New release with Twinkle³

Postby silentwings on Fri Oct 21, 2022 12:14 pm

Upon This Fleeting Dream is a new release by Twinkle³ featuring David Sylvian & Kazuko Hohki.

Sylvian features on 7 of the 10 tracks reading short Japanese poems in English translation. Renditions of the poetry in the original Japanese are given by Kazuko Hohki.

Twinkle³ is a trio including Clive Bell who is a virtuoso player of Eastern wind instruments including the shakuhachi. The woody sound of his playing permeates the album, set against the modular synths of David Ross and Richard Scott. Bell has previously appeared on The Dolphin Brothers album Catch the Fall, JBK's _ism and Sylvian's When Loud Weather Buffeted Naoshima.

I interviewed Clive Bell to find out more about the project and the poetry that is recited by Sylvian & Hohki.

The article can be found here, with links to bandcamp in the footnotes where the full album is now available for download, with the vinyl available for pre-order: https://sylvianvista.com/2022/10/21/thr ... sty-night/

Upon This Fleeting Dream got 4 stars in the new Mojo. The header of the review is: "The former voice of Japan features on an electro-acoustic rumination on morality". In the review there are the following lines: "David Sylvian's closing declaration is "empty handed, I entered the world, barefoot, I leave it". He tenderly speaks the English translations, while Kazuko Hohki (familiar from Frank Chickens) is his Japanese-language counterpart. (...) As well as his voice, Sylvian has brought field recordings and images fo the artwork on board; he is integral here."

No CD-version available so it seems. Just download + LP.
