Ruined​-​Hotel Sessions

by Anoice

mmm 07:46

Ruined-Hotel Sessions is the first EP from the Tokyo-based neoclassical/alternative ensemble, Anoice. Aside from Anoice, the music group Ricco Label is made up of many other wonderful projects: the solo work of Takahiro Kido and Yuki Murata (who are both members of Anoice), RiLF (an alternative rock band formed by the members of Anoice and Calu, who is the vocalist of Matryoshka), mokyow (a post-rock band formed by Anoice members Takahiro Kido, Takahiro Matsue, and Tadashi Yoshikawa, as well as keyboardist Kenichi Kai), cru (a neoclassical music unit formed by composers Takahiro Kido and Yuki Murata), as well as some secret projects yet to come!

This gentle and warm album was made by recording Anoice's improvisation performance at a hotel that's been left in ruin for 25 years. You can listen to the lovely sounds of a broken piano that has remained in the lobby of the hotel for a quarter century!
