Book From Hell is the denomination of the concert that Zai Kuning organized on September 2008 in Singapore. This is Asian improvisation surely as not only each musician comes from the Asian bloc, but also because the music, what the sound should be or the time perception, is different from Western improvisation. A cathartic journey in 71 minutes of sound.

"Zai and Dickson are central figures in my activities in East and Southeast Asia. I consider myself truly lucky to have had the chance to perform and make a recording with these two artists."-Otomo Yoshihide, from the liner notes
