Music Interiors

musicinteriorsweb

Mix of Japanese new-age/ambient/minimalist music, mostly emanating from the corporate infrastructure of the 1980s asset bubble. FM synthesis, prefab “lifestyle” soundscapes and the illusion of nature in a hyper-urban environment.

Toshifumi Hinata – “Colored Air” from Reality in Love
Midori Takada – “Mr. Henri Rousseau’s Dream” from Through the Looking Glass

Yutaka Hirose – “Nova” from Sound Scape 2: Nova
Shiho Yabuki ‎– “Tomoshibi” from The Body Is A Message Of The Universe
Inoyama Land ‎– “Mizue” from Danzindan-Pojidon

  2. OvO on January 24th, 2013

    no one can do it better

  3. M Kitchell on January 24th, 2013

    what is the song that starts at 24:55? I’m obsessed with it and not very good at following the track listing.

  4. ryan chittick on January 24th, 2013

    @ m kitchell – that’s the inoyama land track.

  5. Scott Goodwin on January 24th, 2013

    Had no idea that Hosono did music for a Muji CD. Funny.

  6. gtd on January 25th, 2013

    thanks! nice to see you dropped some Interior in there.
    i love that album.

  7. bcr on January 27th, 2013

    love it. thanx so much.

  8. Simon on January 29th, 2013

    I am absolutely loving this, thanks so much. Such evocative music – makes me want to get hold of all the original works, but I expect they’re quite hard to find now, are they?

  9. Maxwell on January 29th, 2013

    Physically? Yes: http://www.ln-cc.com/icat/organicmusic

    Digitally, not so tough.

  10. Spencer on January 29th, 2013

    and yet not a single one of these came from the ln-cc sale…

    both the interior LP and yas kaz LP had US releases that are pretty easy to turn up in the new age bins. the others are findable but only if you’re shopping at disc union

  11. GTD on February 1st, 2013

    im loving this mix, great stuff!
    any chance you could share the 2 volumes of Yoshio Ojima Une Collection Des Chainons with us? id love to hear those in full.

  12. Dronesaur on February 10th, 2013

    Do you have that Hiroshi Yoshimura album in its entirety? If so, I would love you forever if you could share that, it seems impossible to find elsewhere based on the sample, it seems like something that I’ve been needing for a very long time.

  13. richie on February 10th, 2013

    thank you for this mix i really needed it thank you

  14. Spencer on February 11th, 2013

    there’s two yoshimura albums in the mix, which are you after? i can up “music for nine postcards” easily as i already have it digitized. i’ll get to the others one of these days! got four different LPs by him and they’re all great.

    worth noting that he was a member of taj mahal travellers (which is probably why you sometimes see his records listed as “fluxus” by people trying to hustle them)…

  15. Spencer on February 11th, 2013

    music for nine postcards:

    btw, i need the “pier & loft” cassette if anyone out there in the ether has a copy. will pay handsomely.

  16. jeff on February 15th, 2013

    hi spencer,

    i would appreciate green, or any other early hiroshi yoshimura stuff. would love to do a feature on him after hideki matsutake / isao tomita already in the queue. i don’t have enough of his music to do one properly yet.

    will get around to a big one on all the yen manifold stuff eventually :)

  17. james burling on February 27th, 2013

    this is an absolutely beautiful mix thank you so much for doing this and please do more if you can!!!! i’ve been listening to it constantly the last few days i love this stuff

  18. James on April 17th, 2013

    What’s the track that starts around 17:30 – is that Yas Kaz?

    Awesome mix!

  19. Spencer on May 15th, 2013

    17:30 is Yutaka Hirose – “Nova”

  20. Josias Galindo on June 29th, 2013

    hello, would love to hear your thoughts on a track I released on soundcloud

    Do you have any more information on Kenji Furukawa – “(Untitled Water Recording) from Sound Stream: Mizu”? I can’t seem to find any information on this release.
