"Free improvisation has rarely seen significant new movements as influential as the small group of Tokyo musicians once labeled as 'onkyo'. Sachiko M, Toshimaru Nakamura and Otomo Yoshihide are three of the scene's driving forces (along with Taku Sugimoto), and on Good Morning Good Night are documented together as a trio for the first time. While these three musicians have worked together in countless configurations in recent years, Good Morning Good Night is their first meeting as a trio. Recorded in August of 2003, the double CD contains essentially the full recording sessions, four tracks totalling over 100 minutes. Good Morning Good Night is a very conscious step in a new direction, an attempt to create a 'vertical' music (as opposed to most music, which moves in a linear, horizontal plane). The pointillistic placement of sounds by these three masters of delicacy results in a music that exists somewhere between foreground and background listening. Friederike Paetzold's design is inspired by James Turrell's work, and features four different covers for the four tracks/times of day, which the listener can fold according to their preference."
