Licht-Akiyama Trios: Tomorrow Outside Tomorrow (Editions Mego)

Label: Editions Mego    
Released in: Austria    

"Alan Licht (USA) and Tetuzi Akiyama (Japan) have each explored the lines that divide improvisation, composition, folk, blues, and experimental music. It was inevitable that their careers and styles would cross paths. Tomorrow Outside Tomorrow captures a meeting of minds and techniques in the form of two extended works that blur genre, with Licht on guitar and electronics and Akiyama on guitar.

"Blues Deceiver" presents itself as dank blues; it's a dirty, crawling mass of feedback, fluctuating vibrations, garage frequencies, and distant interference, featuring Oren Ambarchi on guitar. The various musical and nonmusical elements weave into a music that showcases individual contributions coalescing as a holistic whole.

"Tomorrow Outside Tomorrow" features Rob Mazurek on cornet. Here the trio expands on the workshop blues drone, with Mazurek placing a somber jazz card on the table. What begins as a loose sound study evolves into an introverted and melancholic exploration of mood, atmosphere, interwoven notes, texture, sound, guitar, and electronics.

Tomorrow Outside Tomorrow unveils a nebulous new music."-Editions Mego
