Leaf, 2000

An ambient experiment by the Japanese electronic producer. It's restrained and understated to the extreme, with soft beats and quiet synth splashes. It feels improvised and kind of thrown together, which might be the point of this type of music, but it's more suitable for drifting away in the background than active listening. For a more interesting and beautiful experiment in ambient sound texture try his other album "Sakura".
