about

Stunning document of the debut meeting of this international trio. Recorded live at the Playhouse, Kitakyushu, Japan in January 2009, Tima Formosa retains a mysteriously alien atmosphere throughout it's 3 lengthy explorations with Ambarchi's mesmerising textures and signature, deep guitar tones beautifully merging with O'Rourke's Tudor-esque piano-feedback interjections. Haino provides the icing on the cake via his melancholic, higher consciousness choral vocals and bewildering electronics. Co-released with the Center for Contemporary Art, Kitakyushu with deluxe packaging designed by Stephen O'Malley of Sunn 0)))
