about

Set in “Yotsude”, an area where hut fishing is popular, this piece expresses the image of a scene with guitar phrases while looping sound sources recorded in the coastal area. Each song begins with a small number of notes, but in the latter half of the song, these notes transform into a drone.

Since the subject matter of this piece is local scenery, I was very particular about the equipment I used. I used voice memos on my iPhone for field recording, and Garageband for song editing. Only two types of delay loopers were used when recording the guitar. Despite being in a cheap and simple environment, I took great care to express my work.

01
For this piece, I used a sound source that I recorded on the coast, where there was no wind and the waves were quiet. The sound of crashing stones and weak waves are looped and gradually transformed into a drone sound. Cloudy skies and a bit of cold air are expressed by a guitar phrase with a small number of notes.

02
To record this song, I used the sound of a slightly strengthening wave breeze or a car driving on a nearby road, and looped them together. I used minimal guitar phrases to express the way the sun began to set a little and the sky darkened.

03
The water level is rising and the waves are getting stronger. I looped the sound of rough waves and the sound of empty cans floating in the river hitting the shacks. I used a minimum of guitar phrases to express the changing scene while feeling a slight headache as the air pressure drops.

04
The sun was setting and it was completely dark. I recorded the sound of water flowing into the rocks and looped it. I imagined the lights of a cruise ship floating brightly across a dark river, and expressed it with a short guitar phrase.

05
The wind had died down and the waves had become completely quiet. The moon was lighting up the water beautifully. I looped the sound of things hitting the shack on the water, the cries of creatures too dark to see, the sound of the quiet waves, and the sound of a car signaling a left turn toward home. I used minimal guitar phrases, imagining the moonlight shimmering on the rippling waves.
