Still Way" by Satoshi Ashikawa, one of the pioneers of Japanese environmental music, who founded the famous Sound Process label (Sound Process Design Co., Ltd.) and has brought out famous artists such as Hiroshi Yoshimura, Oscilation Circuit, and Satsuki Shibano, has been reissued on CD and LP! Finally, the new age revival/domestic ambient reevaluation has come to an end! Originally interested in contemporary music when he was in college, he worked at Art Vivant, a store specializing in art books and contemporary music, and has been active in experimental performances since the late 70s, collaborating with Mamoru Fujieda, Midori Takada, and Hiroshi Yoshimura. The following year, he passed away at the age of 30. This album has a clear concept of ambient music in the lineage of Brian Eno, and was created as a work that can be listened to casually as a "sound landscape" or "sound object. Four players, including Midori Takada, perform music composed by Satoshi Ashikawa. Although the composition varies from piece to piece, piano, harp, and vibraphone are used. It is a beautiful work that depicts an emotionally rich landscape that passes through contemporary/minimal music and is very simple, but also has the beauty of a Japanese pull. In his own words, the music is like a series of still moments. The cover design is by Hiroshi Yoshimura. Liner notes by Midori Takada, Satoshi Ashikawa and Gareth Quinn Redmond are included.
