Hugh K A perfect counterpoint to a modern anxiety and negative mood. Within seconds each track fills the space it's fluid sound and bridges you between yourself and your surroundings. Low Power doesn't try to fool you with a false journey to uplift you, merely gets you to accept everything is actually okay with yourself.

kreationkaze deeply calming music. I use it as a relaxation tool when I'm angry or after a long gym session to keep my emotions level. Also dust reminds me of the music used in the cowboy bebop movie when they introduce Vincent's backstory, which is always a winner. Favorite track: Dust.

about

H.Takahashi, Tokyo based Architect and sound designer.
‘Low Power’ draws strands of Minimalism from the Japanese Minimalist works from the likes of Hiroshi Yoshimura and Satoshi Ashikawa, to masters such as Erik Satie and John Cage, and Ambient leaders Brian Eno and Roedelius.
His sound sometimes seems to be drizzling like rain, but still the feeling of refreshing sounds sinks pleasantly inside the body like a shower bathed after running 100 meters with full power.
A genuine melody gives a feeling that drifts in the water.
The philosophy of simple timbre composition and placement makes me feel the composition of the Japanese garden and the minimalism of Sen no Rikyu.

やけのはら、P-RUFFらとのユニットUNKNOWN MEも話題となり、Where To Now?からの作品でも海外を含め高い評価をえた日本人アンビエント作家"H.Takahashi"の新作『Low Power』がWhite Paddy MOuntainから登場!!
『Low Power』はこれまでのH.Takahashiの作品がそうだったように、吉村弘、芦川聡などの日本のアンビエントミュージックの伝統を感じさせつつ、エリック・サティやブライアン・イーノなどの正統派アンビエントの歴史的解釈をふまえ、そこに独自のミニマルな美学を刻み込んだ金字塔的なアルバムとなった。時にしとしと降る小雨のような、それでいて清涼感溢れる音の粒は100m走を全力で走った後に浴びるシャワーのように体内に心地よく沈み込む。地の果てから届くような、ものうげなメロディは、水中の中で漂うような感触を与え、シンプルな音色構成と配置の妙は日本庭園の哲学や千利休的なミニマリズムを感じさせる。音の向こうに叙情的な景色を呼びおこすアンビエントの名盤がここに誕生した。
