Anoice : Ruined-Hotel Sessions (1st EP released in 2008)
"Ruined-Hotel Sessions" is the first EP from the Tokyo-based neoclassical/alternative ensemble, Anoice. Aside from Anoice, the music group Ricco Label is made up of many other wonderful projects: the solo work of Takahiro Kido and Yuki Murata (who are both members of Anoice), RiLF (The post-rock band formed by the members of Anoice and Calu, who is the vocalist of Matryoshka), films (The Tokyo-based dark classical music unit, featuring members of Anoice), mokyow (The post-rock band formed by Takahiro Kido, Takahiro Matsue and Tadashi Yoshikawa, and the keyboardist Kenichi Kai) and cru (The modern-classical music unit formed by Takahiro Kido and Yuki Murata), and some secret projects.
This gentle and warm EP was made by recording Anoice's improvisation performance at a hotel that's been left in ruin for 25 years. You can listen to the lovely sounds of a broken piano that has remained in the lobby of the hotel for a quarter century!
