Hiroshi Yoshimura
Air in Resort
Shiseido/Air Records 1984

Forest Side
1. 森の夜明け
2. 小川にそって
3. 小鳥たこちのカフェ

Sea Side
1. きらめく海
2. カモメの永平線
3. 砂の星

Another beautiful ambient LP from Yoshimura, commission by the Shiseido cosmetic corporation to promote a forest-scented perfume (the LP comes in a plastic bag sealed with it’s scent). Had to use a bit of noise reduction due to the poor pressing quality (dreaded white vinyl) but it should still be plenty enjoyable.

Jefre Cantu-Ledesma & Liz Harris – The Glass House – New Canaan, CT – Oct 4th. 0

Glass House at Dawn Architect Philip Johnson 1949

The Glass House presents Night Sounds, a new performance series that parallels the Night (1947 – 2015) on-site sculpture-in-residence program. Guests will join the performer, Night guest-curator Jordan Stein, and Glass House Director Henry Urbach for a live on-site performance and reception. A new artist whose work engages with the current sculpture will be selected to perform with each of the seven iterations of the Night (1947–2015) exhibition, a series of works by contemporary artists that contend with the legacy of Alberto Giacometti’s absent sculpture Night and Johnson’s architectural opus. Night (1947 – 2015) and Night Soundscontribute to the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s larger goal of re-imaging historic sites for the 21st century by bringing catalytic change to its sites around the country.  The guiding principles of this initiative are that historic sites must be dynamic, relevant, and evolving and that they must foster an understanding and appreciation of history and culture that is critical, layered, and sensory. Night Sounds is coordinated by Jordan Stein. Each performance is documented by Derrick Belcham, who will produce a short film that will be made available online free of charge. Photo by Andrew Romer Photography.
