    Innovational electronic music from Japanese sound-artist shotahirama and his first CD full album "Sad Vacation" was released in 2011 from SIGNALDADA. Capturing the intense force of various Hong Kong (City Walk) field-sounds (recorded by Hong Kong field-recordist Edwin Lo), and also captured in Tokyo, London, New York to create a mind blowing audio sculpture. Unique blend of cracked electronics, near awkward ambient textures that always seem to flow smoothly like the most natural of sounds around, building up a great set of modern electronic music. "Sad Vacation" contains 42 tracks (total:20min) slowly evolve in great patches of aural beauty.
