Sachi Kobayashi – Imaginary Trip CS


What our staff has to say: “Dream like electronic music from Japan. Another huge release from Enmossed x Psychic Liberation. We somehow still have a couple copies! Long sold out from both labels…” – Alex

Tokyo-based producer Sachi Kobayashi composed πΌπ‘šπ‘Žπ‘”π‘–π‘›π‘Žπ‘Ÿπ‘¦ π‘‡π‘Ÿπ‘–π‘ as a travelogue: in her words, “[to] help listeners to imagine various aspects of Japan”. Primarily recorded at her home studio, Kobayashi leisurely but exactingly dis- and re-assembles minute sounds; magnifying dust motes drifting by a sun-lit window. πΌπ‘šπ‘Žπ‘”π‘–π‘›π‘Žπ‘Ÿπ‘¦ π‘‡π‘Ÿπ‘–π‘ also highlights minimalist melodies informed by choral training, adding a gentle gauze. Combined with surgical sound design, the album is as much a hallucinatory inner journey as a terrestrial one – which the b-side emphasizes with alternate (dub?) versions of each track: a dream within a dream.
