[The beginning of a beautiful day. A hymn to nature and peace sung by warm ambient.]

It's the blue hour before dawn. The little insects wake up, and the plants and trees prepare to reach for the morning sun. Flowers quietly smell sweet in the soft light that is beginning to shine through.
The beginning of a beautiful day that is supposed to come to people all over the world. coconoe has confined it to a song with a unique sound with a prayer for peace.
The fragile sound loops, nostalgic and gentle piano, tape noise, and warm bass like the vast land comfortably envelop you. The clear, watery tone of the Array Mbira, a rare instrument described as the sound of "purification of the soul," shows various expressions through the effects pedals. The ambient drone sounds like a watercolor painting with innocent voices fusing to create an irreplaceable beautiful world.
The paintings on the cover, which add even more character to the sound, are the work of Unno Atsutaka, a spirited Japanese Western-style painter with whom coconoe has been collaborating since its debut album.

Artist Profile

  • coconoe

    The origins of the name "coconoe" lie in the Japanese terms: "Kokono-e" (literally "ninefold", meaning "to pile up") and "Koko-no-e" (which means "the pictures drawn by individual people"). A union of these homophones, their namesake represents a place where "individually-drawn paintings overlap and become one sound and world". As such, each member of coconoe brings to the table a unique essence which exquisitely blends together to establish a refreshingly avant-garde genre described as "ambient pop art". - takayama naoko - vocals, lyrics, small percussion, videowork, artwork, costume, direction, etc. a bit of a wild child with a silly and clumsy side.
