Corey Fuller + Tomoyoshi Date (Illuha) • Simon Scott • Marcus Fischer • Taylor Deupree

Recorded live at Kinse Ryokan, Kyoto, on October 8th, 2012.


Vital Weekly (NL): "Oddly enough, halfway through this thirty-eight minute piece, the word that sprang to mind was 'jazz'."

Brainwashed (.com): "The amount of caution and restraint used by each performer is admirable."

Hatena (JP): "木と水が、柔らかい電子の音によって深く深く共鳴するような音響の連鎖、生成、持続。本作を喩えるなら、そんな言葉が思いつく。"

Chroniques (FR): "Un album jetant des ponts entre des lumières intimes, rappelant ce qu’il est possible, et surtout nécessaire, de faire ensemble."

The electric glow of the street lights fade into the blue evening fog. The broken path narrows and gradually leads away from the wires that hang precariously and endlessly above our heads.

A solitary tree stands detached in a quiet urban environment. Between the branches the cold night air teases small sounds out into the wet air; a whispering voice, bark creaking as the tree responds, unknowingly, to conditions of the landscape. Its leaves litter the cobblestones as the warm transient display of autumn passes. A voice calls, echoing among the low buildings. Several miles away, where nature hushes the city, a small river runs where the shallow water is pure and clean. A dark shape passes close by, its large wings disappearing into the darkness ahead. It heads in, back towards the blue glow. I love this place.

A small group sleeps on marble steps ahead, full of life but still. In goes one coin and then another, until I make my choice as the journey is completed. Bicycle baskets full of paper, spine and tentacle, their small sounds clicking, tapping, scraping. The floorboards are creaking. Small details shared. Between.
