This is the latest record released by Osaka electronic musician 7FO in May 2022.The following is a commentary by the writer himself.

"When I started making works in March 2020, I just decided to record as I like. The coronavirus was spreading all over the world, and the situation gradually changed to a difficult situation. Live. I didn't have any plans and I met few people, so I felt like my spirit was a little deeper than usual during the production. I sit in front of the equipment like hanging a fishing line on a quiet lake. Something new I've always felt that I'm lurking under the surface of the water. I can't reach it, I can't reach it.

Excerpt from Ran --Bouten'afterword', written by the artist:

“When I started working on the piece in March of 2020, I had only decided to record it in the way I wanted to. The coronavirus was spreading globally, and the situation was gradually changing into something very serious. With no gigs scheduled and hardly seeing anyone, I felt as if my spirit was in a slightly deeper place than usual during the production. I sat down in front of my equipment as if I were dropping a fishing line into a quiet lake. I kept feeling that something new was lurking beneath the water surface. I was trying to catch that something that seemed to be just out of reach, that floated in and out of sight like a speck of smoke. "

Text by Pianola Records:

"2021 brings a new album by Osaka electronic musician / producer 7FO. This work is a departure from the recent global ambient / new age approach, and the unique sound aesthetic created using only hardware equipment is a new frontier of 7FO or a return to his origin "Ran --Bouten" is a new electronic music album with a poetic sensibility using machines.

Discovered by overseas labels such as RVNG intl., Bokeh Versions, and Metron-and with the release that followed EM Records in his hometown Osaka, it's like his personal folk craft that was once quietly played at his own pace. Music has reached listeners around the world. In recent years, he has been touring from a famous performance with Tapes at the Belgian "Meakusma Festival 2019" to a Japan-Korea tour. "Ran --Bouten" was born as a result of facing the sound alone without being asked by anyone to cool down the heat when the steaming and intense experience had settled down. Inside the cool electronic sound like a water bath, you can feel the maker's heart sending hot blood. "
