descriptions, reviews, &c.

"We had our first concert playing all new compositions in July 2012and the second one in October. We were supposed to have one more concert right before this recording but I had to cancel it because I got the flu. Thankfully I recovered quickly and could have this recording. All pieces are new born and not worn out at all. This is the real new born sound that I myself cannot even predict how this project will be."-Satoko Fujii
