Midori Takada is a Japanese composer and percussionist, described as a mid-1970s pioneer of ambient and minimalist music. She was a member of the groups Mkwaju Ensemble (early 1980s) and Ton-Klami (early 1990s).

In early 1983, Takada recorded in three days her first solo LP, Through The Looking Glass. She performed all parts on the album, with diverse instrumentation including percussion, marimba, gong, reed organ, bells, ocarina, vibraphone, piano and glass Coca-Cola bottles. Upon release, the album was not commercially popular.

However, in the late 2010s, thanks to the YouTube recommendation algorithm, the video topped over two million views and Through The Looking Glass became a highly-sought collector’s item, original vinyl copies of the album starting fetching over $1,000. Finally reissued on vinyl and CD in 2017, it was awarded ‘Best new reissue’ by Pitchfork and became the second best-selling release of the year on Discogs.
