This is a magical album that in many ways defies concrete definition. Its sonic palette is made up of fender Rhodes, pianos and twinkling keyboards. Constantly light and full of abstract melodies, ‘Ongakushitsu’ is a dream like journey through your forgotten childhood memories.

Aki combines a feeling of free form composition, with the finger dexterity of a grand piano master. No song sounds alike, yet each one sounds intrinsically linked by beautiful ether. At times the songs are reminiscent of a stroll through an unfamiliar forest, and at others, it is as if you swinging on a swing gently down the shores of your sub consciousness.

This album took years to fully grow on me, but it may be said that it took years for me to mature to understand it. For sure, it is an unusual musical statement, but its gentle and innocent beauty cannot be ignored. There are no beats or production tricks, just the pure artistic output of a talented and progressive musician.
