Composer and electronic musician Satoru Wono has released his first original album in four years for a limited distribution. A selection of songs from his previous work for collaborative contemporary dance company Co. Un Yamada, which he edited and remastered himself for listening. The collection consists of 20 tracks from one piece (2014), Jusanya (2014), Monaka (2015) and Ikinone (Production, Premiere: Aichi Triennale 2016). This is a diverse collection of soundtracks that can also be enjoyed as background music, from experimental electronic sounds to powerful beats reminiscent of folk music and quiet ambient sounds. It also includes the piano song "JOY" inspired by a video uploaded to Instagram by the company dancers during Stay-At-Home in April 2020. Cover photo (c) 2015 Naoshi Hatori.
