Satoko Fujii: Crustal Movement

Read "Crustal Movement" reviewed by Jeff Schwartz


In the first few minutes of “Masoandro Mitsoka," a soft wash of white noise becomes differentiated into piano, percussion, electronics and two trumpets as the acoustic instruments move from breath and friction sounds to identifiably instrumental ones.
