FIRST SET Miyama McQueen-Tokita - Koto Tokyo-based koto and bass koto player Miyama McQueen-Tokita’s practice re-imagines the vocabulary and tradition of Japanese music in the contemporary context of improvisation and experimental music. With the occasional addition of electronics and voice, Miyama’s work as a composer and interpreter speaks beyond her foundation in hogaku and experimental music, with influences ranging from Kazue Sawai to Meredith Monk.
SECOND SET (ALBUM LAUNCH) You Sing The Song is a live in-studio performance of improvisations for saxophone and drums/percussion. The recordings are un-edited and comprise the totality of the performance, which unfolded naturally in two 20-minute parts. Aesthetically, the performance is inspired by the traditions of American free-jazz and European free-improvisation, spanning delicate micro-textures to large scale expressions of energy and emotion.
