Rippleganger – Touri Michi
Maya Kuroki – voice
Rainer Wiens – kalimbas, prepared guitar
“For me, Rippleganger is an example of synchronous serendipity that came into existence without any effort on my part around three years ago. I first met Maya in a group improvisation context, where I was amazed at how naturally we were able to connect musically. Even with the non-tempered prepared guitar, and kalimbas tuned to scales of my making, measured in hertz, Maya was able to sing in a natural, and original voice, with a great deal of imagination. A few weeks later I asked Maya if she would like to work as a duo, and Rippleganger was born..” – Rainer Wiens
