Comments

Michiru's music made a big impression on me from the first moment I heard it - it's rich, passionate, and incredibly inspiring. She creates unique and truly moving musical world and I'm honored that she found in it also a little place for me. Working with Michiru was a pleasure and a great learning experience and "World's End Village" is an amazing record.

Julia Marcell(Singer-songwriter)

Very assured and original first album from 28 year old female composer and pianist. Stradling the line between pop, classical and avant-garde, the album features four female vocalists, Julia Marcell from Poland, plus Japanese Ayu Okakita, Saho Terao and Mariko Otsuka. Sometimes dark and broody, sometimes light and melancholic, constantly absorbing.
