Following March’s earthquake in Japan, there has been great progress in the on-going rebuilding project but still, much work remains. So Bartosz Dziadosz (Pleq) and I (Harry Towell) decided that we would put together something special to be released through Audio Gourmet to raise money for the cause and donations will be sent via Ian Hawgood, who’s wife is currently working directly with some of the people affected. There have already been some excellent compilations put together that have raised hundreds of pounds for Japan, including Kanshin, For Nihon and 31 Songs For Japan to name but a few. We wanted to try and do something too and between the two of us, we invited 60 artists to each put together a short track of roughly a minute in length. As a result, we’ve collected a global effort of short pieces spanning many of the sub-genres that make up what some might call ambient music.
