Few words from Katsura Yamuchi ahead of the concert of the 15th september:

"It's the first time for me to play in England. Some of my Japanese friends told me "Oto is very nice place and fits for Salmosax." Now, it is realized by many helps, I appreciate it. Salmosax is a kind of musical exploration, it connect ancient time to today using my memories of body (DNA), air, place, audiences, sounds, etc. As a result Salmosax express future too. I mean I don't know my music. Is it like Zen? I don't know."
