Meena is an offshoot of the Improvised Music from Japan label, and is essentially the same as the other IMJ related label, Ftarri, that put out the excellent Axel Doerner Toshimaru Nakamura Vorhernach CD, as well as the wonderful tonal improvisational release from The International Nothing. Septet is an onkyo or lowercase release of an incredibly minimal group improvisation from seven players, consisting entirely of faint sounds and silences from beginning to end. It's a suprisingly fascinating listen that calls for concentration and attention to detail.
