MSCTY X V&A Dundee

A 3 track ambient album (38m 14s) — released July 21st 2023 on MSCTY_EDN

Legendary Japanese Ambient pioneer Takada was specially commissioned by MSCTY and one of UK's leading art institutions, V&A Dundee, to create a soundtrack to the museum itslef.

Sympathetic to the architect Kengo Kuma's use of natural materials in the landmark building's construction, Takada bases the compositions around huge wood marimbas, creating atmospheric, hypnotic beauty inspired directly by Kuma's organic vision.

This album contains the complete works, constituting 3 connected compositions.

Midori Takada plays a special live show at Kings Place, London in September, the month of the album's physical release.

Her recently reissued 1983 work 'Through the Looking Glass' was hailed as "mesmerising" and an "ambient minimalist masterpiece" by Pitchfork who awarded it their best reissue of 2017.
