Seigo Aoyama’s new album “On The Drift” is based on the original scenery that he has been holding in his heart since childhood. It’s like his diary, in which various scenes colored by memories and experiences are drawn through music. His idea in this album is, “Until the day when I live by rooting on the ground, I will flow and drift through the landscape like a cloud floating in the sky.”
The scent of flowers drifting out of nowhere on spring nights. At dawn of summer, when everything is asleep, the starlight disappears from the sky one by one. A faint whisper of fallen leaves that suddenly trampled on an autumn afternoon. The warmth of the sun through the glass on a winter morning. Each landscape and feel becomes music and is scattered throughout this album.
