It was chilly winter afternoon in the east-side of Tokyo. A little away from the shiny downtown, decorated for Christmas, we experimented with music and dynamically generated drawings at our favorite cafe event space, gif_lab GARAGE
The music was improvised with piano, saxophone, guitar, laptop and some other toys and objects. Following that was a small feast with lovely homemade dishes which made the day even more memorable.
Music by Sawako, Suzueli, Taishi Kamiya, Kynd, live recorded.
If the delicate music pieces have caught your interest, check out more tracks from the Album, nu.it at Basukaru’s label site. The album is available via mail orders and record stores. If you luckily live in Japan, there are more local stores you can just go and get one.
“The “field” of experimental ambient music (if there is such a thing) needs Sawako’s delicate, measured, expansive touch. We connoisseurs yearn for it. Sadly, the woman who describes herself as a “sound sculptor” and a “signal alchemist” is so busy – think of her audio-visual installation at the planetarium of the Sonar Festival or her numerous live performances, including an appearance on Ryuichi Sakamoto’s radio show – that we simply had to wait. This time, the waiting lasted six years before we could put our ears on a follow-up to her exquisite 12k release Bitter Sweet. And, of course, nu.it is well worth the wait.”
