Sachi Kobayashi – Imaginary Trip CS

In stock


Tokyo-based producer Sachi Kobayashi composed ๐ผ๐‘š๐‘Ž๐‘”๐‘–๐‘›๐‘Ž๐‘Ÿ๐‘ฆ ๐‘‡๐‘Ÿ๐‘–๐‘ as a travelogue: in her words, “[to] help listeners to imagine various aspects of Japan”. Primarily recorded at her home studio, Kobayashi leisurely but exactingly dis- and re-assembles minute sounds; magnifying dust motes drifting by a sun-lit window. ๐ผ๐‘š๐‘Ž๐‘”๐‘–๐‘›๐‘Ž๐‘Ÿ๐‘ฆ ๐‘‡๐‘Ÿ๐‘–๐‘ also highlights minimalist melodies informed by choral training, adding a gentle gauze. Combined with surgical sound design, the album is as much a hallucinatory inner journey as a terrestrial one – which the b-side emphasizes with alternate (dub?) versions of each track: a dream within a dream.

recorded by Sachi Kobayashi at home – Saitama, Japan, Oct. 2020
