Boomkat Product Review:
Second release in Nonclassical's 'Fieldwave' compilation series, featuring Sugai Ken, Midori Hirano, Ken Nishikawa, Tomoko Hoj, Max Reinhardt and more.
"Fieldwave, Vol. 2 is the second release in the label's compilation series created by broadcaster Nick Luscombe, bringing together artists with field recording at the heart of their work. This second volume focuses on the sounds of Japan, with tracks from Japanese musicians and from British artists who have gathered recordings via trips to Japan.
"I created the Fieldwave compilation series in 2020 as a window to the world of field recordings and wider acoustic ecology, via the work of recordists, sound artists and musicians from around the world", says Nick Luscombe, who compiles the series of releases. "For this, the second volume of Fieldwave, I decided to look to Japan as inspiration – surely one of the most sonically rich places on earth.""
