Sun Electric is the German duo of Tom Thiel and Max Loderbauer currently on hiatus, but resurrected every so often in each decade so far, starting from the early 90's. 30.7.94 Live was recorded at the Tripping on Sunshine Ambient festival in Ørstedsparken, Copenhagen, Denmark and pressed on CD in 1995 directly from the original DAT masters. That's the reason why you won't hear crowd noise or backcoupling at all - in fact, the audio quality is magnificent and you cannot distinguish this live album from any of their other studio albums sound-wise, despite the hint given in its title, of course. The purity and incredible warmth are still mind-blowing to this very day, making the album a timeless classic.

With Sun/Moon, Somei Satoh speaks with the ancient, distinct voice of Buddha, with enough melodramatic romanticism to stir the emotions of even the most Western ears. Perhaps less cinematic than his previous album, Toward the Night, but no less passionate in tone, with gorgeous, rich dialogue between shakuhachi and koto that circulates between whispers, cries, gasps, and deep contemplation. The opening piece, "Kougetsu," is the sound of a rock garden minding its own business, a dragonfly dreaming restlessly amongst the bamboo. "Sanyou" follows in much the same way, in an expression of (as the composer puts it) "the purity of the early morning air." Shin Miyashita plucks his 17-string koto with patience, reverence, and in perfect symbiosis with Akikazu Nakamura, a stoic virtuoso on the shakuhachi.
