Label: Hitorri

Format: 2CD

Genre: Experimental

In process of stocking


*250 copies limited edition* Minami Saeki is an actor who also has experience as a film director. Energetically engaged in musical activities as well, she is known for her work as a voice performer on the experimental/improvised music scene inside and outside Japan, mainly through collaborations with composer/guitarist Taku Sugimoto.

This album introduces Minami Saeki the composer to the world. Just one of her compositions, "vacances" (2018), is recorded in this 2-CD set. Comprised only of a set of simple rules, the composition offers the musicians a great deal of space for interpretation. Here, "vacances" is performed in six solos, each by a different guitarist active on the international experimental/improvised music scene: on Disc 1, Denis Sorokin from Russia (playing the domra [Russian folk lute]), Fredrik Rasten from Norway (12-string acoustic guitar) and Taku Sugimoto from Japan (electric guitar); and on Disc 2, Takashi Masubuchi from Japan (acoustic guitar), Lauri Hyvärinen from Finland (electric guitar) and Cristián Alvear from Chile (electric guitar).
