Kumi Takahara talks about breaking the classical habit in her 15 Questions interview

The title of this album is “See-through”, I also used “Daydream” and “Transparent” as keywords. It’s an image of the scenery in my deep psyche set to music. It could be a nostalgic memory, or a dream that I had someday … It’s a view that I usually forget. It could be the ocean, a forest, a city, or a room, and it varies from song to song.
“Artegio” was composed on a piano in an actual museum in the forest. “Sea” and “Tide” include the sound of waves that I recorded when I went to the beach. I would be happy if I could create music that allows the listener to dive deep into their own heart.
In order to achieve this, I aimed to create pure music without impure motives and without muddy sounds. I was too careful and it took too much time, though.
