Cicada ~ Hiking in the Mist

Hiking in the Mist is a departure of sorts for Cicada.  The group is now down to a quartet, but they’ve realized a life-long dream: leaving the ocean behind, the four have ventured into the forest, both literally and thematically.  In the

Rayons ~ Sagrada Reset

Sagrada Reset began a series of novels, subsequently adapted into manga, anime and film, leading to this gorgeous TV soundtrack by Rayons (pianist and composer Masako Nakai, working with an 11-piece ensemble).  The plot is complex, but the simple version is that there exists

Christoph Berg | Henning Schmiedt ~ Bei
