The album is taken from Satoshi and Makoto’s archive of sonic experimentation, with its 10 tracks created using the Casio CZ-5000 synth.
‘A Postcard in Summer’
In Safe Trip style, the release is accompanied by a string of “results”, including an analysis of the album’s colour profile, which reads as follows:
“If you assign a Pantone colour code to each different musical note featured on the artefact, all bar 734 of the 1,867 “spot” colours are present … most of the “musical colours” employed by Satoshi & Makoto were shades of purple, orange, red, green, yellow and pink.”
CZ-5000 Sounds & Sequences Vol II follows the release of the first volume, also on Safe Trip, in 2017.
