An album of improvised duets between Kanoko Nishi on koto and Aram Shelton on soprano saxophone. The two instruments are quite different, representing wind & string families, with opposing Eastern and Western backgrounds. They share a common pitch range. Both are soloistic. The musicians explore a musical area far beyond the scope of either instruments' tradition. The resulting dialog is constantly evolving. The sound is the melody.

Nishi & Shelton met when attending Mills College. This album was recorded in one session on three microphones in Oakland California.

Recorded on June 13, 2009 in Oakland California.
Engineered, mixed & mastered by Aram Shelton.


Kanoko Nishi, Aram Shelton
