Haruomi Hosono

Good morning.

Today we’re listening to Haruomi Hosono, a Japanese electronic musician. Hosono is one of three members of the iconic band Yellow Magic Orchestra. As a solo artist, he put out several instrumental albums, which we’re playing today. 1985’s Paradise View is a series of minimalist synth compositions that exude the playfulness of YMO records. 1995’s Naga uses Indian instruments to create a peaceful atmosphere for focus. Some limitations on streaming.
