DESCRIPTION

Credited to Hosono and pop art legend Tadanori Yokoo (who created the cover art), ‘Cochin Moon’ is a fictional soundtrack to a journey into unknown worlds, inspired by Hosono and Yokoo’s trip to India. It was created almost entirely on synthesizers and sequencers with the help of future YMO collaborators Ryuichi Sakamoto and Hideki Matsutake. The music on the album is the perfect encapsulation of Hosono’s concept of “sightseeing music”: transporting the listener to an exotic place that may or may not exist
