These are so beautiful. I love the mix of Japanese musical instruments with modern-day instruments. Honest … I had tears in my eyes, listening to some of these. For me, they are very emotional. A “good” emotional 🙂💖
It’s amazing how she’s grown – in the short time that she’s introduced the Japanese instruments into her compositions…the orchestral blend has become so effortless and natural – the pianos still creates the body for the piece and the rest of the instruments interweave so seamlessly and surface up front so naturally that there is no conscious blending of two musical cultures. She’s touched on something musically magical.
Hope the rest of the world clues in soon.
This is awesome! I like this, it is beautiful music. I listened a few times tonight and am impressed. I think she’s great👍
Talented and wish her all the best. ☺️🙏🏻
Really meshing the traditional classical runs with the haunting flute and traditional Japanese music, (kabuki, for lack of a better word)…
It’s like one traditional sound trying to meet and join another, and in the end, creating something really new and wonderful!
It’s so nice!! it makes me kind of nostalgic. ☺️
maybe it’s because it is the Japanese taste!?
Serenity- That is beautiful.
I immediately felt like I was in Japan. The serenity and peacefulness.
I could feel it bring me “back”, to here and now. Hope that makes sense …
I really like it!!
Various types of music are mixed.
Some parts sound like pop music but also sound like classical music. Sounds so cool !!!
Autumn leaves –
Nice music to listen to when you are in the terrace and watching the moon🌙 (with sake maybe 😋)👍🏻
If I were a producer of Japsnese mystery drama, definitely I would use this song for its theme song 👍
It sounds mysterious.
What can I say…another winner. Great blend of eastern and western instruments.
Well done !!!
