probably the most well-known musician of the lot, HAKOBUNE is takahiro yorifuji, ambient musician now based in tokyo. active since 2007, his past works were released on various labels like install (operated by david tagg and brian grainger/milieu), u-cover, waterscape or hibernate. pure evocative drone!

vital weekly 819 review:
There are some similarities to be drawn from this new quartet of releases on Taalem. They all have one piece only and all are recorded in Japan. Ieva is the only French musician of this lot, but he lives in Kyoto. Hakubone is the only musician who has some 'fame', for he has had releases on U-Cover, Waterscape and Hibernate. The rest is all new to me. [...] Hakubone's piece is 'Believed Remains' and is on the darker side of drone music. Maybe we are dealing here with sounds derived from an organ with some sound effects. Over the course of twenty-three minutes Hakubone changes very gentle the color of the sound - more darker it seems - and adds very carefully a bunch sound effects to it. Here too we have the impression that whatever development takes place it rather below the surface of the drone, but even then less apparent than on the Hitoshires disc. I think there could have been a bit more to this one. [FdW]
