VGM161 Ambient Textures Vol 15 – Ghosts of Japan


Album Description

In the dark rolling hills of Karuizawa, a lone mansion sits atop a hill accompanied by a single wilted Garnet Tree. You venture into the mysterious building and in the distance you can hear the sweet sounds of the shakuhachi and taiko in harmony. With this collection, we combine ambient and textural sounds with traditional Japanese instruments. The Shakuhachi is sweet and mysterious, the Koto and Shamisen foretell subtle emotional shifts, and the low boom of taiko keeps the story moving. Program these tracks to set the stage for your stories of ancient Japan and meditative exploration.
