THING OF THE DAY, JANUARY 7th – Monday. bloody Monday, could start the week with another un-need string of nonsenseness, yeastie girls, stray cats, bangs, exclamation marks and England mostly sleeping in to the new year or alternatively with rather peacefully beautiful animated taste of things to come from Masayoshi Fujita, from his forthcoming album Forest…
MASAYOSHI FUJITA – Story of Forest
“Stories is the first vibraphone solo album by Berlin-based Japanese artist Masayoshi Fujita, best known under his alter ego el fog, and for his internationally acclaimed collaboration Bird, Lake, Objects with Jan Jelinek. Masayoshi Fujita’s style of solo vibraphone is uniquely inspired by classic and jazz music. In this beautiful album, in additional to some gorgeous strings and bowings, he also introduced some ingenious ideas in making unique sounds, like the usage of bead and aluminium foil on his vibraphone, like a prepared instrument. As such, “Stories” is a wonderful result of the beautiful vibration (of which the name Vibraphone came from) of all the delicate sounds produced in this album. They are poetic, they are melancholic, and they are lushly emotional.” so reads the press release, id you like what you see and hear then here comes the link to take you exploring more. The album is released worldwide on January 21st on the respected Flau label.
