WHAT THE COVER LOOKS LIKE:
WHAT WE SAY:
A fine Sunday suitable ambient LP from Wil Bolton who took inspiration from a trip to Tokyo, Japanese art & randomly found colours before transposing the disparate influences with a minimal, but more than adequate, sound palette into this warm & welcoming listen for Krysalisound.
WHAT YOUR EARS SAY:
WHAT THE RELEASE NOTES SAY:
'Sumida Colours' is centred around environmental recordings, a toy glockenspiel, bells and furin (wind chimes), all collected during a stay in Sumida-ku, Tokyo, the birthplace of Hokusai.
The title track began by assigning six colours from the palette of Hokusai’s woodblock print ‘The Great Wave off Kanagawa’ to six notes of a musical scale. I then walked the streets of Sumida, taking a photograph each time I saw one of these colours in the details and textures of everyday scenery, and created a musical score from the order in which these colours appeared.
