Today we’re listening to Chino Yoshio, a Japanese composer and pianist based in Kyotanabe. He studied electone and composition at the Yamaha Music School.1 Since 2012 he’s been putting out primarily solo piano and keyboard music with a very delicate touch. Four of his full-length albums have been part of a “Relax” series, including the most recent one, Relax, Pt. 4, which came out in May. We’re playing that record as well as the first installment in the series, Relax 2015. The pieces are starkly minimalistic yet tender and full of moving melodies.
We wish you a great start to your week.
