Prolific Japanese vibraphonist, multi-percussionist and composer Masayoshi Fujita shares the second single and title track from his forthcoming album Bird Ambience — out May 28 on Erased Tapes.
The second single and title track from Masayoshi Fujita’s much anticipated new album Bird Ambience perfectly demonstrates how Fujita for the first time unites all of the different facets to his various musical outputs into one singular vision. Based around a fully improvised marimba take, Masayoshi elegantly weaves in celestial choral samples, the operatic voice of fellow Erased Tapes artist Hatis Noit and slow-motion, skeletal glitch jazz drums. This exemplifies his sparing but substantial sound on this new album, with a composition that’s equal parts beauty and noise, with plenty of space in between.
"When I was working on Bird Ambience, I had this very strong but blurred image in my mind that I wanted to capture, but had to find the right sounds. It was like when you try to remember a dream you just had, but it falls away and disappears”, recounts Fujita.
