Susumu Yokota - Uchu Tanjyo

Susumu Yokota was a prolific composer of electronic music. Some of it was was a sort of ambient new age techno, as perplexing as that might seem, heavy on the samples. Some of it was a lot more commercial than that. However, there's no denying that he was a tremendously musically literate guy, as you can hear on his standout albums Sakura (1999) and Grinning Cat (2001). Uchu Tanjyo comes from Sakura, and it's an elegantly constructed melding of wood drums and echo-heavy wobble guitar. Rather neat.
