"This soundscape is like a warm, sunlit place. It makes me feel happy, perhaps because it's like a flashback. It goes nicely with afternoon tea." - EYE(Boredoms)

"My favorite music is the music I haven't yet heard. I don't hear the music I write: I write in order to hear the music I haven't yet heard." - John Cage

Have you ever listened to babies' musical performances seriously? Some time ago, London-based improvised music label ,LMC had released children's music (with adult improvisations). New York-based Mulatta Records had released children (ages 3 through 7) album, influenced by recordings of the Art Ensemble of Chicago and free jazz. But the artists in this album are all under 18 months old! The pieces on this album are live recordings with no editing. Playing zither, piano, steel pan, toy turntable and computer-controlled pacifier... 10 babies are gathered together from several countries. You will be impressed by their unique sensitivities! "*Music for Baby!" (amorfon004) is a message to baby from adult; "Kindermusik" is a message to adult from baby!

「映り込む陽だまりの様なサウンド・スケープが伝わってきて幸せな気持ちになるのは、思い出すからかな。当然この陽光感は午後TEAとも極端に相性が良い。」 EYE (ボアダムス)

赤ちゃんはみんな天才です。赤ちゃん達の演奏を正面から聴いたことがありますか? ここにおさめられた曲は赤ちゃん達の演奏を一発録りしたものです。赤ちゃんの演奏だけを集めたCDとしては世界初。おもちゃ、チター、ピアノ、スチールパン、ターンテーブルおもちゃに、コンピュータ制御されたおしゃぶり楽器まで、世界6カ国から1.5才未満の赤ちゃん10人が参加。独特な感性にあなたもハッとさせられるはず! 大好評だった前作amorfon004「*Music for Baby!」が子どもの感性を広げるCDだったのに対し、今度は大人が子どもから学ぶCDです!
