From thee Artists:
"Sound artists Yumi Hara Cawkwell and Guy Harries work as a duo, creating ‘sonic rituals’. Using voices, found objects, electronic processing, field recordings, and nonlinear synthesizers, the duo’s performances unfold through a process of improvisation. The structure of the performances, which is never premeditated, is inspired by the concept of ritual, imbued with intent and a sense of inevitability, yet allowing for risk and unpredictability to lead the scenario in new directions."

Tracks 2, 4, 6 were recorded live during the Sonic Rituals Japan Tour December 2014

Tracks 1, 3, 5, 7, were recorded on location at the Composers’ Union Guest House, Druskininkai, Lithuania in May 2012

Special thanks to: Druskomanija Festival, Lithuanian Composers’ Union, Sigute Ilgauskaite, University of East London, JASMIM, Isshee, Minol Umemoto, Koota, Kazuo Kuro’o,Puyo and Chris Cutler.
