Amazing Asian Ambient.

This Thursday night (May 17) from 9 pm tune in to SoundScape on YVFM 99.1 for some great ambient music. You can also get it streamed live from the website.

We will be able to enjoy the music of Susumu Yokota. Yokota is well known in the English-speaking independent music scene for his albums of experimental ambient music. However, he has also had a long career as a house music DJ and has released several highly-regarded albums of house music.

We will also have a piece by Toru Takemitsu, a Japanese composer and writer on aesthetics and music theory, who drew from a wide range of influences, including jazz, popular music, avant-garde procedures and traditional Japanese music, in a harmonic idiom largely derived from the music of Claude Debussy and Olivier Messiaen.

Riley Lee, altho Australian, is a master of oriental ambient, and we will play two of his tracks, as well as a piece by Tetsu Inoue.

This week's Goon Show will be 'The Scarlet Capsule'.
