MUSIC for ISOLATION “On Christmas Day It Happened So” New Album Release Live

Dec 4, 2021 at 5:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Join us for an atmospheric festive concert like no other, as MUSIC for ISOLATION present their new album “On Christmas Day It Happened So”, performing at the fireside of the beautiful 150 year-old folk house, Kirakudow.

Exploring the early roots of Christmas and New Year traditions, this music evokes something darker and more mysterious; from a time when ancient ritual and winter fireside ghost stories still held sway. Featuring Rie Takeuchi (baritone saxophone) & Gideon Juckes (tuba). With Victorian Christmas ghost story readings (in Japanese) by actress Makoto Fujita.

Saturday December 4, 17:30 open 18:00 start

Music For Isolation
Top 10 Album of 2020 (Far Side Radio, London) 
 

Nominated for Best Solo Album at the 2020 4barsrest Awards

★★★★ “a thoroughly absorbing experience…gently resolute in its dark tonality even as it releases you ever further from a tethered sense of time and place. The tracks echo with haunting thoughts of loss and faded memories…superbly realised”
(Iwan Fox, 4barsrest)
“漏れ聞こえる放課後のブラスバンドのような長閑さと、知らない街をあてもなく旅するかのような小さな冒険心や不安が同居する、心地よくも緊張感のあるアンサンブル。人と人の直接的なコミュニケーションが制限され、心が荒みがちなコロナ禍の人々にそっと寄り添うような一枚。アートワークも素晴らしいです。”
(Disk Union, Japan)
