Had two days of the photo session for our ongoing “Romantic Moment” project. Had a day for outdoor shooting with Cherry Blossoms in full bloom, and also a day for indoor shooting. Cannot thank enough to the amazing photographers, Sonja Kanno and Floris van Eerden, who could capture the natural and spontaneous expressions of Emiko, which could have been a quite bit of a challenge for her! It’s the atmosphere they were able to provide during the session. And of course, not forgetting to mention a fantastic makeup artist, Ruriko Okazaki, who did hair design and make up to prepare for the indoor shooting. She without doubt possesses magic hands!
It is beyond our excitement that we’ll welcome Sonja Kanno, a German artist resides in Tokyo, as a member of our CD production team! She will paint a new work for the CD cover; she will be creating her artwork while listening to our newly made recording. Sonja will also be producing the entire CD package design. This music and art collaboration is what I’ve been dreaming of ! So looking forward to seeing her work!!
Will be updating our creative process, including studio scenes, photo shooting and liner notes production via my newly launched Instagram page! Please check it out!
Had incredible two days, recording for my first piano solo album! I’m forever grateful for a truly fantastic Tonmeister Kohei Seguchi and a mighty piano tuner Eiji Ota. I can unequivocally say that without them it was so not possible to make such an unforgettable experience.️ The album is part of Emiko’s Romantic Series Project.
