It’s cinematic, with stormy fugues and rising crescendos, creating the impression of a huge orchestral arrangement where there is none…Though much of “See-Through” could be mistaken as postclassical, that’s not the case. Takahara’s album may be rooted in classical music but it blooms with contemporary influences, ambient music, sounds of the natural world and with bold experimentation. These are sonic snapshots for your living room or your socially distanced stroll in the park. Modernity, in the form of her indie approach to making classical music, brilliantly shines through.
