visible to the listener”. They have performed in several cities in US, Japan

and Europe. NYFA 2010 winner.

Aside from performing live concerts, they also score music for dance,

theater and films. In every case, adopting the musical textures to fit the

mood of the project. A few of the recent work include, a full feature film

“Starfish Hotel” directed by John Williams, and a documentary film “ANPO”

“They give their all, whether the music is passing through a becalmed,

inward phase, or whether it’s arcing up to a pinnacle of beautiful excess.”
