Keiko Higuchi LP

Keiko Higuchi LP “Vertical language” Black Editions

“More than simply an album title “Vertical Language” refers to the distinctive musical approach that Higuchi has developed over the past twenty years. Her music is centered on the breathe and pulse- rather than set ‘horizontal’ musical rhythms or structures. It illuminates the connection between the artist’s body and sound. In her music piano chords and voice sound out in an instant and expand, floating off in new directions. The music embraces silence and negative space or the Japanese concept of “Ma” as well as the small ‘imperfections’ that any moment or sound might contain. Each moment in her music is as much imbued with what came before as what will come next – each note expands in space and can never be seen from just one perspective. In her music, Higuchi is constantly taking us to a place that neither she or we can quite yet see. “

Glad to have this solo by Keiko Higuchi on appeared 2 times with An’archives with Albedo Fantatstica and Albedo Gravitas. Here we have her with Louis Inage (Majutsu no Niwa, Yakouchu, Ochibonoame…) on a couple of tracks
