Midori Takada : Through the Looking Glass We Release Whatever The Fuck We Want Records
Mr. Henri Rousseau’s Dream
Reissue of this ultra-rare and timeless ambient / minimal album by Japanese percussionist Midori Takada, 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-track 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.
