Recommended Posts

Item: Seigen Ono Ensemble - Forest and Beach 

Hybrid Multichannel SACD

Price: $15 plus shipping if required
Item Condition: 9/10 
Reason for selling: I haven`t got a second set-up now
Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
Extra Info:
This is a two disc hybrid SACD set with a very unusual structure. The surround layer of each disc is basically an "environmental" disc one with birds in a forest and the other of beach goers at the beach. Both surround layers are DSD recordings (Genex GX-8500).

The stereo SACD and redbook layers feature Seigen Ono and musicians in studio (Forest) and live (Beach) recordings. The musicians include Marc Ribot, John Zorn, Arto Lindsay, Alexander Balanescu, Jun Miyake, etc.

If you appreciate brazilian tinged, world meets jazz music and environmental sounds

Listening to "Bar del Mattatoi" is a unique experience, and Seigen Ono immediately places us in a landscape both human and geographic that overflows with sensuality, sweetness and melancholy. This blend of intense pleasure in life and vague sadness at recognizing our inability to organize it - something Brazilians are perhaps known for - is captured here with extraordinary poetic aptness. A sentimental melody, like those in Fellini’s movies, seems more remembered than heard as it emerges from the sea, through a crowd that scatters across the beach and moves over the asphalt, up onto the sidewalk and rises towards the blue sky, where the sun seems to shine exclusively for the city of Rio de Janeiro. But it is not the visual impression evoked by the sound of voices, the waves and the notes that is the point here. The phrases and noises are not heard as if they were the soundtrack for a film whose images are invisible. What dazzles us is the understanding of the power of sound.
