This release brings together two pieces constructed from manipulated field recordings, made in various districts of Tokyo. Taking a sideways, almost psycho-geographic approach to navigating the city, these works explore both the internal, and external impact of the megatropolis, the ocean of voices, activity, distractions, and the overwhelming, disorientating, joyous experience of drenching oneself in that wash.

Download as a digital album, or purchase a physical CD.
Please allow up to one week for production time plus postage from Japan.

Tokyo resident James Greer is a field recordist and composer whose work often responds to people and the built environment.

London resident Neil Luck is a composer and performer interested in live performance, fallible bodies, the pathetic, theatre, the esoteric and the familiar. His music is concerned with sound, of course, but resonates with other live and fine arts practices.
