*80 copies limited edition. In process of stocking* ‘Car Klaxon was during a visit to Nepal in 2010, I came across what I thought was the busiest intersection. First of all, I knew the moment I arrived there that I had to record this. It was a huge intersection stretching from the capital city of Kathmandu to the provincial cities. The sound of the horns varied, and the timing of the horn presses seemed random, but the sound of the horns being pressed by an unconscious sense of necessity sounded like new music. Since 2017, a horn ban has been in effect in the capital city of Kathmandu.

A Cricket in Sunflower is a recording of the chirping of a cricket that had boarded a ship alone. It makes sense that it would continue to chirp in this situation with no companions around at all. Hopefully his friends will hear his chirp when the ship arrives. The equipment used was nothing special, just an ordinary handy recorder and a 4tr tape recorder (Fostex)' - Shun Nakaseko
