Lab Overview

"Marine Flowers by Japanese multi artist Akira Ito. An album that is unique, delicate, exploratory… a true one-of-a-kind sonic adventure that 35 years after its first release comes back in the form of a reissue via Glossy Mistakes. Looking back, Akira Ito’s artistic career began not in music but in acting. However, as acting gigs dried up, actor/director Shintaro Katsu encouraged him to follow his steps into the music industry, becoming a performing musician, joining touring bands across Japan fusing western and Shōwa-era pop styles. But Akira’s musical interests changed throughout his life experiences and travels, up to the point when he knew exactly what he wanted to do (without knowing how to do it): healing music. First, he started his own record label, dubbing it 'Green & Water' to promote a series of releases that would strike a more organic tone, envisioning a series of Japanese Environmental Music records. Marine Flowers would be one of four self-penned albums on the label dedicated to esoteric symbolism like 'Hopi Prophecies', 'Prayers', and the 'Four Corners Of Water'. Originally released in 1986 and on its 35th anniversary, Marine Flowers deserves this fresh reissue, making this masterpiece available for everyone. Liner notes are written by Diego Olivas from an interview with the artist coordinated by Ken Hidaka." - Glossy Mistakes
