Dragon’s Eye Recordings is pleased to present 'Going Home 帰郷' by Ai Yamamoto. Yamamoto's first release for the label explores her journey back to her hometown of Shizumu, Kashiba city in Nara, Japan. Quiet spaces, forests, rice fields, seasonal insect sounds, family and friends shape the composition.

On 'Going Home 帰郷' Yamamoto combines her old samples and transforms them with new approaches toward ambient. The piece begins with soft textures and combinations of long, gauzy melodies. These surfaces shift to simple piano tones bolstered underneath by subtle noise, then move to abstract guitar textures. The piece finishes with a field recording of crickets from Shizumi Nara, paired with a gentle refrain.

In Yamamoto’s words, “'Going Home 帰郷' brings you a pair of big wings to fly and takes you on a journey of Nostalgia where you feel warm and comfortable. Everyone looks back and thinks about their hometown where they grew up, and sentiment or emotions are all mixed––from bitter to sweet––but you still feel home with smiles. This is a music diary and a journey of ‘where you are from to where you are now.'"
