AOTW | 2 October – 8 October: 仮想夢プラザ – TKX Vault series
We’re starting off the fall with a set of three cool-weather albums brought to you by ambient vaporwave/dreampunk artist telepath. The 仮想夢プラザ began in early 2015 as a way by which to explore long-form ambiance in the context of vaporwave music. In May 2015, three albums from the project dropped on the experimental label TKX Vault (an imprint of Dream Catalogue), all of which were a half-hour long single track of evolving ambient music with the distinct slushwave aesthetic of early telepath releases. These three albums are perhaps the most well-known of the 仮想夢プラザ project, and for good reason – any fan of ambient music and vaporwave will likely hit these at some point in their vaporwave experience, and they’ll quickly be enraptured by the surrealism that beckons from within the misty production. As with previous telepath releases, the titles all allude to love or a want for affection from a mysterious lover, and the albums also began the visual theme of all 仮想夢プラザ albums featuring a Japanese woman on the cover. Enjoy and be blissed out.
