COMPARING SHIMAMOTO
Comparing Shimamoto
Volume 1
Comparing Shimamoto began in Jan. of 2001 when 20 Philadelphia area musicians came together at Shimamoto Sound for a week long session of experimentation and sonic debauchery. Manipulated and arranged by Mike Riley, Comparing Shimamoto represents the collective artistry and improvisations of a very eclectic, loose-knit community. Each track was conceived on the spot from the combined grooves and musical statements that each artist brought to the session.

"If it were Shimamoto, there would be no confusion. The two of us, with no words spoken, would be totally accepting of the other. No uncomfortable feelings, no unease. But Shimamoto was no longer around. She was in a new world of her own, and so was I. Comparing Shimamoto was useless." - Haruki Murakami
