Comes in a wallet on reverse board, with artwork by Taiji Kuroda
We are proud to announce reissuing of the most important root of Japanese Ambient Music, Fumio Miyashita's archives. The first release on this series is "WAVE" originally released on cassette from his label Biwa Records in 1983.
Musician, music therapist and founder of Healing Music in Japan, Fumio Miyashita began his musical career in 1966. In 1977, he immigrated to the United States, where he continued to study oriental medicine, philosophy, the Chinese Five Elements and also began, in earnest, to research music therapy.
In 1981, he decided to return to Japan, moved to Shinshu Iizuna Highlands and established Biwa Studio. One reason for choosing Iizuna Highlands was because it’s altitude is 1,250 meters and during his studies he learned that this is a very positive and healthy altitude for the human body to reside in. There he created numerous works, including music CD’s and image videos. His passion was for creating music that was helpful to people and his recurring theme in his works was relaxation and healing for the mind and body. He named his music ‘Healing Music’ and he established his own unique style of music therapy.
