about

The 27-minute piece 'Needle Six' is a BBC recording of an improvised session between Erased Tapes' vibraphone supremo Masayoshi Fujita and our very own electronic wizard Guy Andrews, that took place at the prestigious Maida Vale Studios on October 26, 2015.

Recorded for BBC Radio 3’s Late Junction, the performance continues the show's tradition of introducing two musicians on stage for the first time and documenting the unpredictable and compelling sounds which unfold. Both Masayoshi and Guy were encouraged to abandon their usual respective preparations and adopt a totally new approach.

"I am not an improv guy. I do improvise with certain other musicians but we usually have some rough plan. This time was different, so I just tried not to think too much and see how it goes. I think it made sense that I only played acoustic and Guy played electronic stuff. It made our approach more simple and clear. I think both sounds complimented each other very well." - Masayoshi Fujita
