Kira Kira (Japan/Australia/New Zealand)

Explosive and beautiful. Kira Kira features internationally acclaimed Japanese improvisers and composers Satoko Fujii and Natsuki Tamura, and Australian keyboard player composer, Alister Spence. Their work is a suite in four parts that mixes piano and trumpet with electronics and drums.

‘Kira Kira weights layer upon layer of sound until it approaches a breaking point that never quite materializes. Instead, the music finds its way to someplace near perpetuity and how it gets there is never obvious. It’s awe-inspiring music.
