Wata Igarashi's live ambient experience: Flow at Mutek Japan

Wata Igarashi debuts a new live ambi­ent per­for­mance Flow’ at Mutek Japan. Ful­ly mak­ing the most of the d&b Sound­scape sys­tem, Flow’ immers­es the audi­ence in sound.

With speak­ers arranged in a cir­cu­lar for­ma­tion, the lis­ten­er expe­ri­ence is akin to sit­ting at the cen­tre of a sort of syn­the­siz­er orches­tra. Flow’ builds upon his pre­vi­ous ambi­ent releas­es WIP01 and WIP02 on his own label WIP’ and the track he con­tributed to the new Open Space Vol­ume 2’ Com­pi­la­tion on Fig­ure Records.

Igarashi has not for­got­ten about tech­no, with his lat­est WIP06 spe­cial­ly craft­ed for the floor. His recent pod­cast for HATE presents him at full pow­er, find­ing the right blend of ener­gy and psychedelia. 

A spe­cial live record­ing of Wata per­form­ing live at Nobeya­ma Radio Obser­va­to­ry in the coun­try­side of Japan was also includ­ed in RA’s best mix­es of 2021. Watch the video below.

2022 looks to be a big year for Igarashi. Stay tuned for more releas­es on his own label WIP, as well as sev­er­al of his trade­mark remix­es due for release.
