[video of the week] Dakota Suite & Quentin Sirjacq – Safe Within Your Arms

Taken from “The Indestructibility Of The Already Felled”, out January 31st 2020 via Schole Records.

A singer/guitarist Chris Hooson’s project Dakota Suite and a pianist/composer Quentin Sirjacq will be releasing their new collaboration album on January 31st.

This album was recorded during their second ‘dakota suite & quentin sirjacq’ Japan tour in 2017.

A well-balanced musical harmony of Quentin Sirjacq’s simple but elegant piano sounds with Chris Hooson’s voice as if it lights slightly in the silence, and the sound of vibraphone and synthesizer creates the comfortable atmosphere.

Not only Quentin’s prepared piano, but also Matsumushi, Mokusho, Tam-Tam, Crotale, these characteristic percussions were used to put some accent to the music.

From the songs with a Japanese title, kogarashi (木枯らし), kintsugi (金継ぎ), aiseki (哀惜), kyōshū (郷愁), it shows their better understanding towards Japanese culture. Their music seeks for the tranquility beauty with their imaginative approach, which gives us the peaceful time as we are enjoying the sight of Japanese Garden surrounded in silence.
