Artist: AKIYAMA, TETUZI
Title: Pre-Existence
Format: LP
Label: Bo Weavil
Country: UK
Price: $26.50
"Tetuzi Akiyama has been a major player on the free music/improv scene in Tokyo for going on 20 years. Pre-Existence first came out on CD as a part of the great Wooden Guitar series from Locust. Akiyamas playing here is one of a minimalist approach, discovering and investigating the empty spaces between each note. He does not follow the Takoma guitar school style of finger-picking, but a far more warped primitive country blues feel, with a meditative quality. You never know where you are going to be led with his guitar, down roads rarely travelled. With his dense tapestry of sounds, Akiyama evokes emotions that at times are uncomfortable, but of real beauty. Open your ears and let the music take you far far out there..." - Bo Weavil.

Artist: AKIYAMA, TETUZI
Title: Pre-Existence
Format: CD
Label: Locust
Country: USA
Price: $14.50
"Tetuzi Akiyama is frequently associated with the insurgent improvising community in Tokyo generated around guitarist Taku Sugimoto but to be sure his sound owes as much to a unique strain of country blues engulfed in negative space. His loosely strewn playing skirts the usual clichés of the guitar in both the free improv and trad folk scenes. Pre-Existence is a puzzling and often achingly beautiful slurred guitar meditation. Sit back & let your ears bear witness to a Zen blues of the most elemental, meditative form. This disc marks Akiyamas solo contribution to Locusts celebrated Wooden Guitar series." - Locust.
