Born in 1978, French viola player Cyprien Busolini is active mainly in the contemporary classical and improvised music fields. He is a member of the contemporary music groups Ensemble Daedalus and ONCEIM, and also performs in the early music group Ensemble Fratres. Seijiro Murayama, who lives in Paris and works mainly in Europe, is a Japanese drummer/percussionist as well as frequent voice performer. He has released numerous CDs (both solos and performances with other musicians) on the Ftarri labels.

It all began when Ensemble Dedalus, of which Busolini is a member, and Murayama (using voice and drums) played together in a live musical performance of the dance production "Blow the Bloody Doors Off," choreographed by Catherine Diverrès (composer: Jean-Luc Guionnet). After that (starting around 2019) the two have regularly carried out duo rehearsals.

This CD contains a single improvised music piece which could be considered the result of those rehearsals. Busolini plays viola, while Murayama forgoes the use of drums and percussion and focuses entirely on voice. As he says, "Unlike so-called 'improvisers who use their voice,' I take an approach along the lines of 'Not even I really know what's going to come out.'" The 46-minute performance was recorded in Paris on February 11, 2021.

Cyprien Busolini は1978年生まれのフランス人ヴィオラ奏者。現代音楽と即興音楽の領域で主に活動し、Ensemble Dedalus や ONCEIM といった現代音楽アンサンブルのメンバー。一方で、古楽の Ensemble Fratres でも演奏している。村山政二朗はパリ在住、欧州を中心に活動する日本人ドラマー / パーカッショニストで、ヴォイス・パフォーマンスもよくおこなう。Ftarri からはソロやほかの演奏家との共演で多くのCDをリリースしている。

事の発端は、Catherine Diverres 振り付けによるダンス作品『Blow the Bloody Doors Off』の音楽 (作曲:Jean-Luc Guionnet) のライヴ演奏で、Cyprien Busolini がメンバーの Ensemble Dedalus と村山政二朗 (ヴォイス、ドラムス) が共演したことだった。その後2019年ごろから、ふたりは定期的にデュオでリハーサルをおこなってきた。

本CDには、そのリハーサルの成果とも言うべき即興演奏1曲を収録。Busolini はヴィオラ、村山はドラムスやパーカッションは使わず、ヴォイスに専念。村山曰く、「いわゆる声を使った即興演奏家とは異なる『何が出るのか自分でもよくわからない』的なアプローチを心がけている」。1曲46分という長丁場の演奏で、2021年2月11日にパリで録音された。
