Japanese pianist Koki Nakano today releases ‘Berceuse’, the latest single to be lifted from his forthcoming new album ‘Pre-Choreographed’, due out through Nø Førmat! (also home to Oumou Sangaré and Mélissa Laveaux amongst others) on April 24, 2020. The album is the follow-up to Nakano’s much-admired 2016 debut ‘Lift’, also released on Nø Førmat! and created in collaboration with cellist Vincent Segal.
The title of Nakano’s 2016 debut album, ‘Lift’, evoked a move well-known to ballet dancers: the porté, meaning ‘carried’. Requiring strength and delicacy, risk-taking and mastery of balance, the title also conveyed the deep relationship that Koki’s music maintains with dance, a bond he’s been cultivating ever since. ‘Pre-Choreographed’ is the continuation of that opening chapter, with the album release accompanied by a stunning series of choreographed music videos across which director Benjamin Seroussi (Opening Ceremony, Benjamin Clementine) collaborates with dancers/choreographers including Amala Dianor and Damien Jalet.
