I think every musician I've chosen is a really experimental musician. These are all musicians who want to reference that experimentation when composing their tracks. Historically, most of Japan's contemporary music was heavily influenced by Western and ethnic music, so I needed to dig through that. I didn’t put them into this playlist, but my favorite Japan contemporary composers are Toru Takemitsu and Akira Nishimura.
