Psst: Taki's about to launch another record, the debut recording by his free improv trio with violinist Johannes Ammon and bassist/cellist Andrew Blickenderfer, SABANA BLANCA.
6th Sense Living Room, the new release by percussionist Takaaki ‘Taki’ Masuko’s free improv trio, Sabana Blanca, will delight fans of spontaneous composition, chamber music, and world folk music alike. 6th Sense’s five acoustic sound paintings capture why this trio—completed by violinist Johannes Ammon and bassist/cellist Andrew Blickenderfer—flourished on the avant-garde fringes of Boston’s contemporary classical music scene during the late 1990s. Using a palette of percussion, strings, off-the-cuff vocalizations, and unrestrained imagination, Masuko, Ammon, and Blickenderfer blend post-modern orchestral colors with the sounds of our most primal human impulses to render an instinctively motivic conversation that will surprise listeners with its intentionality and playfulness.
