Mari Tamaki & R-Aal String Quartet
Collection of strings quartet musical pieces composed by Mari Tamaki. They were played at BUTOHs and theatrical plays, in which Mari Tamaki played a cello by herself.
“Mari Tamaki creates the new world of music with elaborative classical sound and innovative contemporary sound evoking progressive rock.” Mr. Jun Fukamachi, a Japanese composer and a keyboard player.
”Mari Tamaki’s ‘Sneak into the Q-City’ is also based on a painting, of the same name by Iori Mamiya. Tamaki mirrors the artist’s concept of a ‘mind trip’ with a journey from initial dissonance to a closing, almost saccharine, harmony. Fine performances, fine sound all round.” Author: Guy Rickards Gramophone
