Listen.com (USA/Noah E.) said :
This Japanese composer and synthesizer virtuoso seamlessly blends electronic and Classical styles using all-analog equipment and a team of beautiful vocalists. Downtempo breakbeats with liquid basslines feature medieval female vocals, jazzy keyboard riffs, and gentle, lyrical guitar solos. Deep-space explorations inspired by Tangerine Dream make use of similar vocal tracks, reminiscent of Enya or perhaps Lisa Gerrard; hymns from the Requiem Mass are set to bombastic, orchestral Progressive House tracks. Other tunes are simply Bach-style chorales accompanied by synthesizer in a style reminiscent of Wendy Carlos. And there's even some frenetic, operatic Drum 'n' Bass. Anzai's music runs the gamut -- those in search of orchestral electronic music need look no further.

Standing ovation for an Electronica Masterpiece.
This album is testimony to a muscian that is very serious
about the craft. We found it to expertly proffessional
in it's delivery and exciting with each track. This album
is a very carefully constructed masterpiece of true blue
Electronica.A standing ovation!!

Kori

This might be the best superior CD for the present.
Magnificent sound scale by long-careered Moog user and professional sopranos. The most trancy I've ever heard. I'm astonished at the grand scale(expansion) and the thickness and the level of the sound of this CD! Truly magnificent world! The greatest masterpieces I've ever heard!

From "fao Casa Gazette" By Stavros Moschopoulos

combination of Rock+Classic+Techno+Church Music
Fumitaka Anzai - Kyrie: Canto Cybernetico. Fumitaka Anzai is a Japanese
composer of electronic music. His array of electronic equipment is
impressive, if not overwhelming... He has mostly composed music for the
Japanese animation films. His Kyrie: Canto Cybernetico is his first
non-animation soundtrack album and it is an eloquent interpretation of
classical music via the electronic media. As a matter of fact, the album is
described as a combination of Rock+Classic+Techno+Church Music.!!! Fumitaka
Anzai is a classical composer for the 3rd millenium, using and subjugating
the cold electronic machines, giving them soul and warmth, coupling them
with the human voice (& chorus) and interlacing them with the vibrant voice
of the violin and guitar to capture the sounds of TODAY. A masterpiece that
is intriguing, exciting, contemporary, respectful and respected. Certainly a
standing ovation for Fumitaka-san

Fumitaka Anzai,Synthesizer Specialist,Composer
Fumitaka was born in Yokohama Japan, on November 16th 1958. His father being professional violin player and his mother teaching violin and piano, he began his piano lessons at age of 4. Because of his mother being Catholic, when Fumitaka graduated from Junior High, he chose to go to a Catholic High School where he was first exposed to real church music.
At age of 17, Fumitaka won the prize at "Roland Synthesizer Tape Contest" and there after he began playing keyboards and composing professionally. And surprisingly few years later he was asked to perform with Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra.
The first big breakthrough for him was writing soundtracks for mega hit animation "Uruse Yatsura" in 1983.Soundtrack album was released through Pony/Canyon and became most successful soundtrack of the year.
In 1985," Expo 85" was held in Tsukuba Ibaraki and Fumitaka was asked to write it's Official Theme. He alsocomposed music and constructed "NEC C&C Theater" using 27 video screens and 96 speakers, giving audience world's first computerized interactive movie.
Because of his knowledge and love towards computer, in 1987 he was introduced in Apple Computer's10th Anniversary Magazine "So Far" as only Japanese, and since then he has appeared in many of their promotional videos.
In 1995, Fumitaka had assembled world's very first synthesizer CD-ROM entitled "Anz's Vintage Synthesizer Museum". In this CD-ROM he introduces his tremendous collections of vintage analog synth to Fairlight CMI, which he has used to record this entire album (his collection includes Moog Mudular to Roland System 700).
And now finally at the end of the decade, Fumitaka is ready to launch all his great compositions he had written in the past 3 years. He has carefully made his very first solo album entitled "Kyrie: Canto Cybernetico" .
He explains " I had few other plans for my first solo album but I thought to myself, I should start with most comfortable idea and so here it is. This album is a compilation of all the music I love no matter how different they are. I have always listened church music together with Emerson, Lake & Palmer back in my school days, and naturally being a synthesizer player I have always been involved in making techno music So the album contains all that with fat analogue synthesizer sounds" .
Although it might sound a little odd for some people in the beginning, Fumitaka's music will soon in your mind wanting to hear more and more. Listen to his very well crafted music using his top knowledge as a synthesizer specialist.
Enjoy!!

From Progression Issue 38 (winter/spring 2001) By John Collingej

Irreverent, crazy, beautiful... progressive
Style : Electronics/Symphonic Progressive/Opera
Rating (**** = Excellent)
Sound : ***1/2, Composition : ***, Musicianship : ****, Performance : ****
Total Rating : 14.5

Here is one totally out of left field: electronic/symphonic progressive musical arrangements serving as the backdrop for opera singers. That's right! And you know what? It works!
The madman/genius behind this concept is Japanese synth wiz Fumitaka Anzai, doing a soft of Wendy Carlos Switched On Bach thang with real-life opera singers led by soprano-alto Miho Haga. Anzai employs some 36 different keyboards and effects, joined by a choir, three primary vicalists, guitar, violin, and other support.
Make no mistake - the operatic vocals are straight out of the old school, but Anzai has no qualms about doing all sorts of wild, weird things behind, alongside, and over the top of them. Check out his crazy meanderings and astonishing piano work on "Credo" for instance - like nothing you've ever heard. Elsewhere, we've got swingin', jazzy vibes and pulsing disco beats "Sanctus" somehow complementing the piously ethereal operatic warvblings. Too much!
Some of this will sound familiar... well, in a sense: Anzai covers "Kyrie Eleison" and "Ave Maria" among others. Irreverent, crazy, beautiful... progressive. A truly inspired piece of musical cross-pollination if ever there was one. Recommended, especially for those who think they've heard it all. - John Collinge
