When two major representatives of the electronic avant-garde join forces for an album, you are in for a special treat. Christopher Willits and Ryuichi Sakamoto live up to your expectations. Ocean Fire is a celebration of the oceans, but it also a warning against pollution. The seven tracks flow and crash like mighty waves. Sakamoto supplied his signature processed piano sound and Willits came up with the treated guitar. Your neighbours may not like it, but who cares. They just need it expand their musical taste.Tracks:
- Toward Water
- Sea Plains
- Cold Heat
- Ocean Sky Remains
Ocean Fire is released on 12k records. Release date: February 12.
