“I Confess”, a collaborative work by Jesse Perlstein (Sontag Shogun; US) & Shinya Sugimoto (JP) sees both artists, after performing live together on many occasions, combining their musical forces for the first time on an official recording. Perlstein, responsible for tape manipulation and field recordings and piano virtuoso Sugimoto, have created a sonic adventure, initially leading us through a wide range of disparate urban environments with their seemingly endless cacophony. Halfway through we escape the concrete jungle, searching for a way to put our mind at ease. While being surrounded by the soothing sound of nature itself that lets us dwell in a well-deserved moment of contemplation, Perlstein’s haunting voice and Sugimoto’s subtle piano play enter the scene, just to make way for the listener to get caught up in a final maelstrom of swirling tapestries of sound.
