JUN MIYAKE

''Jun Miyake is afraid of nothing! Avant-garde, jazz, Gregorian chant, trip hop, chanson, tango, pop hit, Arabic, Latin American and Asian musical vocabulary. Jun Miyake mixes all of this so creatively that it is overwhelming. Executed by tuba, cello, oud, mandolin, a Bulgarian choir and a multitude of electronic and acoustic percussion from which Miyake extracts the most curious of sounds, there is only one conclusion to come to: anyone who likes the melting of contrasts, who likes Tom Waits, David Sylvian or Chet Baker, should absolutely listen to Stolen from Strangers . Jun Miyake and his acolyte Arto Lindsay take a good portion of creative freedom. They unite what seems impossible to unite; they mix oil and water as if there had never been any problem doing so. Daring without ever running the danger of shaking or stumbling, the duo goes forth unhindered by the shackles of musical genre or stereotype''
