Goh Lee Kwang: The Lost Testament Of Rashomon


Out of stock



Not knowing much else about this work, it appears to be a soundtrack created for a Butoh theater performance that took place as part of Nyoba Kan Buto Fest 2010  in Malaysia. The work itself feels like it may have been recorded live using simple analog electronic equipment to create a range of atmospheric, oblique and dramatic moods. Certain moments remind me of Toru Takemitsu’s electronic soundtrack work during the early 1960s for films like The Face Of Another; other times I’m reminded of the loop-based work of Aube. Perhaps Goh should compose for theater (or film) more often because I think this is among his best work. (DL – and/OAR)
