■ About the album:
A soft muted piano, profound and fascinating strings, and noises are like caressing "folds" of the heart.
Eleven beautiful but fragile cinematic stories that quietly heal the soul as if it were on fire.
Shingo Mimura's 2nd album, "Two Dreams Flew Over A Pine Tree." is finally out after three years since his last album that is outstanding!
Since the release of his last album, he has been energetically performing in concert halls, churches, important cultural properties, planetariums, and other venues in various performance styles, including solo and with a string ensemble.
A refined sense of live performance sublimates the harmony and chaos of intricately intertwined melodies into works gently and powerfully.
A soft piano with a delicate touch as if covered with thin silk.
The drones of the upright and electric bass or guitars are like fantastic fog drifting with the scent of grass and trees in the depth of the forest.
It is notable that strings in various forms, from solo cello to ensemble, are credited on 10 of the 11 tracks, making the cinematic work profound, vivid, and graceful in its melancholy style.
Noises created from various materials, such as bowing glasses, bonfires, and marbles, are making contrast and compliment pieces uniquely.
In addition, he was in charge of writing and arranging the music, playing instruments other than the strings, the recording engineer, mixing and mastering, and even artwork, so it shows all detail created carefully.
The sound world that unfolds from the melody that beauty and fragility coexists is like beautiful visuals.
This work produced during the Covid-19 spreading will make you feel the countless hopes that certainly exist beyond the darkness that envelops the world.
It is a must-listened album for fans Johann Johannsson, Olafur Arnalds, Max Richter, and Dustin O'Halloran.
