Joxfield ProejX & Ryoko Ono review by New Underground Music

4,5 of 5 from the Dutch blog New Underground Music we find this flattering review of Joxfield ProjeX & Ryoko Ono - Red to Red
(Adjusted translation by me - sorry to the auther if I'm wrong here and there)
Joxfield Project consists of the Swedish electro duo Yan Janne Andersson - keyboards, synthesizer, bass, percussion and electronic effects and Stefan Ek Oax - solo guitar and electronic effects, which also makes avant-garde music.
Ryoko Ono comes from Sapporo, Japan, and plays saxophone and flute, but is also a composer and arranger, and she performed among others with: Acid Mothers Temple, Richard Pinhas and Tatsuya Yoshida (Sax Ruins).
On "Red To Red" they have joined forces and the result consists of two long tracks, which were released by Bam Balam Records on LP and published in January 2016.
On side A is the nearly 22-minute title track "Red To Red" here and there I hear a beautiful avant-garde electro track, which hypnotic kraut rock tones predominate, while there is still plenty of room for improvisation and free jazz play by the saxophone.
Side B contains the almost 19-minute "Unexplored Territories" in which I an experimental piece of music to put war that turns into a wonderfully peaceful played avant-garde song, to further the number change again and I have a piece of improvised free jazz to should get that mixed with the avant-garde creates a fantastic result. (listen to some of this number via the soundcloud link below the review)
The album "Red To Red" by Joxfield Projex & Ryoko Ono has two great pieces of music, which, although not everyone everyone will fall in the taste, but I'm sure will love the genre of these fans and I can give them this disc also highly recommend.
