"Acoustic Steelpan Improvisation work series. Under the influence of traditional Indian improvised music, Machida has played distinctive improvisation so far. Based on the style, elements of Jazz, twelve-tone and ethnic & folk way are added into these albums. It's an expression of innate characteristic in improvised music: obscurity, limitation and temporality, by "no credit (label), transparent (no colors) limited edition vinyl" release. The tracks doesn't have names. It is a kind of sculpture that reminds of steelpan's clear sound. On side A of Steelpan Improvisation "i", minimal repeated melody (like harmonium) by sine wave functions as a drone that sets up a scale in the piece. On the melody, Machida improvised by steelpan ambiently, with no specific beat. (called alap part in Indian music). Side B of "i", steelpan sound drifts between Jazzy chords woods by Electric Piano."
