Processus MonomaniaK Je pense que les amateurs d'Erik Satie ou des compositions au piano d'Aphex Twin ne resteront pas insensibles aux 10 titres qui composent cet album fragile et low-fi. Akira Kosemura est une grande figure de l'ambient japonais qui croise à merveille recherches électroniques et mélodies classiques.
Sur cet album, le temps fait une pause, on écoute autant les sons que les silences, tout se joue dans une paisible harmonie. Favorite track: Luna.

Jaehee Hwang I’ve been happiest in a long while, while listening to your music, especially foe. It made me think that life is meaningless without art and music. It gives so much meaning and beauty-you don’t have to do anything, or produce anything, you can just exist, and the piece of music gives meaning to void... As an artist (and an exhausted one), I am so happy I have this luxury to consume readymade music like this, without needing to create. A piece of music I don’t feel the urge to fix,... no need to fix... perfect in its imperfectness, it is not as common as you may think.

I believe music is what forms who you are. This gentle peace is becoming a part of me. It has helped me through my severe PTSD, and gave great joy. Great peace to listen to with candles, rain, and midnight. Thank you for making this album.

Akira Kosemura - One Day

Ten pieces of improvisational piano solo
As collecting the dusts in your heart
Sound overflows naturally
Arise and transforming
Own personal music composed in one afternoon

This is a new album released just three months later his latest original full album “MOMENTARY: Memories of The Beginning” was released after five years blank. It is a collection of improvisational piano solo works with full of peaceful warmth.
In one afternoon, he recorded these pieces while he was playing with an old piano at his family’s home which he used to play since childhood, and it turned out to be a very personal album. An album is filled with warmth in homey feeling, and a beautiful solo works composed with unique maturity as a contemporary pianist.
The album was mastered by Mandy Parnell, a British engineer who has worked with Bjork, Aphex Twin, Max Richter etc. Monaural recording decorates a simple beauty in sound.
