Yuma Takeshita, who plays a modified bass guitar that he calls an electro-bass, and drummer/percussionist Yuji Ishihara have established reputations for musical excellence. Takeshita and Ishihara perform improvised music together in their duo project, Tumo. In 2017 Tumo gave a series of four concerts at Ftarri in which they performed composed works. On the occasion of a visit to Japan by Chilean guitarist Cristián Alvear, the duo performed "DosCuatro" [2017], a text score work they had commissioned from Alvear, at the final concert of the series on November 5, 2017. The concert consisted of two performances of "DosCuatro": first it was played by Tumo only, and then as a trio by Tumo and Alvear. This CD documents both performances, each about 21 minutes long. Both are superb, and it's due to the wonder of Alvear's score and playing that the same piece can change so greatly with different performances.

エレクトロベースと称する改造ベース・ギターを演奏する竹下勇馬と、ドラマー / パーカッショニストの石原雄治は、Tumo (ツーモ) という名の下で即興演奏をおこなうデュオ・プロジェクトを続けている。Ftarri では、演奏力では定評のある竹下と石原の Tumo に、作曲作品を演奏してもらうコンサート・シリーズを2017年に4回実施。2017年11月5日におこなった最後のコンサートでは、チリのギタリスト、クリスチャン・アルヴェアール (Cristián Alvear) が来日した機会を捉え、アルヴェアールに委嘱したテキスト・スコアの作品 "DosCuatro" [2017] を演奏。コンサートでは、まず Tumo だけで "DosCuatro" を演奏し、その後、アルヴェアールを加えた3人で同曲を演奏した。本CDには、それぞれ約21分の両方の演奏を収録。どちらの演奏もすばらしいが、同じ曲ながら表情を大きく変えるあたりは、アルヴェアールのスコアと演奏の妙。
