Kashiwa Daisuke - Program Music I
Kashiwa Daisuke is a Japanese composer who has dabbled in post-rock and electronic music throughout his experience in solo and band settings, which has culminated into the the very interesting experimental style seen here.
Program Music I is a two track album full of beautiful piano melodies, sampled beats, and other electronic touches. The music wouldn't be too out of place in a film, due to it's post-rock(ish) nature and more minimalist and ambient sections, though at times it builds into something quite different. The sampling in the drums and also piano give it an electronic edge, without being overbearing.
This is one of the most interesting albums I have come across in a while, and is certainly worth the effort of clicking the blue writing below.
