Albedo Fantastica is the duo of Keiko Higuchi and Sachiko. Both of them are well known names to those who are evolving in the Japanese underground waters since each has been involved in many projects and each has a consistent discography on labels such as Musik Atlach, Improvising Beings and Utech. Their respective backgrounds may differ, but they share a common interest in different genres, from jazz and rock to free improvisation, and have collaborated with a cast of various musicians in the likes of Cris X, Fukuoka Rinji, Kawaguchi Masami, Uchida Shizuo, Shin-Ichiro Kanda etc. Albedo Fantastica isn't an exception to the unexpected. This album is one of their most powerful performances and their first on CD. 35 minutes of free spirits calling voices, piano, electronics and more, using all sonic waves to take any good listener to unknown shores. For sure its not a comfortable and easy album as the entire experience is rather intense and does not bear a distracted attention. It requires engagement. Magicians, witches, shamans - just leave your landmarks behind you, as the whole performance will hook and embark you in an intense and unpredictable sonic trip. Dive into a new dimension, call it psychedelic if you need to label such a bloody and uncompromised music - a listen that is not about to fall into oblivion with these two free women beating space and senses.
