Sho Ren In
Live performance: 16 Dec 2005 --
Presented by: YasushiYoshida
Temple Chi On In
Kyoto -- Japan

On December 16th, Yasuski performed with Kyma, Continuum, Mbiraski and traditional Japanese dancer Uho at the Sho Ren In temple on the north side of Temple Chi On In in Kyoto. Yasuski has built a portable version of his Mbiraski instrument that fits inside a U.S. Army first aid kit box, and even includes an extra input for an electric guitar or a second Mbiraski. A short video showing a one-handed performance on the instrument (he must have been using his other hand to hold the camera) is available here. It sounds very "acoustic" in the video and other recordings. You can hear Yasuski's latest Mbriaski + Continuum + Kyma recording here. Yasuski designed the sound by shaping noise with 2 sets of two formant filters to achieve a "glass harp" sound color.
