01.06.16 Kuwayama Kiyoharu, Kijima Rina

01.06.16 is Trente Oiseaux’s second release of improvised instrumental music. Kuwayama Kiyoharu, cello, and Kijima Rina, violin, took their instruments to the bottom of a highway at midnight, and improvised along with the passing vehicles. Both are formidable players, and so well attuned to each other that their improvisations cannot be told from highly complex compositions. Like other improvising players, they have adopted the musical vocabluary, and musical gestures of contemporary classical music, and are using them freely, but also drawing from a great number of other influences, making their own music very rich, and inventive. The particular spatial impression created by cars going by is making their recordings an even more fascinating listening experience. We are inviting you to to discover this exiting, and highly enganging work!
