Haiku Podcast #34: Hirotaka Shirotsubaki

This week Naviar released Wet Petals, by Japanese sound artist Hirotaka Shirotsubaki. For the occasion, I asked Hirotaka to do a podcast including some of his works and music he loves and is inspired by. The result is 60 minutes of ethereal and graceful ambient music, mixed with subtle rhythms and intricate soundscapes.

Wet Petals is available at https://naviarrecords.bandcamp.com/album/wet-petals
