|THE SKIES OF BIEI (SORA TO KUMO NO STAGE) (1998)
Music to accompany photos by Goh Itoh
Japan: Kinyosha KYRG-10221
Morgans second foray into CD-ROM music again accompanied the images of an outstanding photographer - this time, Japanese lensman Goh Itoh. The photographs are of Itohs homeland, Hokkaido, the northern island of Japan. Its gently rounded mountain ranges and spectacular cloud formations inspired Morgans music, specially composed for this (bilingual: Japanese/English) CD-ROM. Four lush organ/piano/guitar/synthesiser soundscapes were the result. Morgan has been to Hokkaido several times and comments that the spacious, robust beauty of this region reminded him of the highlands of Scotland.
