Isao Tomita, born in April 1932 and known simply as Tomita, was a Japanese composer widely regarded as one of the great pioneers of electronic music. He made extensive use of synthesizers to create new sounds to accompany and enhance his electronic realizations of acoustic instruments. His futuristic science-fiction themes were influential for synth-pop and trance-like rhythms that were to follow. Many of his albums are adaptations of familiar classical music pieces. Tomita received four Grammy Award nominations for his 1974 album Snowflakes Are Dancing based on the music of Debussy. He passed away in 2016. Featured here are two back to back albums, Kosmos and The Bermuda Triangle from 1978. The Bermuda Triangle was released in Europe as an LP with the longer CD version released only in Japan.
