Hautzinger / Okura / Akiyama: Rebuses (Monotype)
Label: Monotype    
Released in: Poland    


"Franz Hautzinger (quartertone trumpet), Ahiko Okura (reeds) and Tetuzi Akiyama (tape delayed electric guitar) have a recording from 2004, from Tokyo and compared to the previous one, this is a more 'relaxed' work. All instruments sound at times like they are supposed to. We hear a guitar! We hear wind instruments. But this trio cleverly combines that more or less old fashioned way of improvising with some of the 'newer' techniques to treat instruments as objects that are capable of producing any kind of sound. For some reason or the other which I am not exactly can point out, this all sounds a bit more easy to access than the Doneda et al release. Not just high pitched sounds, shrieking and terrifying the objects, but with some more deeper end towards the low end sounds. Both of these discs require ones full attention, but both of them are highly rewarding musical improvisations."-Frans de Waard, Vital Weekly



"Tetuzi Akiyama (Akiyama Tetsuji) (born 13 April 1964) is a Japanese guitarist, violinist, and instrument-maker. Akiyama formed the improvisation group Madhar in 1987, and the classical ensemble Hikyo String Quintet in 1994 (which also included Taku Sugimoto on cello). In 1995, Akiyama and Sugimoto formed a guitar duo, and played at venues in New York City, Chicago, and Detroit. During this time, Akiyama was also a member of Keiji Haino's Nijiumu outfit. Akiyama also formed Sutekina Tea Time (a duo with Takashi Matsuoka) and Mongoose (a trio with Taku Sugimoto and Utah Kawasaki).

In 1998 Akiyama began organising a monthly concert series, The Improvisation Meeting, with Toshimaru Nakamura. In December 2006 he began a regular duo with Hervé Boghossian (France), they toured in Europe (France, Portugal, Switzerland, England) several times in 2007 (in May, October & December) & also played in Tokyo during Hervé Boghossian Japanese tour in August/September 2008. In 2009 he worked with David Sylvian."
