sources – Ittouryoudan
One of two related albums from neoclassical instrumental band sources. This album's title comes from a Japanese proverb that dates back to the samurai; ‘Ittou Ryodan ni suru’, to cut something in two with one swift blow of a blade. The saying has become an idiom that represents decisiveness, knowing when to strike and cut things off that hold you back. It's related album, Tsumugu, means to bring things together.
