Morning comes and returns back to night...
Together with his piano in the Setouchi islands,
Hashimoto has created twenty-four compositions.
"home" is the Japanese Pianist Hideyuki Hashimoto's third solo album.
After being labelled a big sensation at the Setouchi Triennale 2013, the music of Shima no piano de was later reconstructed for future release. An upright piano, untuned for over ten years and left in a school on a small island in the Setouchi sea, was awoken by Hideyuki Hashimoto's fingertips...
With an opened window, the compositions were written together with the surrounding natural sound.
