Considered a Holy Grail of Japanese music by many, 'Through The Looking Glass' is Midori Takada’s first solo endeavour, a captivating four-song suite capturing her deep quests into traditional African and Asian percussive language and exploring contemplative ambient sounds with an admirably precise use of marimba. The result is alternatively ethereal and vibrant, always precise and mesmerising, and makes for an atmospheric masterpiece and an unparalleled sonic and spiritual experience.
