Japan based drummer and percussionist, Naoto Yamagishi and Australian saxophonist, Rhys Butler team up on this intense live performance at Kissa Sakaiki, Tokyo. We at SoundOut feel it is important that this document of the exploration of the harmonic, inharmonic and acoustically distorted sounds of a muted saxophone and percussion, be heard. There was no use of electronic distortion or effects in this performance.
