Product Description


technical comment

  • Fumio Yasuda (composition) and Stefan Winter (soundscapes) create three soundscapes with the title On The Path Of Death And Life. The album was composed and created after the catastrophe in Fukushima in Japan. The pianist Fumio Yasuda performs his works and improvisations with the singer Akimuse and Nobuyoshi Ino on bass. Mariko Takahashi and Stefan Winter record the soundscapes (musique concrète) traveling through Japan. Nobuyoshi Araki takes photos of human beings, flowers and from the 'paradise', which appear in the booklet.

    "On The Path Of Death And Life" creates the sensation of experiencing a particular acoustic environment using the searched and found sounds and noises with musical performances. Each of the three parts has the same time frame of 22 minutes, nevertheless the parts are individual and self-contained. Originally 22 is a master number, which symbolizes the overcoming of obstacles and also high energy both in the shadow and in the light.


    Fumio Yasuda - piano
    Nobuyoshi Ino - bass

    Stefan Winter - soundscapes
