Ima no oto 今の音  New track with Hiroko Komiya

green leaf 5731

Here is the fourth published track with Hiroko: Ima no oto 今の音. This one was recorded on an early summer morning/late afternoon. From Hiroko:

Early summer day, it was our 2nd appointment of same timing recording. 
This Japanese title means “the sound of now”.Morning in Maryland, U.S. and late afternoon in Toscana Italy. In these distant places, we recorded the sound of that moment of that day. Field recording of the driving car and bird voice, etc. And acoustic sound of breathing and Russian harp. This track is a meeting of sound of that moment. More we will continue this series !

More to come.
