Product Description

Extraordinary collaboration between American guitarist Henry Kaiser and Kiku Day a shakuhachi player from Copenhagen of Japanese, Irish, Russian and American ancestry. Day plays the ji-nashi (natural bore) shakuhachi and studied under Atsuya Okuda in Japan, known for his improvisational playing of traditional tunes. This has put her in good stead to improvise with Henry Kaiser on an album that explores the clash of serene, meditative zen and the violent recklessness of kaiju (strange beast) represented by Godzilla and other strange creatures. 12 tracks. 1. Gojira Examines a Monk in Meditation 2. Anguiras Pacifies the Mind 3. Fairy Mothra's Preaching Sign 4. Gyaos Washes the Bowl 5. Dagora Calls His Own Master 6. Varan's Wheel 7. Gamera's Dog 8. This Mind is Not Pigmon 9. Ultraman Investigates 10. Jiger Twirls a Flower 11. A Philosopher Asks King Ghidorah 12. Tripping Over the Oxygen Destroyer.
