The soundtrack of "August in the Water" a fantasy film set in Fukuoka, directed by Sougo Ishii and released in 1995, with music by film musician/composer Hiroyuki Onogawa who are still actively involved in the film industry and composer Kenjiro Matsuo. Onogawa, who wrote most of the music, seemed to be taking a meditative and psychedelic approach at the time, and the mystical atmosphere of the original work combined with it to create a total of 17 tracks filled with a deep musicality that cannot be summarized as ambient. It's a step ahead in many of this type of pieces. Just amazing. At the time, it was a self-produced album that was produced with the enthusiasm of the staff and was sold at theaters, but it seems to be small distributed.
