432Hz Music Japan has released numbers by group GODAI.
with new arrangements.
GODAI is a male duo formed by movie director Daisuke
Yahagi, who is also the producer of the duo and a painter,
and musician Heigo Yokouchi, who is the leader of 432Hz
Music Japan.
The Japanese band has had the honor of being joined by
Maurice White of Earth, Wind & Fire as a supervisor. It
attracted much attention in the early 21st century but
suspended its activity after two albums as it could not finish
one number by any possibility.
GODAI's music is classified into the genre which was called
"air sound" in Japan in the beginning of the 2000s. It is
characterized by showy panning utilizing a 3D image shifter
and a grandeur view of the world. Its music is one form of
hymn for the earth and worship for nature. It has been used
by many organizations, including Japan Airlines and NHK
that is the public broadcaster of Japan.
The year 2020 has been almost completely dominated by
discussion regarding the global outbreak of a pandemic
disease called the COVID-19. In this confused time, GODAI
has been receiving a lot of requests to resume its activity. In
response, it held a no-audience concert in early October
with artists who collaborate with Heigo Yokouchi for 432Hz
Music Japan. The live recording of the concert was done at
440Hz. The frequency was changed to 432Hz electronically
to distribute on the Internet with the approval of Daisuke
Yahagi, as it is released under the name of 432Hz Music

Artist Profile


    432Hz MUSIC JAPAN by Heigo Yokouchi Artist: Heigo Yokouchi is a multi-talented musician. Born to a musical family in Tokyo, he grew up with a deep love of music. Many of his ancestors and relatives were professionally involved in musical art. His father was a prominent jazz guitarist from the 20th-century Japan. The sound that Heigo creates with the same type of special analogue audio equipment as that of Isao Tomita's studio has a distinctive organic 3D ambience. Heigo made his debut as a professional musician in his teens. He has since been actively involved in many fields of music, ranging from composition, arrangement and performance to audio recording and mixing. For his unit of "Kaze Ni Gakusho," he does the whole production process of its albums by himself, from musical composition through audio mixing. In his professional career, Heigo has written, arranged and played music for advertisements, films and documentaries. One example is "Shall We Dance?" that is the 1996 winner of the Japan Academy Prize for the Picture of the Year and whose Hollywood remake version was released in 2004. He has provided his works regularly to in-flight music service of Japan Airlines and All Nippon Airways. Heigo also operates a duo called "Godai" with Japanese painter Shikandai Shingetsu. They were joined by Maurice White of "Earth, Wind & Fire" in the recording of the duo's album which took place in Los Angeles, California. Heigo collaborates with other musicians as well. He has worked with Keiko Matsui for a number of her recordings and stage performances as a musical arranger and performer. Keiko Matsui is a Japanese pianist specialized in smooth jazz whose first album "Deep Blue" took her in 2001 to the number one sport on Billboard's Top Contemporary Jazz Albums chart and held the position for three weeks. Heigo Yokouchi launched his musical experiment in 2001 as he moved his base to the mountains of Shinshu, central Japan. He tries to keep his works away from commercial music and creates sounds in harmony with nature at a self-made outdoor stage in the woods. He set up a unit called "Yatsugatake 432Hz Music Club" to provide elderly people in nursing homes with music. It was renamed as "432Hz Music Japan" later on. "432Hz Music Japan" avoids the use of digitally-changed 432Hz sound sources as much as possible. It basically relies on musical instruments and recording equipment that are originally tuned to 432Hz to create a variety of musical compositions and software.
