Let It Rain ☁⌁

Little 3 x 3.5" drawing I just finished. Glad my scanner caught the metallic paint and even made it look 3-D in places.

Music: Moshimoss ♫

The room was empty. The only clues that remained of any of life was the empty tumbler with sweat dripping on the bedstand. A slight tinge of perfume in the air. Left on the unmade bed, was a large envelope, bound in tape. In the envelope, maps of Iceland and a casette was found. Fourteen pieces of music unravelling a scenery of emotion and glimpses of timelessness... The secrets that Kosuke Anamizu has buried on Hidden Tape No. 66 are deeply telling. Unearthing these ten artifacts, we understand that they are meant for someone else. Vast and inward, the tracks are lovingly assembled from detailed field recordings, guitars, and electronics. Soundscapes flowing through a filter of longing and mystery.

That's the description provided for Hidden Tape No. 66, moshimoss/Kosuke Anamizu's first (and only?) album. I can't really describe it better than that.

Here's a bit more information on Kosuke Anamizu himself via his page on label Dynamophone:
Making his home in the shadow of Mt. Fuji, Kosuke Anamizu’s ethic stems from a belief that music and nature are fundamentally coupled. Driven by great expanse, his goal is to impart the warmth of life to the wide landscapes of our inner worlds. Kosuke’s doppleganger is one part of The Potone!, an electronica band on the Neguse Group label.

I'd suggest listening to the whole album, but these are the ones you should listen to for sure (in my opinion):
3. 'Slow Days It Was Super'
5. 'Moss Pillow'
7. 'Light'
9. 'Cold Fever'
10. 'Melody'

Digital album available on Bandcamp.
(there's also a free downloadable EP of three of the songs from the album if you need some help making up your mind)
