about

“Reflection Primal” is the debut album of Saburo Ubukata, a Japanese electronic artist and composer from Tokyo, Japan.
He is also an expert in the field of acoustics, and is involved in the developement of acoustics systems.
Piano is the instrument which brung him into sound and music, and is the instrument which he mainly used to create this
stunningly beautiful album. He aims to give listeneres an experiece which would enable them to recall each of their scenic
memories by blending field recordings (which he recorded the nature sounds all over Japan) and music under the concept
“reverberation, reflection and afterimage”. An elegant audible tale comprised of “imagined sound” and “daily sounds”.

Saburo Ubukata is a first release from kaico, a sub label of SPEKK, Tokyo organized by Tomoki Takeuchi.

国内外のアカデミックなフィールドで活躍し、世界で賞賛を浴びる邦人アーティストのデビュー作が登場!ピアノをメインに様々な楽器音や自然音、声を、時に軽やかなビートを交え見事なバランスで紡ぎ上げた、Brian Eno、Peter Broderick、Heliosを掛け合わせたようなアンビエント、ポストクラシカル、エレクトロニカが交差する、耳で観る物語がここに完成!

Recommendation notes:

"This album is lovely! A sublime mix of ambient textures and modern classical composition that brings to mind Eluvium,Boards of Canada, and Vladislav Delay. Excellent! It is really great!" - Jeremy deVine (Temporary Residence)

"Ubukata’s music is a fine tapestry weaving real field recording and instrument sounds very delicately. The 10 tracks here indicates that this composer kept creating music with a good focus on the distance between the “sound” and “music”.
And then, the very keen listeners will notice the sincere questioning lying behind this lyrical music.. Because you know that music is always “a question without an answer” - Kyo Ichinose
