SHIHO YABUKI – The Body Is A Message Of The Universe (Morning AM28-6 JP 1987) M-/Ex
Very rare original Japanese 1st pressing promo copy with OBI and insert from Japan 1987. This original release has two unique tracks that is not on the reissue and also a different sleeve design(!) The music is, as you probably know by now, dreamy electronic ambient new age of the best kind released in a small edition in Japan back in 1987 by the mysterious musician/magician Shiho.The Body Is A Message Of The Universe features floating shimmering synthesizer textures. It’s unique and extra ordinarily serene with shifting tone colors and spatial textures bringing the listener to a special magic place. It’s as beautiful as it ‘s captivating. There’s also a haunting edge to parts of the album sounding like what could originally have influenced David Lynch and Angelo Badalamenti when they composed the soundtrack to the original Twin Peaks series. “Creativity is the unfolding of the unknown realms within the self. Through our chosen ways of expression, each of us is daily creating a unique universe, a unique environment. The universe created by each and every being in endless repetition are messages of the universe. The breath of this music, expressed from my present environment, flowing through a myriad of places as environmental music is my expression of The Body Is A Message Of The Universe”.
