Happy to announce about my next release Gekko ( 月光) on 27 October , Spotify and any other music platforms where you stream music.

The whole piece is available at this link on my website.Here is the teaser new piece! Thank you so much as always for dropping by my music.

It’s been exactly one month since my album “Shonan Twilight” was purchased by Sawa Internal Medicine Diabetes Clinic. So, I asked for Dr. Sawa’s honest impressions of introducing my music to his Diabetes Clinic.

The following are the words of the director, Mr. Sawa.

“It’s a very beautiful album. The insertion of natural sound effects goes well with the music. The performance is improvised, the melody progresses, and the sometimes stunning note jumps are impressive. George Winston’s album is also played at our hospital as it’s so-called healing music, but when compared, Shonan Twilight gives the true  impression of a “Japanese” atmosphere.

Thank you for meeting me and introducing me to such a good album.”

Thank you Dr. Sawa! 🙂

Dr. Sawa’s impressions reminded me of my musical life. For over 20 years, I have played mainly in overseas 5-star hotels throughout Asia and in recent years, overseas luxury cruise ships and have performed in 32 countries around the world.

In the past, I have created music for the purpose of healing the hearts of those with my unique live performance style that instantly reads and improvises music that matches the situation and atmosphere of the venue. In the past when I performed in a foreign land, I listen to the perspectives of the people in that country.Needless to say, it was a great opportunity to set out with my music background as Japan.

The career I once cultivated has greatly contributed to the music production I am currently compossing.

For that reason, I feel a special thanks in the words of Dr. Sawa.

It was a great moment of gratitude that made me feel that what I have been doing so far is finally useful for some people.

I am deeply grateful for this. 😊

 

It was my plan that my album “Shonan Twilight”, which was completed with the image of music that helps relieves stress and give comfort.

Yuta Hoshitani, the director of the medical clinic  “Hoshiya Dental Clinic” , who downloaded and purchased my album “Shonan Twilight” the other day, sent me such a wonderful email.

“I felt that it fits the concept of our clinic because it feels comfortable in my ears and I can relax. It feels calm from movement to quiet. I like classical music in the hospital, especially Debussy and Erik Satie. I’m playing it, but I felt that Akiko’s music would lead to healing for the patient. At Hoshiya Dental Clinic, we always think about what we can do to help anxious patients, and do our best to listen to their feelings and stay close to them. We are here”.

In the first place, Dr. Yuta Hoshiya emphasizes that the highest priority is to reduce the pain of treatment as much as possible.

“Along with that, you can play soothing music, devise ways to prevent the smell of chemicals, decorate paintings, create a courtyard and visually soften in a healing space. We are working to create a medical environment that is kind to the five senses of patients”.

I am very honored and grateful that my 🎹 music is playing in a medical environment where such wonderful efforts are being realized. 😊

 

Thrilled to announce I will be performing my original pieces, popular seasons covers and Christmas music at The Royal Park Hotel 70F Sky lounge Sirius on December 25, 2020. Music 🎹 begins at 6:00pm and will go until 11:00pm.

Absolutely thrilled at having overseas sales for my Modern Classical double CD “Shonan Twilight”.

A 🇨🇦 Canadian fan recently received my double CD and she tells me that her and her husband love my music. She plays it often when cooking a feast or when she’s just relaxing on the patio with a glass of red wine🍷.

Thank you so much! 🙂
