Sangatsu are known for their soundtracks to Toshiki Okada's plays. With the collaboration of prominent colleagues such as Jim O'Rourke, the seven-person ensemble also produces delicate post-rock outside the theatrical context, influenced by the conception of time in Zen. Their soundscapes often change, without transitions, between loud, harsh passages and gentle, lyrical ones. The compositional textures are interrupted over and over again by breaks in which complete silence reigns.  Part of "Japan Syndrome - Art and Politics after Fukushima"
