Osamu Kitajima 喜多嶋 修, also known by the pseudonym Justin Heathcliff, is a Japanese musician, producer, composer, and multiinstrumentalist. After studying the classical guitar and the piano as a child, in the 1960s Kitajima was a member of his cousin Yūzō Kayama's band The Launchers. After graduating from Keio University, and already a successful composer of TV and advertising jingles, he moved for one year to the UK in 1971, which brought him in to contact with British folk and psychedelic rock. Lovely, synth-y new age courtesy of Japenese musician Osamu Kitajima. There's a great deal of 'organic' instrumentation - pan flute, koto, acoustic guitar, chimes, strings, harp, etc. amid the synths, making for a layered, appealingly textural sound. Track listing: 1.
