From earth to space - CD HATA and KOYAS present their futuristic, new age of experimental music as a conceptual soundtrack of a journey that transcends time and space
While they play in improvisation, CD HATA and KOYAS have got some prepared storyboard behind the scenes. Although it is more like an abstract that is quickly scribbled down with pen and paper, it allows them to let their music have some story arc throughout their sets and this is exactly what this album captures.
This is an excerpt of their recorded live set played publicly in the venue called Debris at Daikanyama, located near Shibuya, known as one of Tokyo's main nightclub districts.
The concept of the storyboard is based on some gnostic myths starting from the birth of the main character traveling from the earth to space all the way to the climax where he fights against the evil lord.
According to them, the actual album can be divided into two parts. The first three tracks represents the journey through the earth includes the birth of a hero, traveling through the ocean, and the exit from the planet heading towards the outer space. And the latter three tracks illustrate a journey in space where he drifts along the cosmic then finally, he fights against the evil lord.
While they play numbers of hardware synthesizers in the set, they come up with something psychedelic along the way which could be located somewhere in between ambient and experimental for the genre wise. This session also features some visual work from Idealsolution as VJ team, enhancing some trippy vibes for this recording.
