Loving these Nippon shares… thanks for all your efforts.

The first piece sounds a little like a mellowed-down Japanese version of György Ligeti, then we have some swingin' something, and then an Orff-ish piece, or is it more Schoenberg-esque? But, it also has some quality that reminds me of Yma Sumac. Kind of a wild mix.

Thanks, Nick!
