Drown In Sound:

   I must have been around 15 years old when my friend Derek visited my house one day. I was in my room probably burning incense or trying to record some guitar music on one of my homemade multi boom-box recording systems I had set up. Derek was older than me and would come over once in a while to show me a few guitar techniques...blah blah blah. He shows me a cassette tape that he picked up for a quarter at a garage sale and tells me that I should check it out. The cover looks really wacky and distills a sci-fi 70's TRON kind of hokiness that's hard to fake. Intrigued, I played it in my headphones while going to sleep that night. Hence began the audio journey with TOMITA and his classic piece of electronic music, THE BERMUDA TRIANGLE.

   Swirling waves of weird tones and crisp synthesizers zooming and swirling all around... Random bleeping and blooping of alien computers sunken below the depths of a sunless watery tomb. Distant voices carried along on analogue arcs of wonder. I was lost in some kind of strange deep dream long before I even fell asleep.

   Eventually, I had to return the tape to Derek, but I somehow ended up scoring a few other Tomita recordings (on CD this time) but I never forgot about how this particular album stood out for me. It is a cinematic, exciting, confusing, beautifully lush listening experience...(far more so than any of the multi boom-box audio experiments that were going on in my old bedroom, at least).

 Immerse yourself in cosmic appreciation for the almighty Isao Tomita and you too can make the claim:

I hadn't thought about Tomita in years. I had some of his stuff in the 70's...glad I clicked to see if you were back to posting.

Well this album came out of the blue and hit all my buttons! For me to have memories of Close Encounters and the Harlan Ellison short story, 'Midnight in the Sunken Cathedral' all from one record is quite an accomplishment..

Thanks for the share!
