Stadiums & Shrines


Safe music, less in the sense of ‘without risk’, more so: music that in itself evokes a certain safety. Japanese artist Atsuhito Omori designs this kind of music exceptionally well. Here, on the title track to his tape, from three slowly repeated chords Omori builds a sanctuary. Elsewhere over Flow, he utilizes piano to similar effect. Restrained yet, as suggested, capable of lingering well past its runtime.

The cassette sees release (each with a photo print taken by Omori, thank-you note, logo sticker, hand-stamped tea bag and guava candy) through Orchid Tapes, who have a pre-sale up today.
