Diana Yukawa 2009 Sony Music Japan album The Butterfly Effect is now available on iTunes.
Diana spent the years that preceded her second album developing her own original sound, somewhat removed from her two previous classical albums. Signed to Sony Music, the violinist recorded the material for her much anticipated third album at Abbey Road Studios.
Teaming up with renowned producer, Andy Wright who has worked with the likes of, Simply Red, Massive Attack and Jeff Beck, Diana co-wrote the pieces and released the album on 21st October 2009 in Japan.
Whilst this sound is a somewhat different from Diana’s current sound, The Butterfly Effect was surely a great stepping stone, establishing the violinist as a recognised songwriter in her own right – something that Diana is immensely proud of.
The title; The Butterfly Effect was carefully chosen by the violinist as it is often used to sum up the more technical belief of sensitive dependence on initial conditions in chaos theory. The phrase refers to the idea that a butterfly’s wings might create tiny changes in the atmosphere that may ultimately alter the path of a tornado or delay, accelerate or even prevent the occurrence of a tornado in a certain location. The flapping wing represents a small change in the initial condition of the system, which causes a chain of events leading to large-scale alterations of events.
Diana’s album, The Butterfly Effect, was over a year in development in a London studio and the final recording took place in Studio 1 at the world famous Abbey Road Studios in July 2009, accrediting her alongside Michael Jackson and The Beatles to name a few.
The Butterfly Effect contains 13 original tracks co-written by the violinist with 1 cover all aimed at the modern-day music listener.
From 15th October 2012 you can buy The Butterfly Effect on iTunes.
Diana will also feature on BBC Radio 2 for an interview on "Nitin Sawhney Spins the Globe" following a recent colaboration between the two artists.
