BATTLE TRANCE exists in the cracks between contemporary classical music, avant-garde jazz, black metal, ambient, and world music, and their 2014 album Palace of Wind (on NNA Tapes) is a composition that pushes the four saxophonists to the limit, shedding new light on the saxophone as an ensemble instrument. The players use circular breathing to build continuous, hypnotic waves of sound; multiphonics layer to create intricate textures that reflect an ancient time; and blisteringly fast lines seem to liquefy into each other.
Listen to Palace of Wind in its entirety here:
SHUTARO NOGUCHI is from Japan and in 2010 he moved to Louisville, Kentucky after finishing his college degree and internship at FAME studio in Muscle Shoals, Alabama. He quickly found musical outlets as a collaborator with K Tranza and Another 7 Astronauts. From 2013 he started recording his own songs and is currently working on a solo album, while hosting the radio program Midnight Locker with Nathan Simmons at ART.FM. His style of music varies but generally is melody-oriented, minimal acoustic guitar singer-songwriting sung in Japanese with a flavor of traditional-folk, backed by ensembles of synth and electric guitar. He is influenced by music from America and around the world, and Pajo.
