*2024 stock. 180 (hand-numbered) copies limited edition* "Noise pollution? Maybe. To me, it’s a location that sounds like any other in its natural state: the city sounds like the city; the forest sounds like the forest. That said, this album is about being grateful for having paths that easily lead me away from the din, out of my own head, and into the forest around Kasuga and Omiwa shrines, down anonymous gravel paths, narrow backstreets, along verdant rice fields and small rivers. This is where the pilgrimage aspect comes in, as I see visiting all my numerous secret- and now that I’ve told you, not-so-secret happy places as a form of taking refuge. That said, I’m keeping a couple of sonically-rich locations to myself. I’m not going to give you directions to my Monday sunset spot in particular. Wherever you are in the world, dear listener, you’ll have to find your own." - Christopher Olson
