The album was made in an exchange between the essence of Japanese culture and the influences of Brazilian music, configured in a subjective way, and in the form of ambient sound. “Between” is the translation of the Japanese concept 間 (“Ma”), which also means an empty space. The interstice between two things, an interval where infinite connections can happen.
Based on this concept, the album was divided into two parts, connecting with other artistic languages. The first (tracks 1 to 4) expresses openness, breadth, with music inspired by the video art landscapes of the artist Anais-karenin. The second (tracks 5 to 7) communicates introspection, the inner side, with sounds based on poetry written by Tatsuro Murakami.
