Katsura Yamauchi + Arrington de Dionyso

Presented by Nonsequitur. Katsura Yamauchi has been active in the free jazz scene in Japan for nearly three decades. Playing every member of the saxophone family, he is known for his intimate explorations of music in nature, playing while almost completely submerged in rivers. For many years a businessman for an important Japanese company, he chose to retire early with very little security to pursue music exclusively without any regard for compromise. A short interview can be found here. Old Time Relijun frontman Arrington de Dionyso returns to his love of free improvisation with the bass clarinet and multiphonic throat singing.
