Edit 2014 roundup Leave a reply Bye 2014 – overall a pretty good year here. Most importantly we put out two new albums in contrasting styles: ネオン列車の風景 Neon Train Landscapes and in the non-idiomatic idiom in Norway. The first was a composed Japanese psychedelic rock album while the second showcased the free improvised music I’d been influenced by in my earlier years in Wellington. It was also a good year for travel to southeast Asia: I visited Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia for the first time… and I finally returned home to New Zealand after two years living in Western Australia and a year before that in Okinawa.
