By listening to this quartette, we can all be convinced of the many benefits experience bestows upon a group of musicians. Their velvet smoothness enhances every performance, and the proportionally growing effect on the listener spreads to become a delightful shiver of goose bumps. A nostalgic hint is amplified many times by exquisite as well as dynamic composition and arrangements. A free flight of creativity stiches the blank spaces. These deceptively fragrant elements break into the territory of the listener’s heart and tear it with ruthless fervency. While exposing the characteristics of each instrument, melodies shift among them, occasionally carrying a weird breath of air like a shimmering heat haze (“Showa”, “My Hometown”), vividly and completely depicting the foreground and background of the music (“The Rut”). In spite of presenting a stable texture, the musicians constantly flee from blunt definitions. A gorgeous eccentricity and a bleak stillness; the music connecting both extremities balances both awe and passion. As cutting-edge of transborder music, just how far will this quartette keep ranging? We cannot take our eyes off them. (Kayo Fushiya)
