As one of Japan's most unique voices of the cello, improvising musician Morishige Yasumune continues to collaborate with a wide array of dancers and musicians both in Japan and around the world. His improvisational approach looks to extend the cello's sonic possibilities, expanding the vocabulary of the instrument into rich unexplored territories. In addition to his improvisational work, he also composes his own vocal works, accompanying his voice with either cello or piano.
