Concert film by Pavel Borodin featuring the Peter Brotzmann Chicago Tentet benefit concert at the Music Unlimited festival in Wels.
Guests: Toshinori Kondo, Michiyo Yagi, Yoshihide Otomo and Akira Sakata. It was a special wish of the curator of the 2011 Music Unlimited Festival (Wels, Austria), Peter Brotzmann, to organize a charity concert in aid of the Fukushima nuclear disaster recovery effort. For that purpose, the Chicago Tentet, one of Brotzmann's main bands since 15 years, invited four leading Japanese musicians to play with them for one set of approximately 25 minutes each. And it turned out to be a highlight of the festival that certainly was not short of highlights.
Half of the proceeds raised from this benefit concert were donated to the Japanese organization "Save Takata", which is implementing restoration activities centred around the city of Rikuzentakata, where enormous losses were suffered following the Japan earthquake of March 11, 2011. The other half went to "Project Fukushima!", a multi-faceted long-term project launched, among others, by Yoshihide Otomo and determined to turn Fukushima, a name which now has a stigma attached to it worldwide, into a positive word. shot on November 6, 2011 at Stadttheater, Wels, Austria The entire profit of the sales of this DVD will be donated to Yoshihide Otomo's organisation "Project Fukushima!".
