Mizorogaike, which consists of a pond and a wetland, is located on the northern edge of the Kyoto Basin. Many aquatic plants, insects, fish, wild birds, and mammals live in this area, some of which are remnant species from the ice age. In recent years, the extinction of native species and the destruction of ecosystems has become a problem because of alien species brought by humans, such as the bluegill. As the wetland lies adjacent to the urban area and the national road, with heavy traffic running along the northwestern side of the pond, one can hear traffic noises (including airplanes) all day and night at the pond. Although it is a common soundscape for us in cities, if you imagine how it was sounded in the ice age, and how it has been changed by now, this chaos can be heard as a layer of sediment of the place.
This is beyond all unreasonable doubt one of the best albums I ever listened to. As a painter who needs the right music to be able to work - I often prefer silence - Nachtstuecke is the kind of surrounding that is present without ever demanding attention. It works like a kind of carrier wave. I am very impressed and the next album I will add is Stephan Mathieu's 'Before Nostromo'.
