earth - Hideyuki Hashimoto

"Calm nature and everyday life,
Plain and pure landscape,
Boundlessly simple and beautiful,
Collection of short piano pieces as if a story .."

"earth" is the Japanese composer Hideyuki Hashimoto's 1st solo album,and also the first half of the two-part work released on his own label, nlart. This remarkably gentle and lyrical album was born arising from the daily natura landscapes with the influence of musicians that creates rather "visual" music such as Mono Fontana. These melodius 14 tracks (including 3 improvised tracks) are packaged in gorgeous 6 panel digipak, beautiful artwork designed by a young designer and musician, Yu Kadowaki.
