Japan / France, 1974, progressive electronic

TomitaSnowflakes Are Dancing

The famous and most beautiful, ethereal re-imagining of Debussy’s works as heard through the Moog synthesizer, blasting this music off into a space realm that is not cold and void but full of light and warmth. Though this is an aside with nothing to do with the music on this recording, I just find it a little bit chilling that the cover art features something connected to Tomita’s death: he died many many years after this album’s release, and he just so happened to die on a Japanese holiday that features the flying of carp kites, which are depicted in this album’s art. Surreal.
