Jinchūriki - Kyūbi (2016) NAKAMA RECORDS

Violinists Håkon Aase and Adrian Løseth Waade is releasing their first record as a duo on Nakama Records

The two handsome guys above are Adrian Løseth Waade and Håkon Aase. These two remarkable violin players have put their wits and musicality together, borrowed both band name and album title from the Japanese cult-manga "Naruto", and made a curious piece of art entitled Kyūbi. 

Jinchūriki says: "This album is a free exploration of sound within the bounds of two violins and the musicians playing them. Close interplay and together-ness permeates the 36 minutes of eclectic but hopefully cohesive music, ranging in expression from reductionist and sparse textures, to filmscore-like tonal landscapes with clear dramatic outlines. We feel that this record reflects both our dionysic and apollinian sides, and hope that the balance between the two can possibly create something universal which the listener can relate to."
