I would like it if the listener could abandon all previous conceptions of time and experience a new sense of time presented in this music as if eternal time can be lived in a single moment.

No so long time ago (20 February 2022) peachfuzz uploaded "Somei Satoh: Toward the night (1993)
and I discovered Satoh!

I hope that he don't have this breathtaking LITANIA. Anyway my testimonial to all his previous (!?) shares: thanks peachfuzz.

I've included also an interesting essay:
Chrysalis and Absence - Some Notes on Margaret Leng Tan by W.C. Bamberger (August 2007)

Enjoy this masterpiece

Ahh! This little cd is a piece of heart of mine; I love this cd so much I could think it's only mine; if you don't experience a sense of beauty and intimacy while listening to this I think you're merely a rock [in a zen garden however ;) ] Everyone who dislike it should be banned by avax in my democratic opinion ;)

Ooliver, spero sia innamorato anche tu di questo cd; se non l'avessi postato tu l'avrei fatto io prima o poi. Lo trovo veramente così intimo che mi fa quasi terrore
che qualcuno lo snobbi o possa non trovarlo come me un sublime viaggio sensoriale(!)

Great! I like Satoh too. I discovered him a couple of years ago, but apart from peachfuzz's upload no lossless so far. Thanks ooliver


wow....just finished listening to "Incarnation II"...fantastic. Yes, that's what Satoh is about.
A grand, vast wall of sound, to which there is no end or beginning. "Litania" gets even more impressive

@ ooliver

LOL, fortunately I already have this CD. It's still a very nice CD that I highly recommend. Plus, with Margaret Leng Tan as the pianist, what could possibly go wrong? Thanks for sharing nonetheless.

How is this Satoh album abd Towards the Night compared to Mantra/Stabat Mater?
Posted By: aldebaran1 Date: 28 Feb 2022 11:15:45
fanny.xenakis: it's completely another story, with luscious waves of strings setting a romantic feel of soundtrack, not bad
at all, but -personally- I think the masterpiece is the here present Litania cd
