Happy to share the first video from our session, July 10th, 2014: Kaoru Watanabe and I improvise, featuring a beautiful hamon set (created by Teppei Saito), gong, and bells. Audio and video by John Klepko, recorded at Timpano Percussion. Stay tuned, more to come!
Here is the second video in the series, Kaoru’s beautiful composition ‘Shinobu’.
Another improvisation, custom-made frame drum (thanks to Cooperman Drums!) and shinobue, Japanese bamboo flute.
And finally a montage of several pieces, including an improvised duo of riqq and flute, an excerpt of ‘Nanafushi’ by Tetsuro Naito and Kaoru’s composition ‘Shinobu’.
