Following the release of "Something in the Air" in 2015, a new album by DJ Compuma and guitarist Ken Takehisa is now available again from the "Tealightsound" series commemorating the 155th anniversary of the founding of Ujikoen, a long-established tea wholesaler in Yamashiro, Kyoto that has been in business for over 150 years since the late Edo period. The new album by the duo of DJ Compuma and guitarist Ken Takehisa is now available once again. Inspired by Compuma's visit to the tea plantations of Uji Kouen, the album features field recordings of nature sounds and electronics in the mountains of Kyoto, layered with acoustic and electric guitars. The result is a wonderfully experimental, yet organic ambient electronic piece that permeates the mind and body. Please give it a listen. Special sticker included.

This work is the latest in the "Tealightsound" series, a series of works that expresses tea through sound and light, and was produced as an "extra edition" following "Tea Tree Buddha's Murmur" by Matsuo Ohno. It has been five years since the last work "SOMETHING IN THE AIR - the soul of quiet light and shadow layer -" by COMPUMA feat. KEN TAKEHISA, which is also the origin of "Tealightsound". Five years have passed since the last album "SOMETHING IN THE AIR - the soul of quiet light and shadow layer -" by COMPUMA feat. The artwork was created by painter Tomoo Gokita and designer Sei Suzuki, as in the previous album.
