Fasman’s Finds – Hiroshi Yoshimura

Fasman’s Finds is our column from Rebecca Fasman (intrepid record nerd, DJ, and curator at the Kinsey Institute) in which she shares what she’s listening to and why. 

It’s been a little over a year of Covid-19 lockdowns. A year of sickness and fear and death and not having access to the ways we usually deal with those things. I’ve been particularly tired/overtaxed this past week, and don’t want to listen to anything with words, or anything fast, or anything that has a traditional song structure. And so I’ve been dipping into one of my favorite albums of all time, Hiroshi Yoshimura‘s Music for Nine Postcards. This album is from 1982, and Hiroshi wrote it to correspond to 9 windows at the Hara Museum in Tokyo, where the album was first played in person. 

There is something so special to the iterative concept of this album; Yoshimura is the center, and as his views change, so do his moods, moving from melancholy to sweet, humble to excited, desirous to content. Though it all, he demonstrates such consideration, care, and love for this space, both architectural space and the sonic space he creates. I can’t say enough good things about all of Yoshimura’s work, but as this is the first album I heard of his, this holds a special place in my heart/brain/body. Hope it will in yours too.
