Originally set in motion as part of the Hibernate collaborative series back in 2012, ‘Falling Sun’ is the full length album from Chihei Hatekeyama and Good Weather for an Airstrike. An abundance of ideas came about from this pairing, resulting in a collection of atmospheric pieces.
Both artists boast previous form as part of the Hibernate family. Tokyo based Chihei Hatekayama has produced numerous solo works as well as his work with Tomoyoshi Date, under the name Opitope. His work uses various acoustic instruments such as guitar, vibraphone and piano, combined with electronic processing. Good Weather for an Airstrike, aka Tom Honey, first began experimenting with sound as a way to alleviate the symptoms of Tinnitus. His 2012 Hibernate album ‘Underneath the Stars’ was a collection of relaxing pieces, designed to induce a sleepy state. Together they have produced a beautiful album of textural field recordings and somnambulist instrumentation.
