Description

Title: Felis Catus and Silence
Artist: Takami, Leo
Label: Unseen Worlds
Product Type: VINYL LP
UPC: 744790142716
Genre: Jazz

Felis Catus and Silence is a breakthrough release for Tokyo composer-guitarist Leo Takami, following the milestone albums Children's Song (2012) and Tree of Life (2017). Takami counterpoints the soothing aesthetics of prime-era Windham Hill New Age guitar-heroism with meditative, intellectual compositions comprised of ambitious, process-oriented arrangements. While Takami largely wears his genre influences on his sleeve - jazz, classical, Japanese gagaku - the influence of ambient music is a tacit foundation of his work. Working diligently outside of any established communities for fringe musics, Takami conjures this association through a patient focus on generous musical intervals. Steady, kaleidoscopic unfolding of his compositions reflect Takami's creative intent to "become aware of precisely the time and place I am living." The unabashedly sweet, tuneful virtues of his music in concert with this reflective form provide an artistic relief of Takami's thematic harmony. "Each song is based on birth and death, and moving onto the next stage..." Leo Takami, born 1970, studied guitar under Hideaki Tsumura (aka Kamekichi Tsumura) and performs regularly in Tokyo.
