Pauline Oliveros/Miya Masaoka “Accordion Koto” CD



“Though an unlikely combination – accordion and koto – it is not so much about the instruments as about the energies of the music that comes from the intensity of listening — listening as close to ‘now’ as possible. We know that our consciousness is delayed by a fraction of a second that the brain interprets as now — however the body is instantaneous in its perception. Thus the phenomena [sic] of playing and becoming conscious of what has played – been played – is a continually surprising experience in such improvisation.” – Pauline Oliveros
