This one, a big tip-off from our friend Jasmine aka Guest aka 1/3rd of Jabu, via Beavis – bristolian-to-the-bone photographer, soundman and gentleman.

This one is a proper jaw-dropper, just listen to that first cut.
Oh my days…. proper stunner. All Bristol-pheasantry folk will know what what’s up already.

Check the background here if you need further enticing (did you listen yet?)

“Acoustic instrumentation and synthesizers meet Mukai’s haunting voice for four sparse, minimalistic compositions unlike anything in either artists’ previous output.

Mesh-Key is pleased to announce the release of a lavish, limited edition run of this heretofore unheard collaboration, finally seeing the light of day 15 years after its recording. Acoustic instrumentation and synthesizers meet Mukai’s haunting voice for four sparse, minimalistic compositions unlike anything in either artists’ previous output.

Chie Mukai is a composer and musician from Osaka, Japan, best known for her underground improv-folk group Ché-SHIZU (PSF), which she founded in 1981. In addition to her song-based work, Mukai has been an active improviser since 1975, when she joined the East Bionic Symphonia group under the leadership of Fluxus violinist-composer Takehisa Kosugi at the Biggako Art School of Tokyo. She has since collaborated with Keiji Haino, John Duncan, Agata Morio and many others. Her primary instrument is the bowed Chinese er-hu, but she also plays piano and percussion.”
