Synopsis:                              Cosmic Womb played by Margaret Leng Tan and Satoh moved mostly
                                       by simple chord progressions and along arcs of growing and
                                       receding sound clusters.

Synopsis:                              The music Satoh presented here however, was far removed from such
                                       spectacles, though no less interesting.
