2015 release. Takashi Hattori is an Osaka-based musician. He was exceptionally accepted as a member of the inaugural class of The Film School of Tokyo's music course at the age of 15, and though he was permitted from a major record label to freely use their studio as a high school student, this mysterious prodigy and "enfant terrible" disappeared coinciding with graduation. Years later, in 2013, Hattori released in obscurity his maiden work including six tracks in which his ingenious and thrilling electronic orchestra was more than enough to prove his surpassing potentials. With various musical elements including modern music, jazz, ambient, minimal, noise, drone, ethnic music and even a gagaku (Japanese court music) approach, his sounds that intersect with an overwhelming scale are peerless. With it's theme being "faith", according to Hattori, his new work's odd nervousness that expresses the world's chaos and eccentric but peculiarly harmonized outlook of the world that somewhat reminds us of equinox has a universe-like beauty drifting by it's side. Built up with his unfettered sensitivity and independent aesthetics, Takashi Hattori's first full album should be what is called a timeless piece of work.
