Boomkat Product Review:
Spellbinding improvisations on a Prophet 5 synth by Toshihiko Mori, a former keys player for Ryuichi Sakamoto, capturing the spirit of ‘Jinen’ - Japanese for “Spontaneity’ - for Biosphere’s label
Putting the legendary Prophet 5 synth thru its paces, with some extra touches of Yamaha VSS-30 8-bit sampler, a few granular guitar pedals, and some field recordings from the artist’s forest-bathing walks, the results sound to these ears like a more spirited adjunct to Alessandro Cortini’s brooding synth improvs, as Tokyo's Toshihiko trusts his instincts along in-the-moment lines of thought between the radiant, widescreen chord flares of ‘Kibou’, to spiralling arps like something from Leyland Kirby’s ‘Intrigue & Stuff’ series, to aerial nightglyidng sensations in ‘Sou’, and a thizzing gem called ‘NBWRYM’ that might resonate with fans of Ayya’s modern classic ‘Second Mistake’.
