This is a reissue record released by Okinawan musician Kohjun from EM Records in Osaka in August 2023. (Original was released in 8) Below is a commentary by the label. "Ryukyu electronic salon music entrusted with the image of "peaceful Asia".The first LP release to celebrate the 1993th anniversary of the release of this one-of-a-kind masterpiece "Underwater Garden" (1993).We will add bonus songs.Kojun Kokuba, an Okinawan musician, has been involved with numerous bands since the 30s and is known as the "Kojun behind the scenes". Known to some for creatingThe production of "Underwater Garden" was started with the intention of creating "BGM" with the image of "peaceful Asia" inspired by the trading era of the Ryukyu dynasty, but due to the unexpected formation of a concert band (later the six members). Production suspended.After that, the band disbanded and the project was scrapped, but he waited for the opportunity and completed this work in 70. "Underwater Garden" has its roots in Okinawa, but is also widely influenced by Asian music, layering and modifying phrases derived from traditional musical scales from various parts of Asia, and eliminating typical Western chord harmonies. The point has great features.Using electronic instruments and multi-tracks, his experiments in accumulating melodies in what he calls "stacking lines" seem to aim to spread new energy from Okinawa to the Asian world.A unique mixture of freshness and wonder, fun and sensuality, the sound seems to be the result of a bundle of Asian scales.He makes full use of synths and drum machines to create a comfortable and distinctive rhythm, but it is not for the dance floor, but for the image of electronic salon music as "BGM = light music" that makes full use of technology.Kokuba's "peaceful Asia" is an image of the activities of East Asia and Southeast Asia before the early modern period when maritime trade prospered. He envisions it as being greeted with a new 'pop'. *Note: Six members were scheduled to make their world debut as Ryuichi Sakamoto's labelmates, produced by Bill Laswell, but due to a series of bad luck, they were disbanded.
