Long-awaited newest Album “All is Silence” is released. It also has gotten massive response in world. A succession of feeling of floating drifting melodies that seems to remind an endless trip. The sound-scape like a spectacular nature, the solemn horizon of landscape, the silence of the evening, fluttering reminiscence in the old tape, the sound of reverb from snow landscape. The press has said of him that he is capable of transforming the urban blues sound, the chill of daily life in Tokyo in a seamless progression of electronic nostalgia. Instrumental hip hop, clicks n ‘cuts, contemporary music, everything is absorbed and processed by Ametsub, spinning some songs which reflect that Akihito, the pianist, has what they call “the magic”.
