New release “Fahrenheit”

Release on October 7th

It’s like two of them having a conversation, everything happens right there on the fly, their sound just goes by how they go and with the sound they create, you will realize you are in that “moment” that passes by. That’s where they will get you in.

With having completely different “music” backgrounds, who knows how but they crossed the paths. And that is something that you will be glad about after an hour of experiencing the world that they introduce you to.

Release on June 1st from 1631 Recordings

Sensitivity and sadness are often known to link hands, but it’s usually not done out of love, less a public display of affection and more like a necessary, binding union. Sensitivity doesn’t always equal an automatic brand of sadness, but on Patterns (Repeat), where David Wenngren’s piano shines upon a lake of black silk, illuminated by nothing more than the pale light of the moon, the two not only clasp hands, but are married. and more…

Artwork by Eduard Bigas

Hoshiko Yamane‘s music flutters like a young butterfly, perhaps one just born. The Japanese violinist is based in Berlin, and she’s a current member of Tangerine Dream. On her third solo album, Threads, her violin sings with the positivity of direct, youthful sunlight. Radiant and energetic, but well-paced and sensitive of its place, her violin is blown as if on the lightest of spring winds; an unraveling series of dawn-lit notes which take flight as soon as the sun rises…(read more)

A Story Of A Man-first solo release

I’m very happy to announce here about my first solo EP release.

“A Story Of A Man” released on Nov. 10th from 1631 Recordings. You can listen to all music on Spotify and download from Bandcamp.



Thank you 1631 Recordings for the release and Thank you sonorspace about release information and Review of my new EP.

With “A Story Of A Man” present us the Japanse violinists and composer Hoshiko Yamane finally her first solo violin EP for 1631 Recordings. An EP that was written and produced besides many of her other ongoing projects like Tangerine Dream. Since 2011 she has been playing in the legendary electronic formation that was founded by the music genius Edgar Froese in 1967 and pioneered the genre with more than 100 albums and celestial soundtrack (“Grand Theft Auto V”). Alongside Tangerine Dream, she worked and works also on several musical projects, for instance “”Tukico”, a solo project that mixes violin sounds with Techno music.

Furthermore, she worked and played together with notable artists such as Ceeys from Berlin, the Erased Tapes artist and vibraphone player Masayoshi Fujita or singer/songwriter Jane Birkin. With “A Story Of A Man” combines Hoshiko her experiences that she made over the last year with her wonderful virtuosic violin play. Especially on the captivating, up-tempo piece “Into The Dark” scintillate the highly talented composer, who has been playing the violin since the age of 4. Also, the opener “Before The Dawn”, a canonical track that was composed around two different themes and the other works are wonderful musical pulsating, atmospheric classical musical blisses. ​
