|august 2008 release ; the first release in this new omega point series offering “experimental music of japan” ... starting out with a straight-up recital of pieces byfeldman, ichiyanagi, & oginsky, the disc then flows into an extended electro-acoustic improvisation by ichiyanagi, pianist akiko samukawa, and laptop musician tomomi adachi that runs the gamut from spry, melodic interplay to full-on explosions of string-rattle & filtered electronic noise (listen to the sound-sample) ...|
as always, osamu has outdone himself with a gorgeous edition, featuring a wrap-around obi that holds the 8-panel fold-out sleeve together. highly recommended !!!
