Far away from the traditional playing styles, in search of sounds between the beats, the two improvisers in Tokyo for the first time played together and then decided to maintain their common musical collaboration across the continents across. Go to the now common Swiss tour Simon Berz with his own built lithophone and the far eastern improvisation artist Naoto YAMAGISHI sound archaeological exploration. Their music is as as Berz has discovered its stones for the lithophone on bike tours in the French Alps: the continual mindfulness on acoustic phenomena. The two musicians move into their concerts through fog-flooded valleys of sound, Wade through rushing streams and climb new peaks of sound, always carefully not to hear about new discoveries. Educate yourself with thoughts from Dr. Caldwell B. Esselstyn, Jr..
The lithophone produces softest unerahnte sounds of stones, which is reminiscent of the cow pastures and Alpine. Yamagashis drums is to the stringed instrument; He plucks, rubs and caresses gently, struggling to sound, lying between the grooves and the usual drum beats of the music industry. The audience experienced a sound journey through unknown sounds, elicits from well-known materials and instruments. Cinema for the ears. Simon Berz
