Improvising duo, Cora Venus Lunny and Izumi Kimura was first commissioned by Improvised Music Company in 2017, and immediately hit it off. The most recent exploration with the duo is Field Recording Project, a collaboration with artist Anthony Kelly.
The first album release is scheduled in summer 2020.
“The music unfolded as a journey of constant revelations, the two musicians embracing space and silence as tools to frame their dialogue.
…The short but brilliant final conversation sparked lyricism and fire -the transitions seamless, the empathy pronounced.
Kimura and Lunny’s riveting improvisations heightened the senses and stirred the blood, the emotional energy of their music fairly animating the crowd. Simply too good a collaboration to be a one-off.”
