For those of you who don't know, Isao Tomita was a pioneer in the synthesized music scene. He was able to manipulate the Moog Synthesizer like no other. This album is very etherial and has a fluid sound, it seems mr Tomita is in love with the music and this comes across on many of the tracks, the girl with the flaxen hair is a good example, it just flows along like a stream. For those of you who have never heard this kind of music, I can say you need to be in the right mood to listen to it, this is where you shut your eyes and bliss out on the sound, one for a softly lite room and no other distractions. Isao Tomita. Snowflakes Are Dancing. As well, the album succeeds as an interpretation of several Debussy compositions including Clair de lune and Arabesque No. Debussy's atmospheric compositions are naturals to receive the Tomita treatment and despite a few moments of interstellar cheesiness worthy of Star Hustler, Tomita's debut is an intriguing proto-synthesizer-pop record. snowflakes are dancing.
