Today we're listening to Midori Hirano, a Japanese composer and pianist based in Berlin. Hirano’s ambient pieces reflect her study of classical piano. She records minimalist piano riffs and chords, and then applies effects that turn them into environments. We’re listening to a few of her recent, vocal-free LPs. We’ve also included a beautiful live performance at the 2017 Q3Ambientfest in Potsdam.
