"After years of pleading Siwa finally convinced Chie Mukai and Masayoshi Urabe to offer up this much needed document of their ongoing collaborative work. The original recordings were culled from live performances between1990-2001 and were then edited by Urabe. Chie Mukai should be known to many for her work within the more structured confines of her band Che-Shizu but she also has an impressive history in improvised music that goes back to her time as a student with Takehisa Kosugi in the mid 70s. The Che-Shizu albums and her two previous solo releases (a CD on PSF and the out of print LP on Siwa) have introduced a select few to the meditative drone of the er-hu (a traditional two string violin) but here she can also be heard on vocals, piano, toys and various percussion instruments. Likewise Urabe, known mostly for slowly wrenching unfathomable screams from his alto saxophone expands his instrument choices to employ a soprano saxophone, some percussion, harmonicas, chains and a particularly vicious electric guitar. This is passionate, physical and highly individual improvised music with an intensely human soul. A companion video released on the Japanese "There" label is also available and does more to explain the physical nature of these performances than any audio document could. But you have to buy the LP first. This is a vinyl only edition of 400 copies and comes in a silkscreened sleeve." -Siwa.
