WRWTFWW Records is honored to announce the much anticipated reissue of Satoshi Ashikawas undeniable classic of Japanese environmental/ambient/minimalism, Still Way (Wave Notation 2). The album, available on digital for the first time ever, comes with a cover artwork by Hiroshi Yoshimura. Initially released in 1982 as part of the Wave Notation series*, Still Way is, without a doubt, a seminal Japanese environmental/ambient/minimalism album, often mentioned alongside Midori Takadas Through Looking Glass and Hiroshi Yoshimuras Green as one of the genres most important pieces. "Like the moment of stillness, after the wind passes through the garden, when the rain stops for a brief second" Notably inspired by Erik Saties Furniture Music and Brian Enos ambient work, Satoshi Ashikawa aimed to compose music "intended to be listened to in a casual manner, as a musical landscape or a sound objectnot something that would stimulate listeners but music that should drift like smoke and become part of the environment." The result is simply phenomenal, subtle minimalism and emotional elegance exquisitely orchestrated by Satoshi Ishikawa and his team consisting of his wife Masami Ashikawa (on flute), Midori Takada (on vibraphone), Yuko Utsumi (on harp), Tomoko Sono (on piano), and Junko Arase (on vibraphone).
