KOKORO is the third Maurizio “ErMan” Mansueti album as Timeless Sonic Factory, a project dedicated to contemporary Theremin music.

The entire album is a tribute to RYUICHI SAKAMOTO and his wonderful music.

Why KOKORO? In Japanese, KOKORO (こころ) means “heart” in its deepest significance. It Is the spirit and essence of the individual. KOKORO was also a well known novel written by Natsume Sōseki (often considered the greatest writer in modern Japanese history). As in that novel, KOKORO means "the heart of things" or "feeling". In the same way, we can consider Ryuichi Sakamoto’s music.

As ErMan says, “the Theremin represents the voice of the soul". KOKORO wants to be a dedication played with a mental intimacy, an amplification of the extraordinarily suggestive Sakamoto’s compositions.

Don't miss it!
