In 2016, inspired by the music of a local temple in Tokyo, I became obsessed by microtunings. As I explored the world of exotic scales, the alien sounds reminded me of the work of my favorite graphic artist, Moebius (real name Jean Giraud), and his masterwork The Airtight Garage. A tribute album was born.
Moebius was strongly influenced by 20th Century New Age and psychedelic philosophy, including the teachings of Jean-Paul Appel-Guéry. In this video I riffed on Moebius’ use of crystals, flowers, (see e.g. Gardens of Aedena) and and transcendental imagery.
