For over twenty years, Ikue Mori and Tenko have been on the forefront of new music, both in the U.S. and in Japan. These mavericks are veterans of countless classic bands from DNA to Dragon Blue, and have collaborated with just about every musician in the new music underground; Kim Gordon, Arto Lindsay, Bill Laswell, Derek Bailey, the Boredoms, Haino Keiji and Fred Frith to name just a few.

Their newest collaboration is a tribute to the world’s greatest writers of suspense stories. Mystery brings these two masters of musical suspense together with many special guests to create a new collection of sound compositions for voice and modern ensembles.

Also included as bonus tracks: their first duo recording from 1990, Death Praxis, unavailable for years.
