Sound of the Mountain
with Tetuzi Akiyama
and Toshimaru Nakamura

There is a clear affinity amongst the members of this quartet for mixing acoustic and electric elements and extending the physical possibilities of their instruments. Montreal-based Sound of the Mountain (Elizabeth Millar, amplified clarinet & Craig Pedersen, amplified trumpet) met Japanese improvising musicians Tetuzi Akiyama (guitar) and Toshimaru Nakamura (no-input mixing board) in Tokyo in August 2017. Several concerts and a recording session at the legendary GOK studio in Kichijoji were the foundation for this collaborative effort in creating sound together, putting focus on the musical possibilities of form and interaction inherent in improvised music. In October 2019 they embark on a Canadian tour for the release of their recording amplified clarinet and trumpet, guitars, nimb.
