Experience - Album by Flumpool

Experience – Album by Flumpool

Just wanted to interject and talk a bit about the newest album that I am currently listening to. It is called Experience by the Japanese pop-rock band Flumpool. I like some of their material. But, I was really excited about Experience due to the fact that it features a collaborative track with my absolute favorite, Jazztronik. The album came out on 12.12.12. It is excellent and especially the track with Jazztronik is da bomb! User asketch uploaded the teaser video featuring this track on youtube, which I have embedded here for your viewing pleasure.

More Music

I am planning to post some tech related content tomorrow. But before I call it a night, thought of talking about some music. As usual, this one is also from the Japanese Lounge scene. When I am programming, I am always listening to music, mostly Jazz or Lounge from Japan. What is unique about lounge music originating from Japan is the role of the piano. Most of you would be aware of the importance of piano in Japanese culture. It is one of the most popular music instruments when it comes to learning. Piano compositions in Japan have been even given an academic treatment in a few cases. For instance, J. U. Garrett from Rice University wrote a thesis about Japanese piano compositions of the last hundred years. Apart from a fascinating read, it also provides a list of 3000 compositions ever since the first one appeared in 1900.  For those who are interested in this study, just follow the link below to download the thesis from Rice University Digital Scholarship Archive.

The track you are about to listen is called YAWNING CAT by the artist, Dr. Echo Logic. Soothing track to relax and simply chill. It’s part of the compilation, Tokyo Lounge – Dinner Time.

Dr. Echo-Logic (Hirofumi Asamoto) is another one of my favorites. I love his PianoxDub album. You can get to his website to know more about him by clicking his picture.
