Kazue Sawai is a traditional Japanese koto player who, together with her husband Tadao Sawai, has been active in the avant-garde and has discovered new possibilities for contemporary Japanese music. Each piece retains the traditional sound of the koto, but reflects a western sensibility and a contemporary sense of tone, creating a new form of contemporary Japanese music. A1 is a piece for 17 strings koto and percussion composed by Maki Ishii. This is a duet with Sumire Yoshihara, a percussionist who has produced many excellent solo works of her own. As with Midori Takada's "Through the Looking Glass, this is a wonderful piece of work that can be interpreted in the current avant/post-ambient sense.

A1: 漂う島
B1: いするぎ
