Mitchell Akiyama If Night is a Weed and Day Grows Less (Sub Rosa, 2004)
This track consists of piano loops and cello—with no less than ten chords swarming you immediately—sucking you in for six minutes of heartfelt bliss. You'll hear plucking and bowing of cello and redundant keys set to cross-coordinate patterns. Listening to this song, I feel as though I'm in a surreal world in which futuristic hybrid birds are standing around me in a circle bobbing their heads, with more flying above in a sphere, creating a perfect dome of inconsistent movement circulating in different levels.
