After a hiatus of nearly two years, Japanese composer brings us his ninth album “Angel”. The recording is a 65-minute soundscape journey spread out over four lengthy tracks that once again moves through immersive, contemplative sonic territory.
Here, things are at ease and in balance, with slow morphing and smoothly cascading textures. The elements float and drift on all four pieces as they easily spread their calming perfume to emotional effect.
Despite its strong new-age undercurrent, I think the overall relaxing “Angel” surpasses Juta’s previous releases, that were already well-done albums.
