Review: Is Fumio Miyashita the most important artist in the world of Japanese ambient? Quite possibly. The music therapist and founder of Healing Music began in 1966 and played in a number of progressive rock groups, became a karate black belt, studied the Chinese Five Elements and eventually grew a passion for creating music that was for relaxation and healing of the mind and body. He sold hundreds of thousands of copies of albums like Meditation and Tanjo and this album marks a first ever release of Wave from 1983. It is utterly cathartic, beautiful and immersive across all five pieces.
