Edition of 300. Comes with 16pp booklet. The work presented here for the very first time is the full documentation of Japanese sound artist and instruments builder Akio Suzuki’s solo works performed as part of ‘Resonant Spaces’, a tour with UK saxophonist John Butcher arranged in 2006 by the Arika organisation.  ‘Resonant Spaces’ allowed people to experience sound in some of the remotest regions of Scotland for a series of site-specific performances in natural, prehistoric, manmade and industrial locations including the largest coastal cave in the UK (Smoo Cave), the Wormit reservoir, the largest industrial ice house (Tugnet Ice House), the WWII massive 4 storey, 30m wide cylindrical oil tank located in Lyness, the 2,500 year old - and Scotland’s largest stone circle - Ring of Brodgar, and the Hamilton Mausoleum which has an impressive reverberation decay of 15 seconds!  The fascination for the power of echo and the process of listening in relation to the audience are here magnified to create a very particular bond of rare beauty between the musical creation and nature’s environment.
