Haruka Nakamura: Aoi Mori (blue Forest)

1. Product Details

Haruka Nakamura's first ambient album, created with the theme of 'forest,' as music for Tsutaya Shoten. A nostalgic yet new sound. The jacket photo is by Rinko Kawauchi, a photographer with whom she has a close friendship. This work, which was released as a CD album in September 2023, will be released as a 12-inch record along with the second work 'Aoi Mori?'. Starting in September 2023, musician Haruka Nakamura will be in charge of in-store music for some Tsutaya Bookstore stores for one year. All songs are newly written songs for the Tsutaya Shoten Project. We plan to produce four albums through the summer of 2024, with the theme of 'forest,' which is also the concept of a bookstore. Although it is a new sound in Harukanakamura's career, it is original ambient music that has a nostalgic feel. 80's synthesizers, distant hymns, reverberating piano, electronica, Fender Rhodes, and soothing minimal music sounds. These songs make you feel like you are taking a deep breath in the forest in this day and age where relaxation is sought after. Analog mastering was done by Gen Tanabe (studio camel house), who has a reputation for mastering records of Nakamura's works. The LP binding also has a conceptual and beautiful design that makes you feel like you are looking through a window into the forest world expressed in Rinko Kawauchi's photographs. haruka nakamura Born in Aomori / Musician She moved to Tokyo at the age of 15 to pursue music.
