OJP052: Tetsuroh Konishi / Inner Winds

New album from prolific Japanese trumpet player Tetsuroh Konishi recorded in his home studio based on some travelings in the Gumma prefecture.

As always with Tesuroh San, the music is a mix of ethereal trumpets using his very unique way of bleeding in the horn and using some electronics on the top to dress beautifully the ensemble. A very nice elegant way to finish 2020 and travel a bit in your head. (see also his solo previous works on OJP001, OJP002 and OJP027, in a more experimental dance electronic duo with Ai Kisaragi on OJP021 and OJP034 and in collaboration with Morgen Wurde on OCD027, OCD040 and OCD045 or with Alinovsky on OJP050).

Tetsuroh about the album:
‘The album theme was written while visiting some of the most famous Japanese mountain peaks:
Mount Myogi Arafune and Haruna in Gunma prefecture, Sakitama from an ancient burial site in Saitama prefecture. Only Unkai is not a mountain name but is a sea of clouds.
There are more than 200 famous mountains and sceneries in Japan that bring a lot of tourists and Japanese to travel when they have free times but my interest was more inside the inner mind connected with those places. I was following the call of nature more than the past history about those locations and tried to be as spontaneous with music as I could be. The final action was trying to be as pure as possible when recording those tracks.
When recording my trumpet, I used a very difficult technique of breathing that we call tokusyu / souhou which is a way of not using the mouthpiece trying to imitate bird songs, a few pedals and synthesizers on the track Sakitama and Unkai.'
