01. some people call feat. kyooo
02. moon Ⅱ (double time)
03. moon Ⅲ (perc and noise)
04. moon Ⅳ (piano trio)
05. moon (beat)

This EP consists of five songs. One is a beat number (track 5) and the other four are variations of it by twelve (jazz) musicians.

 

Each musician improvised on the original beat individually. And then, hikaru yamada, a conductor and a producer of this project, edited and reworked their performances into songs (track 1-4).

 

The musicians played without hearing the others’ performance. This process makes unique ensembles that lack center points.
