Over the years Alan Licht (USA) and Tetuzi Akiyama (Japan) have individually explored the lines that divide improvisation, composition, folk, blues and experimental music. It was inevitable their careers and styles would cross paths. Tomorrow Outside Tomorrow captures a meeting of minds and techniques landing two extended works which blur genre and cliche.

Blues Deceiver presents itself as a dank blues: a dirty crawling mass of feedback, fluctuating vibrations, garage frequencies and distant interference. Featuring Oren Ambarchi the various musical and nonmusical elements weave about creating a music showcasing individual contributions hovering as a holistic whole. There is beauty in this beast.

Tomorrow Outside Tomorrow features the talents of Rob Mazurek in the guest role. Here the trio expand on the workshop blues drone with Rob placing a sombre jazz card on the table. What begins as a loose sound study evolves into an introverted and melancholic exploration of mood, atmosphere, interwoven notes, texture, sound, guitar and electronics.

Tomorrow Outside Tomorrow unveils a nebulous new music.
