  DAI FUJIKURA
dai fujikuraDai's music is inspired by the 'beauty, form and movement of swarms of fish and birds', and by the vivid colours and textures of sounds. This is explored in Secret Forest, and Okeanos which combines oboe, viola and clarinet with Japanese instruments. Dai's works are frequently performed to an international audience and he has recently collaborated on a new album with experimental musician David Sylvian.
