Attach whatever tags please you, but Kashiwa Daisuke’s Program Music I stands as one of the previous decade’s must haves. A clear feature of tracks like Stella, April #02 and Write Once, Run Melos are their seeming limitless bounds, free running through magnificent and sprawling soundscapes. Yet his latest upcoming album, 88, marks an attempt to express himself utilizing the keys of a piano. Though talented as a composer, the shift towards minimalist instrumentation is likely to factor heavily into the album’s outcome. Early signs are, well, let us just leave that to Kashiwa himself to show.

Fucking right. This had better make up for his last album. Aside from "Requiem", that was a huge disappointment.

I loved his last album. I think I'll write a review for his new album.

@all glad you all liked it

@FlawedPerfection Yeah, off the bat it seems more of a return to form. Hopefully the concept (only using the keys of the piano) is utilised well. In retrospect it seems like a really good concept for Kashiwa Daisuke, seems like it will lead to some beautiful imagery.

I didn't know a new album was at works!

Pretty great stuff, but to be honest I like my Kashiwa songs to be longer than 25 minutes.
