Post a Comment. Friday, July Downgoing Slab - Yumiko Tanaka, Liner notes This music was composed and recorded at the venue Bridge in Osaka on April 17th Bridge is located high above the ground in the middle of the amusement park called Festival Gate - right between slot machines and the big roller coaster. I don't think Festival Gate is Osaka's hot spot, the park is nearly empty, but Bridge is a nice and spacious venue.
With relatively small acoustic instruments we tried to fill Bridge with sound and music that we find interesting. Meanwhile, we could see the roller coaster passing by every now and then - we could also hear it, and feel it. The whole building would shake each time it passed by, like a small earthquake.
Maybe this wasn't the perfect recording situation, but listening to the music now I feel it gained an identity of it's own. The music on this CD somehow made me think of plate tectonics. This is music about submerging identity, whether in the free interaction of sound, floating high in space in an aged amusement park or diving in the oceanic imagination to the earth's shifting plates.
