432HZ MUSIC JAPAN COVID-19 SPECIAL CONCERT PROGRAM vol2 Reflected Light of the Star (LIVE AT NAGANO ver.) [feat. GODAI] 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 Heigo Yokouchi Aruine MUGI, vocal&shamisen This time, I hurriedly requested to appear two days before the concert.

The sound of the Japanese drum is a language to communicate with the earth. It is especially important for 432Hz Music Japan, as the band seeks to worship nature with its audio art.
