The first album from cru, a modern classical music unit formed by Takahiro Kido and Yuki Murata, members of Anoice and RiLF.
This beautiful collaboration album was made only with acoustic musical instruments such as a piano recorded at a concert hall, harmonium and cembalo recorded at a solitary house which served as the model for the violin atelier in Studio Ghibli's "Whispers of the Heart," and electronic sounds made by processing the sounds of these acoustic musical instruments.
You'll be able to listen to awesome piano pieces for four hands that have a great tense atmosphere and miraculous beauty by their improvisation in marvelous coordination. Please enjoy the wonderful sounds that only music instruments and the place where they was performed have!!
In addition, this album includes the masterpiece "re-silence," which was used as background music in "Internet is a Desert", an award-winning short film in the Venice International Short Film Festival, directed by Can Evgin from the UK.
