Zai Kuning (g., vo., perc., misc.), Otomo Yoshihide (g., turntables, perc., misc.). 'The Asian improvisation of the present, a connection between Singapore, Tokyo and Hong Kong. A vivid 71-minute performance moving back and forth between turbulence and stillness. 'Book from hell' is the denomination of the concert, Zai Kuning organized on September 2008 in Singapore. CD title is used as it is and also CD cover is the poster of 'Book from hell' concert, Zai designed. This is Asian improvisation surely. According to the reason, not only each musician come from Asian bloc but also what the sound should be or time perception, this music is different from Western improvisation. Glue yourself to your listening on 71 minutes. The you will become a feeling of catharsis ! Zai and Dickson are central figures in my activities in East and Southeast Asia. I consider myself truly lucky to have had the chance to perform and make a recording with these two artists.' from liner note by Otomo Yoshihide
