Kodomo — Concept 16

It’s been a while. Sorry about that. Work has been getting the best of me lately.

This song was introduced to me by my buddy Carolina. At first I thought Kodomo would be another one hit wonder in the Ambient genre, but it turns out a lot of his stuff is fantastic.

His music reminds me of college and the first two years after graduating. Artists like Milieu, Port Blue, Port Royal, Marconi Union, Mosaik, Bersarin Quartett, and Brian Grainger bring back memories of late nights cramming for a final. Maybe ill dig those up again and see how they sound on the new stereo…

Speaking of which, I finally made a rather substantial upgrade to my system with the addition of my new Magnepan 1.7s. Those suckers are 5'4" tall and while they seem rather imposing, the sound just melts into the air. Great investment.

What’s next? Probably a power amp upgrade, though i’ll likely get rid of my UMC1 and move into something higher powered. I like Emotiva, but the unit I have has some really weird quirks such as randomly failing to pass audio unless I switch sources quickly. The LEDs are beginning to fade in and out too. I guess its not worth the money at this point. We’ll see…

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
