Ayuo (whose name translates as Fish-Life) is one of the most enigmatic figures in Japan, as unique as Moondog, Sun Ra or Haino Keiji, with whom he occasionally collaborates. Ayuo's music is a delicate balance of world music traditions, new age, improvisation and classical composition.

Izutsu is Ayuo's masterpiece, a one-act opera based on an ancient Noh play, scored for Celtic harp, hurdy gurdy, sitar-guitar and traditional Japanese instruments. Timeless music with a charming, mystical quality–hypnotic, sensitive and alluring.
