Layered Memories: Searching for Sound

Nice documentary by Red Bull Music Academy on the sonic exploration of Yosi Horikawa.

It’s clear that Yosi Horikawa is not only obsessed with music, but sound itself. The Japanese producer consistently incorporates field recordings into his tracks to vibrant effect. So when Yosi decided to make the World Heritage island of Yakushima his next destination for recordings, we knew we had to tag along. Layered Memories: Searching For Sound With Yosi Horikawa follows Yosi as he travels to the stunning landscape and, later, as he plays the resulting music on speakers he has built himself. It’s a behind-the-scenes look at how one of electronic music’s most exciting talents transforms the everyday into something extraordinary.
