Picture flying in over Tokyo, just close enough to see the tiny cars and buses. Little specks of people going about their daily lives. It all looks like a realistic toy model come to life and Hideki Umezawa knows just what that sounds like. Recording in his kitchen, around the apartment and in his stairwell during a light rain, he uses glass harp, tea cups and assorted household items as his tools, creating evocative atmospheres in miniature. Glass + Breath is a glimmering full length album of delicate experiments that transforms the macro into micro and holds you mesmerized from its first moments.
All pieces written recorded and produced by Hideki Umezawa. Design by Æther Bureau.
