7FO, an electronic musician/producer based in Osaka, has released numerous works on renowned labels such as Rvng Intl., Métron Records, and EM Records. In 2022, amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, 7FO brought forth the album "蘭 - 茫天" through Conatala.
Now, we have the new cassette album "Homemade Inspirations," which can be considered the most intimate collection of tracks in 7FO's career. This album compiles recordings originally created in 2015 without the intention of release.
Using electric guitars, effects, BOSS loopers, contact mics, toy theremins, and a Yamaha RY-10 drum machine, 7FO crafts a subtle moment where experimentation and inspiration intersect, captured on cassette MTR. Glittering electronic sounds that rise like bubbles and gentle, emotive melodies that seep into the air are enveloped by the distorted soundscape of a home recording.
The album cover features artwork drawn by 7FO during an in-store live performance at Pianola Records in 2022. The design and composition by Mitzdate Ko, and mastering was carried out by Masato Hara. (Mint / New)
