Documentary Profile: Hakobune

Date Published
1st November 2019

Hakobune (Takahiro Yorifuji) is an ambient musician based in Tokyo.

I’ve had the pleasure of working with him for several years now, as he has provided the soundtracks to most of my video work to date. I’m pleased to announced he will also be composing an entirely original soundtrack for my upcoming documentary on Nomaoi.

Hakobune’s ethereal soundscapes sometimes approach an hour in length, and they stir unique feelings in every listener. I find them beautifully poignant and sad, but always with a dash of hopefulness shining through.

I filmed him over several performances, at home, and while collaborating with ambient icon Chihei Hatakeyama.

Please check out the profile below, and if you like his music then go and grab some on mp3, vinyl or casette!
