The late Susumu Yokota’s ‘Symbol’ is thought by many to be his masterpiece. An extraordinary piece of work, that fuses classical music with ambient, world and electronic music into a breathtaking genre-defying kaleidoscope of sound. Repeated listens draw the listener deeper into his world, and reveal the true scope of Yokota’s achievement.
Featuring the incredible voice of avant garde composer/vocalist Meredith Monk, ‘Symbol’ includes pieces by Debussy, Mahler, Ravel, Tchaikovsky and even Beethoven, interwoven with synth washes and electronic filigree, re-imagined in the fecund imagination of Yokota.
