hironori takahashi – process part 248
When I first went to Metamorphose, the biggest open-air festival in Japan, I went through a metamorphosis. Climbing a nearby hill, it was possible to look out from the top upon the whole of this wonderful spectacle:
Sound affected the earth.
Light expanded the dark sky.
The crowd was pure energy.
People were no longer separate from nature. They were a part of it.
These observations sparked an impulse inside of me: What can I do? What should I do?
The answer came when I made Gaia’s Archetype. The track is an expression of the rising emotion that I first felt while there. The complex feelings that rose from Gaia, the source of all things, helped to form me.
After the release of my first 12″ (Gaia’s Archetype), I created this mix. I titled it, “Believable Light” because I selected only tracks/sounds that I believe in. Light = sound. This rules my space and from there, I express resonant sounds and groove.
