Fiona's Comments

The magnetic call of the killer whale, a frequency so close to beautiful you'll do well to avoid. It took a lot of vibrating atoms to share this. Presumably, that's why the last track of the album is called Stillness.

About the Album

"Liberation" is a track from "Aspiration" featuring pianist and composer Satoko Fujii, trumpeters Wadada Leo Smith and Natsuki Tamura, and laptop player Ikue Mori. Although this is the first time they have worked together as a group, there are ties among them that contribute to the music's beauty and coherence. "Aspiration" is about more than music- it is about sharing and working together, about finding something beautiful and making it more so, and about the spiritual bonds that unite us all.
