ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Double Fist is the result of dual collaborations. The first stems from a method of free composition whereby the conductor shapes raw improvisations with flowing body movements and a set of predetermined hand gestures.
The other is between light and sound.
Both, Yasmina Chavez’s abstract photography and Tanaka’s free-form music, are non-representational images guided by spontaneous feeling and intent.

This project is dedicated to the memory of Roy James and Walt Blanton who taught me the importance of music as storytelling.
produced by Julian Tanaka and Uli Geissendoerfer
recorded at the Ray Wright Room at the Eastman School of Music in April 2016
Special thanks to the strong women in my life - Yoonsl, Danbi, Stephani, and Helen; to my hero, Jiro Tanaka; and to Justin Peterson, A.J. Farley, Mike Forfia, Joel Boettger, and Barry Garvue.
