Midori Takada - Through The Looking Glass
Palto Flats & WRWTFWW Records make the move on this highly-anticipated reissue of Japanese percussionist Midori Takada‘s sought after and timeless ambient / minimal album “Through The Looking Glass”, originally released in 1983 by RCA Japan.
Considered a Holy Grail of Japanese music by many, “Through The Looking Glass” is Midori Takada’s first solo endeavor, a captivating four-song suite capturing her deep quests into traditional African and Asian percussive language and exploring contemplative ambient sounds with an admirably precise use of marimba. The result is alternatively ethereal and vibrant, always precise and mesmerizing, and makes for an atmospheric masterpiece and an unparalleled sonic and spiritual experience.
*comes with liner notes, with extended quotes from Ms. Takada.
