Japanese multi-instrumentalist Leo Takami,In July 2023, from New York's ambient ~ neo-classical label Unseen WorldsThis is the released album.

Contains 8 post-new age fusion songs. DL code included.

Below is a commentary by the label.

"" Deft jazz guitar, prog-rock fantasia, and Japanese ambient music all lie comfortably behind Leo Takami's Next Door.Next Door, the follow-up to the critically acclaimed Felis Catus & Silence, sees Leo Takami ruminate on the passing points of time, seasons, and consciousness. Leo uses music to reflect on everyday events and finds beauty in ordinary moments.He also questions the value of being confined in the world, and seems to be letting his mind wander toward something beyond that.His music is dedicated, deeply personal and introspective, similar to Rousseau's Memories of a Lonely Walker and Kenji Miyazawa's Night on the Galactic Railway.

In As If Listening, Leo draws inspiration from Van Gogh's chronological art exhibition to express the sense of "enlightened resignation" inherent in the act of creation. "Beyond" is an otherworldly nostalgia dream, a watercolor painting of a past life.His music is a hazy cinema of memory, a soundtrack for precious memories that may never have happened. "

    Unseen Worlds:

    "Adroit jazz guitar, prog rock fantasia, and Japanese environmental music all rest comfortably behind Leo Takami's Next Door. The follow up to the acclaimed Felis Catus & Silence, Next Door finds Takami ruminating on passages — of time, seasons, consciousness. Through music, Leo contemplates daily events and finds beauty in ordinary moments. He also seems to be questioning the value of being stuck in the world, allowing his mind to wander towards something beyond it. His music is earnest, deeply personal and introspective, and is sort of akin to Rousseau's Reveries of the Solitary Walker or Kenji Miyazawa's Night on the Galactic Railroad.

    On “As If Listening” Takami takes inspiration from a Van Gogh art show organized chronologically, articulating the sense of “enlightened resignation” that is intrinsic in the act of creativity. “Beyond” is a dream of otherworldly nostalgia, a watercolor of past lives . His music is a hazy cinema of memory, the soundtrack to a cherished memory that may have never really happened, but still radiates in the mind like the sun on an unusually warm winter day.
