is almost a kind of 'tradition' that for almost every kid that is born regarding close pals, relatives to do a release to celebrate the event or almost something like that... don't wanna cut the long story short... however for the birth of little maximos, son of our friends yiannis & theodora the idea was droped by mihalis who suggested a release of yoshio machida whose work i hadn't listened earlier and this one was my first encounter. limited to 70 copies housed (as the black to comm cdr too) in a transparent a4 envelope w/ a design of little amaryllis...
here's the cdr info
composed by Yoshio Machida recorded at Aoyama Book Center, Roppongi in Tokyo in june 9, 2007 Yoshio Machida: Tenor Steel Pan
This is an improvisation for a book store. I sometimes play there. "Read A book With Steel Pan" is the event title. Like a piano performance at lounge in hotel, it's a live BGM. People sometimes stop in front of me, and pass away, choose a book, etc..., just share time and space together through the sound.
Limited to 70 handnumbered copies. A5 size transparent colored plastic envelope with fairytale booklet inside. Artwork: Maria Amaryllis Released: 20/08/2007 Tracklisting: 1. Improvisation total time: 31:28
