Bandcamp pick of the week: Ryoko Akama - Kise​-Tsu

This is an album where Ryoko Akama (previously Kuwajima) drifts her interest between electronics and traditional instrument use. 12 tracks are dedicated to each month of a year with the final track called `Leap Year`.

She worked with 12 instrumentalists, from friends to street buskers in London, to realise each pieces, which are sent to a Japanese painter, Yamada Hidetoshi, who drew beautiful pictures for individual piece. Then Ryoko created a poem for those paintings, coming with organic and soft touch of books.
