Shomyo, a liturgical Buddhist chant, was introduced from China to Japan in 736 AD. It was influential in the development of Japanese music styles. Shomyo became popular in those days due to the fact that Buddhism, chanting and music worked well together in temples. Shomyo was used in Buddhist ceremonies and services, as a ritual of comfort for the souls of the deceased and as a way to create an atmosphere of reference and mystery. It was also performed in praise of Amida Buddha…

Somewhere Between: Mutant Pop, Electronic Minimalism & Shadow Sounds of Japan 1980–1988 hovers vibe–wise between two distinct poles within Light In The Attic’s acclaimed Japan Archival Series—Kankyō Ongaku: Japanese Ambient, Environmental & New Age Music 1980–1990 and Pacific Breeze: Japanese City Pop, AOR & Boogie 1976–1986. All three albums showcase recordings produced during Japan’s soaring bubble economy of the 1980s, an era in which aesthetic visions and consumerism merged. Music echoed the nation’s prosperity and with financial abundance came the luxury to dream.

BLACK PAGE were formed in the mid 1980s as a Japanese rock quartet by Bunmei OGAWA (keyboards), Itsufumi OGAWA (guitars), Kozo SUGANUMA (drums), and Tsuneo KOMINE (bass) - already all of them had been musically professional. Regardless of their sense of humour cultivated in Osaka, they had played lots of gigs with their astonishing technique - featuring Itsufumi's complex guitar play much influenced by Alan Holdsworth, Bunmei's Emerson-ish thrilling keyboard explosion, aggressive drumming by Kozo called 'Tekazu-Oh' (in English, The King Of Full Speed … sorry no appropriate expression here), and Tsuneo's strictly precise bass-quake. In 1986 BLACK PAGE released their one and only album 'Open The Next Page', in that their terrific technical approaches could be remarkably approved by progressive freaks all around the world, but sad to say, they were disbanded soon after that.

In the Eighties NOVELA was a pivotal Japanese band that gradually turned from heavy progressive into hardrock. Their keyboardist TOSHIO EGAWA left NOVELA to start his own band with a bunch of musicians from which guitarist and singer YUKIHIRO FUJIMURA (ex-VIENNA) was the most known. The first two albums "Gerard" ('84) and "Empty Lie, Empty Dream" ('85) are classic Japanese Prog with Toshio Egawa (his mother was a piano teacher) as the Japanese answer to the great keyboard players from the UK: he has the androgyn looks from EDDIE JOBSON, the elegant virtuosity from RICK WAKEMAN and the bombastic approach from KEITH EMERSON.

It is very common to see Yuki Nakajima's output classifed as electronic music and indeed - Nakajima is a keyboardist heavilly directed in this sense. The music however is symphonic - with additional musicians providing vocals and instumentation making this an electronic symphonic product.

What is Project NAYUTA? The two vocalists sometimes snuggle up and sometimes provoke. The baseline sounds like an earthquake. A guitar that mixes hot rock spirits with cool fractional chords. Rhythm is a fusion of effort and groove at a high level. Keyboard volume is always criticized for being loud. We are pursuing new expressions in a new era. And it will be called progressive.

In the liner notes to his 2003 compilation CD moto.tronic, mercurial composer Ryuichi Sakamoto writes, "I want to break down the walls between genres, categories and cultures." Based on the restless variety of his output, he's done it. On this 14-track collection that emphasizes already available work from the late 1980s and '90s, we get soundtrack scores, solo piano, and remixes as well as syth-pop, techno, classical, and bossa nova music.
