Fukui (Harmony Hall)

Today we had the pleasure of playing in Fukui's Harmony Hall.  It's one of those space that makes a performer feel at ease, open, and secure.  The acoustics, the lighting, the audience, even the view outside the hall was beautiful.  Any mistake made on the stage simply seeped into its soft wood and melted in its light.  We took a train through flooded terraced rice fields reflecting the mountains and setting sun behind them.
