Satoshi Kinoshita - Musique Concrète

"Play this sound very loudly to sleep/Dream to make your own lyrics to breath/Dream to make your own clothes to dance/Dream to make your own book to burn/Dream to make your own drink to swim/Dream to make your own dream to dream/Dream to make your own mantra to chant/Dream to make your own sound to tape/Dream to play the sound very gently to wake/Meanwhile you can feel yourself /As the part of the space and time in your dream" - Listen To The Color Of Your Dreams by Satoshi Kinoshita, New York City, 2007.

Musique Concrète (French; literally, "concrete music"), is a style of avant-garde music that relies on natural environmental sounds and other non-inherently-musical noises to create music.

Musique Concrète was pioneered by Pierre Schaeffer in the late 1940s and 1950s, facilitated by developments in technology, most prominently microphones and the commercial availability of the magnetic tape recorder (created in 1939), used by Schaeffer and his colleagues for manipulating tapes and tape loops.

PLEASE BE AWARE that all of these tracks contain subtle sonic elements that tend to be poorly reproduced online. We highly recommend that you use external speakers or your headphone jack for listening, and ask that you understand you are hearing only a portion of what the sound artist(s) created. The moderate quality MP3s presented for most tracks comes a bit closer to the artists' intentions, and a few tracks are in relatively high quality MP3. We have, of course, done our best to choose tracks that offer a rewarding experience even within these limits.

Also, note that virtually all the tracks are excerpts of longer pieces.
