“Inside the Meiji Shrine, the bustling, non-stop chaos of metropolitan Tokyo is a distant echo. The slick koi weave and dash through the water in a seemingly choreographed ballet. Long beaked birds duck in and out of the water, taking care not to interrupt the fish. The air is crisp and brushes past the leaves of trees overhanging the lake. Nearby the trains announce their arrival and the chitter-chatter of the city calls on.”
Jessica is featured on September's Making Waves playlist! Her piece, 'He hears nothing' for prepared drum kit and electro-acoustic track, appears on the playlist. This recording of the piece is performed by Maddison Carter.
