sample the album:
"Four Pillars of Destiny is the title of a CD by the quartet of Maki Hachiya (voice, objects), Shota Koyama (drums), Hugues Vincent (cello) and Yuta Yokoyama (trumpet). The title seems a reference to Seven Pillars of Wisdom by T.E. Lawrence (of Arabia). Anyway, the CD counts eleven short improvisations recorded at the beginning of this year in Sapporo.
Vincent, who studied classical cello and jazz, toured all over the world, but I have the impression he is often in the company of Japanese colleagues. Maki Hachiya is a voice performer, pianist, composer, and lyricist from Tokyo. Yuta Yokoyama from Sapporo plays trumpet since his youth. After studying jazz he choose for playing improvised music only. Shota Koyama is a self-taught drummer and already for decades part of the Japanese jazz scene.
These experienced improvisers deliver a set of very fresh sounding music. The improvisations have a prominent role for the expressive vocals of Maki, making you feel in Japan all the way. In each improvisation they take another route, with equal involvement of all participators. Just a record of playful improvised music"-Dolf Mulder, Vital Weekly
