*2024 stock. 170 (hand-numbered) copies limited edition* "The recording locations of this work are Nakanoshima Park, Tenjinbashi, Sakuranomiya Park in Osaka, Japan. There are rows of cherry trees, rivers, ponds, lotus flowers on swamps, boat dock, railroads, and small forests. I visit this place often. The expression is rich depending on the season. It was a very hot summer day in August 2020. I brought in a small recording set (digital recorder, tape recorder, etc.) and worked on the go. There are so many different creatures living there. Feel the sounds of birds, insects, fish, and trees. One does not hear them all, but many small insects kind of haunted the process." - Masayuki Imanishi
