Avant-primitive improv from the duo of Takehisa Kosugi (Violin, Recorder, Voice) and Takashi Kazamaki (Percussion, Harmonica). Recorded in 1983, Kosugi shows yet another side of himself, trading his drone for a more free-hillbilly style, which meshes perfectly with Kazamaki's masterful tumbling and clattering. A ritualistic, shamanic vibe: the music has natural flow, nothing seems forced, percussions are all over, underlining the shamanic explorations for the soulful violin (or bamboo flutes) played by Kosugi. The playing is passionate yet controlled, elegant, immaginative, there’s plenty of feeling, intimacy, tension.
