Koto Dreaming
Koto Dreaming is a collection of innovative & uniquely Australian multicultural compositions for koto. Koto Dreaming breaks away from the traditional sounds and compositions for koto, and includes Satsuki's own collaborative compositions with Australian artists.

Kaleidoscope is the debut album from GEST8, an innovative improvising ensemble made up of eight of Sydney's leading musicians. Each of the players is a virtuoso on their instrument with a strong original sound, renowned for outstanding creative ideas and conceptual breadth and imagination. The GEST8 CD Kaleidoscope released by Tall Poppies Records, was launched at The Sound Lounge in October 2007
