sven thomas nordlöf This pieces of music reminds med of the japanese notion of "Sabi" which may be described as a feeling of isolation.. a midpoint of the emotion when it is both welcome and unvwelcome, source of both ease and unease (Lucien Stryk)

about

a re-issue of the sonic collages I assembled for the project that I dedicated to the concept of "iki" in 2006

I roughly mixed piano improvisations, vocals (Akemy Takeya and Gina Berrett), koto (Mori Chieko) and found sounds, trying to express the "Structure of Iki" as it is defined by Kuki Shūzō

in 2007 the label "Webbed Hand Records" released those tracks (with some other works added)

in 2008 the label "Rain" released an enlarged version with remixes and further contributions
