Duo YUMENO's long-awaited debut CD is available now!
"Flowers, Birds, Wind, Moon" is a suite of duets, which was commissioned by the duo to Marty Regan over the course of four years, based on the Japanese aesthetic concept of Ka-chō-fū-getsu/Flowers-Birds-Wind-Moon, four core images of nature that recur throughout Japanese literature and the arts.
"In all of these works," Marty Regan writes in the linernotes, "I attempt to evoke a hybrid musical soundscape where imagined boundaries between the "East" and "West" become blurred and transcended while seamlessly blending the two instruments so that become one harmonious musical voice. References to traditional Japanese music, while still present to some extent largely due to the presence of the koto, have receded away from the surface to make way for a more fertile, multidimensional soundscape."
