Album Review

Koichi, Makigami – “Moon Ether ” – [Doubt Music]

Jawbone   3/13/2007   A Library, CD

Vocal pyrotechnics spiced up with the electronics of a theremin with moogerfooger (analog effects pedals), Makigami Koichi???s album begins and ends with Tuvan-style throat singing. In between he sounds like everybody from Popeye to a Buddhist monk. The aural soundscape of the album is quiet, but is kept interesting with occasional outbursts and unexpected sounds.

Koichi dedicates this album to synthesizer pioneer Robert Moog, and Tuvan throat singing master, Gennadi Tumat.

In the past, Koichi has performed with the likes of John Zorn and Meredith Monk.
