In addition to working as a sound engineer for a church in San Diego, Keope is still mysterious musician who produces and presents home-made music that combines various instruments and electronics. This is believed to be his first confirmed work, an privatly produced in 1986. Dreamy home-recorded pop full of impressions of pale light, as if tracing the scenery of a distant memory. Total 10 tracks includes, "Adam Walking With The Lord", which has an indescribable atmosphere with the sound of synths and percussion, variant dreamy pop "A Song Of Joy For Flute", and “Latin Luau” gives you a feel of the Hawaiian atmosphere that inspired the artist name. Amazing piece. 

米サンディエゴにて教会の音響技師の傍ら、様々な楽器とエレクトロニクスを組み合わせたホームメイドミュージックを制作・発表していた宅録音楽家Keope。本作は確認されている最初の作品と見られる86年の自主制作盤。シンプルなサウンドながら淡く消えてはまた現れる、まどろみのような印象を抱かせるドリーミーサウンド。シンセが鳴りながらゆったりと打楽器が打ち込まれていく何とも言えない空気感を燻す”Adam Walking With The Lord”、変種のドリーミーポップ”A Song Of Joy For Flute”、名義のきっかけになっているというハワイの雰囲気を感じさせる”Latin Luau”など全10曲。シュリンク付きの美品。
