Anna Murray - Rndr II
Rndr II is Anna Murray's second album, and the follow-up to her Rndr of 2013.
Its four tracks are recorded improvisations based on samples of sounds ranging from field recordings to early gramophone recordings and instruments.
The album captures the sonic impression of life in Tokyo, where Irish composer Murray has recently moved as a MEXT Research Scholar. The album explores the tensions between city noise and quiet spaces, and between reserve and obsession, and observes how the most modern city in the world attempts to presever its old traditions.
