Mani Mani 35:55


[KHS 020]

Borrowing its title from a verse contained in the Man'yōshū poems, Mani Mani is the recording of the performance held by Pierre Berthet and Rie Nakajima under their collaborative project Dead Plants and Living Objects at Seanaps Festival 2020 in Leipzig.
Water dripping in resonant buckets, reverberating rocks, small bowls, self-crafted engines and mobiles: the acoustic gestures of Berthet and Nakajima set into motion an heterogeneous ensemble of sounding objects, interrogating the space and building a balance of vibrating tension for an all-absorbing 36 minutes of resonating dialogues.

Mastered by Giuseppe Ielasi.
