Ikue Mori

Tracing The Magic

Label: Tzadik

Format: CD

Genre: Electronic

In stock


*In process of stocking.* "Tracing The Magic" is Ikue Mori's most varied and fabulous CD to date, and an absolute masterpiece. Seven pieces, each inspired by (and dedicated to) women artists whose powerful visions and and creativity led them to create well into the 80s and 90s: Joan Jonas, Louise Bourgeois, Agnes Martin, Judit Reigl, Leonora Carrington, Jakucho Sekuchi, and Toko Shinoda

The ensembles are some of today's most exciting musicians, including new friends (Charmane Lee, Sae Hashimoto) and old (Sylvie Courvoisier, Makigami Koichi, Erik Friedlander, Satoko Fujii, Natsuki Tamura, Zeena Parkins, Ned Rothenberg, David Watson). Atmospheric, lyrical, textured and evocative, the music is driven by Ikue's unique electronics and showcases her brilliant ear for orchestration, melody and texture.
