“I heard the sound of a shaminsen being played by someone taking lesson in the neighbourhood. After it stopped raining, I heard its sound carried by the wind. Then it faded into the distance and this wave created a static state that made me forget about time” - Satoshi Ashikawa
Gareth is a composer and musician from Ireland. His album, ‘Laistigh den Ghleo’, is dedicated to the life and music of Satoshi Ashikawa. It’s a beautiful record, and has recently been re-released alongside Ashikawa’s eminent environmental work ‘Still Way’.
In his mix, Gareth selects sounds that connect his interest in environmental music and the current scene in Ireland. Entitled ‘Torann na Seimhe’, the mix flows through melodic minimal and ambient tracks from Irish composers.
