Tetuzi Akiyama (guitar) and Toshimaru Nakamura (no-input mixing board) of Japan and Switzerland-based American drummer Jason Kahn are all leading musicians on the contemporary improvised music scene who perform internationally and have many album releases. The 4 pieces on this CD were performed live by Akiyama, Nakamura and Kahn at Ftarri in Suidobashi, Tokyo, during Kahn's stay in Japan in May 2014. Akiyama's softly resonating guitar makes subtle inroads into the pulsating electronic sounds created by Nakamura and the myriad percussive sounds sent out by Kahn. Permeated with stillness at times, raging stormily at others, their interweaving sounds turn into a living organism that becomes a steadily more detailed and kaleidoscopic as the performances progress.
