Fuji~Rama

Steve Nieve

Fuji~Rama - Steve Nieve (Elvis Costello Grammy Winner and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame) with special guests Ned Rothenberg, Simon Fisher Turner, David Coulter and Ajuq.

Steve Nieve improvises using samplers, synthesisers, organs and prepared pianos. The key to his approach is "minimal". Steve invited four close friends to join the spirit of these ambiant landscapes. Ned Rothenberg, Simon Fisher Turner, David Coulter and Ajuq. Fuji~rama was inspired by a personal experience of an earthquake, which occurred while climbing the sacred mountain back in the previous century.
"The earthquake lasted less than a minute. It was an awesome expression of mother nature, and a once in a lifetime encounter. It was everything but frightening. When it was over I just wanted it to return again. Since then, the act of standing on the earth has never been at all the same". Steve composed a series of electronic soundscapes and posted them on his soundcloud page. He then invited his collaborators to choose a landscape and add their musical voices. This is the first release on Trouville Records.
