Tomoko sauvage Ombrophilia, previously released by and/OAR cd 2009. The result is soothing, seductive and sensual, like a ong hot bath. I could soak in it forever' (The Wire). Difficult not to remain charmed, if not entirely mesmerized, by Tomoko Sauvage's music for water, porcelain bowls and hydrophones, delicately represented by the 40 minutes of Ombrophilia. This is a model case in which, rather than looking at the technical aspect of things, one should simply let the sound influence the spirit.

Mylapore (extract) from Tomoko Sauvage's album "Ombrophilia". Making Of A Rainbow (extract) from Tomoko Sauvage's album "Ombrophilia". Hear two extracts of music by Tomoko Sauvage, whose forthcoming album Ombrophilia is a current favourite of Momus and featured in his recent Epiphany piece in the magazine. Sauvage, a Paris-based Japanese musician, uses water-filled porcelain bowls for her electro-acoustic performances and compositions. The use of hydrophones (underwater microphones) allows her to capture the subtle sound of water waves and drops.
Dipping, pouring and striking, she lulled listeners into an envelope of soft focus, as if casting a spell.
