The artist in focus in this second album of the Realm Series is internationally renowned Japanese electric trumpet player Toshinori Kondo. His unconventional approach to the instrument, incredible musicality and expressive aggression won him a well deserved place in a Avantgarde scene since the 80’s.
This album is a mix of Rages strong morphing beats and harmonies as a further legacy of Realm I, and organic soundscapes created by Mr Kondo and his electronic setup.
Official release is on February 05, 2016 as a digital download on all the online stores and streaming platforms.
