Japanese composer and pianist Hiroko Murakami aka Hiroco.M has announced the release of a new EP called Still which will be out on February 26th via Moderna Records. It follows 2020’s Kasumi on 1631 Recordings. According to the press release, This set of pieces for solo piano is defined by its warmth of character and emotional storytelling. Recorded on a felted upright piano, Murakami invites each listener to join her at the piano for a deeply personal and intimate experience.

Says Murakami “this is my most exposed album ; recent events happening around me and in my family made me reflect on who I am and what I want to transform into. This album is a deep look at myself that I was able to transcribe into music.”
