Guitarist and improviser Riuchi Daijo holds the bi-monthly live performance series "Shield Reflection" at Ftarri, Tokyo. In this series, Daijo usually performs with the same guest musicians three times in a row. In the three concerts from October 2015 to February 2016, his guests were Keitetsu Murai (electro-acoustics) and Tetsuro Fujimaki (drums). This CD consists of two pieces performed on December 20, 2015, and February 21, 2016. Daijo plays electric guitar in the first piece, and acoustic guitar in the second. He selects sounds with care and never over-plays. Murai produces noise in a spacey fashion. Fujimaki puts out percussion sounds with a feeling of restraint. The three musicians' chemistry is superb. Throughout, their improvisational performances are filled with originality and freshness.
