Notes & Reviews:

Akemi Naito's music is the art of a sound-poet - a sensitive shaper of images that touch upon memory, distance and a deep sense of longing. Naito's musical language embraces a wide range of materials, frequently delighting in subverting our expectations through both the inclusiveness of her vocabulary and the unpredictably lyrical manner in which her pieces unfold. As we listen into the world of Akemi Naito's intimate music, lush melodies and harmonies sometimes dissolve into the gritty noises of woodwind multiphonics, harp pedal glissandi, or the harsh percussive attack of the Satsuma Biwa, reminding us that her sublime journey is not without its occasional reference to private and profoundly felt inquietude.
