (Switzerland), 1982. New Copy ... $15.99
A beautiful example of the really special sort of instrumental record that was coming out of Japan in the early 80s – music that's spare and minimal, but quite different than any sort of similar projects from other parts of the globe! Satoshi Ashikawa creates sounds in ways that resonate both with the ancient and contemporary, organic and urban, at a level that's very slow-building and striking in its careful use of sound and space – served up here on instrumentation that includes vibes from Midori Takada, piano from Tomoko Sono, and harp from Yuko Utsumi – always tuneful, but in ways that are more like a natural progression of sound than conventional music. Titles include "Prelude", "Still Park", "Still Sky", "Wrinkle", and "Image Under The Tree". CD
Also available Still Way (Wave Notation 2) ... LP 26.99

Dominique GuiotL'Univers De La Mer ... CD
Chicago 2000/WRWTFWW (Switzerland), 1978. Used ... $11.99
A beautiful album of keyboard-heavy tracks – issued by a small sound library label in France during the 70s, with a title that translates as "the universe of the sea"! As you might guess, there's a nice underwater vibe to the record – a sound that's similar to some of the other great sea-driven recordings of the late 60s and early 70s – especially the work of Sven Libaek, who really seems to inform the style here – although Dominique Guiot's approach is much more heavy on the keyboards! Yet despite the use of minimoog, mellotron, organ, clavinet, and other keys – the sound here is always warm, and never too electronic – always glowing around the edges, with a watery richness that's wonderful – offset a bit by acoustic guitar and other elements, a bit like some of the soundtracks of Francois De Roubaix. Titles include "Une Ballade Pour Une Goelette", "Wind Surf Ballad", "Iceberg En Voyage", "Alerte En Mer", "Les Emigrants De La Mer", and "Les Pingouins S'Amusent". CD

Yutaka HiroseNova + 4 (with bonus tracks) ... LP
Misawa Home/WRWTFWW (Switzerland), 1986. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $34.99
Spare soundscapes from Japanese keyboardist Yutaka Hirose – mostly composed on a variety of electronic instruments, but with a vibe that's very natural and organic overall! The music is very slow-moving, and unfolds at a quiet pace – all definitely in the tradition of the best Ambient Music projects from Brian Eno – but maybe even taking things a bit further, with a gentle sense of construction and abstraction – all blended with occasional sound effects pulled from nature, which furthers that organic quality in the music. Titles include "Taiko", "Humming The Sea", "Through The Windows", "Nova", and "Slow Sky". This edition also features four long unreleased tracks, recorded at the same time – "Old Dream Spell", "Light Which Shakes Quietly", "One Day In Summer", and "Shadow Of A Water Droplet".

Nino NardiniMusique Pour Le Futur ... LP
WRWTFWW (Switzerland), 1970. Near Mint- ... $14.99
Nino Nardini's given us some very groovy music over the years – like his famous Jungle Obsession album – but this set has the maestro working in a completely different mode – turning out some incredibly haunting sounds in a musique concrete approach! Nardini composed all the tracks, and they've got a sound that takes us back to the legendary years on the French scene of the 50s – like important early work by Pierre Henry or Pierre Schaeffer – with a mix of acoustic elements and electronics, all in a mode that's definitely pointed towards the future of the title. The style is never too atonal – Nardini does allow for some of his sense of melody to hit the music from time to time – and titles include "Station X", "La Danse Des Cometes", "Decouvert Lunaire", "Planete Mars", and "Galaxie Inconnue".

Gareth Quinn RedmondLaistigh Den Ghleo ... CD
WRWTFWW (Switzerland), 2019. New Copy ... $15.99
A contemporary record, but one that's dedicated to the older musical creations of Satoshi Ashikawa – and which has a similar mix of minimal and environmental modes! The sounds here are beautiful – like little instrumental flowers that open up slowly and tunefully – much more compelling than watered-down ambient or new age modes, and with an organic energy that's intertwined between acoustic and electric sources, so that a piano will ring out one moment, a wave of sound will flow the next – and the production style does a superb job of keeping everything in just the right space. Titles include "An Gleo", "Laistigh Den Ghleo", "Athru", "Luaineach", and "An Gairdin Uirbeach". CD

✨✧ Midori TakadaThrough The Looking Glass ... LP
RCA/WRWTFWW (Switzerland), 1983. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A beautiful album of minimal, ambient sounds – a set that would be right at home in the world of Brian Eno's Obscure Music label – or maybe some of the chamber instrumental experiments of UK artists like Penguin Cafe Orchestra or Gavin Bryers! Like the former, there's an optimistic sensibility here – a mode that shows that instrumental experimentation need not always be atonal or non-melodic – and instead can wander through the sort of territory that a more lyrical painter or poet might take on paper, but with sound. Midori Takada composed and performed all the work herself – on instrumentation that mixes acoustic and electric, reed work and percussion, keyboards and more subtle sounds. The leadoff track is titled "Mr Henri Rousseau's Dream" – which, along with the cover, might well sum up the warmth of the record – and other titles include "Crossing", "Tromp L'Oeil", and "Catastrophe E".

✨✧ Normal Brain (Yukio Fujimoto)Lady Maid ... CD
Vanity/WRWTFWW (Switzerland), 1981. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Beautiful sounds from Japanese artist Yukio Fujimoto – a record that maybe echoes some of the electro-pop styles of the time, but in a way that's much more stripped-down and creative! The set was issued in a limited pressing of 300 copies at the time – so was light years away from the mainstream – and, if anything, the music here maybe feels like some of the more abstract sides of the German new wave – maybe like instrumentals or outtakes from a Der Plan session, with a wonderful mix of playful energy and darkness around the edges – as Fujimoto works with a host of Korg and Roland electronic instruments – crafting moody magic on tracks that include "MUSIC", "Fragment", "Frottage SW", "You Are Busy I Am Easy", and "KE 300".

✨✧ Bernard ParmegianiLes Soleils De L'Ile De Paques/La Brulure De Mille Soleils ... CD
WRWTFWW (Switzerland), Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Two unreleased soundtracks from electronic genius Bernard Parmegiani – both surprisingly tuneful, although also equally abstract! The songs for Les Soleils De L'Ile De Paques are mostly in a cyclical mode – like more condensed versions of some of the long-spun keyboard experiments by Terry Riley – particularly in the years after A Rainbow In Curved Air. Bernard takes that energy and compresses it, often using it in smaller mini-cycles that are completely hypnotic – maybe as much as the image on the cover! La Brulure De Mille Soleils is equally electronic, but much more dark and spooky – with some songs that are quite short, and often at the range of aural understanding – mixed with a few longer numbers that really have a stark sense of horror! A few of the tunes often feel like a stripped-down take on more classic horror tension moments – mixed with others that have all these deep tones that feel as if they're almost inspired by Varese.
