BEST CLASSICAL ALBUM finalist 2010

Ukiyo features Portuguese percussionist Pedro Carneiro performing some of John Psathas's most challenging and exciting work to date.

Ukiyo is the fourth Rattle release by one of New Zealand’s most accomplished and highly regarded composers, John Psathas.

This album may appear to be something of a departure for a composer renowned for his visceral orchestral work, but the mix of sampled and midi-based timbres bring vivid colour and resonance to these intricate and exacting pieces.
