Tokyo free jazz/improvisation project. Featuring: Masahiro Deguchi, Hiroyuki Usai (ex. Fushitsusha), Hirokumi Uemo, Masaaki Motoyama. "Another piece of ineffable mystery from the deepest bowels of the Tokyo underground. Led by flautist and guitarist Masahiro Deguchi, Gendai Sokkyo (the name means 'Contemporary Improvisation') are a group with no discernable history, who seem to have sprung from nothing to fully-formed life. As the name suggests, the group showcase an improvisatory fusion of methodology and sound palette, drawing upon free jazz/free improvisation, avant rock moves and the textures of contemporary classical. An explosion of weird dynamics, suggestive in its inclusiveness and entirely psychedelic in its approach." --Alan Cummings
