JINMO's 112nd album, "Life 120310".

Following the live album, it should be called "Life" album...
"Life 120211" of great popularity, it is the live recording album.

Yes, it is his "Life 120310".

This is a live recording of his live show held on Saturday 10 March 2012.
After the show, we made rushed release in just 30 hours! ! !

Instrument that he played is "Jinmoid".
Effector is Z.Vex's "Fuzz Factory" (fuzz), and Cranetortoise's "GC-1"(compressor)  only.
Amplifier is his recent favorite ZT Amp's "Lunchbox".
Needless to say but he didn't used multi-effecter, delay or reverb, not any special effects.
It is exactly fresh raw sound!

The show was in the intense roaring sound in maximum 120dB.
Incidentally, the sound pressure level in a noisy factory is 90dB, train passing on railway underpass is 100dB, machine riveting and car horn makes 110dB, and 120dB is the sound pressure around the jet engine on the plane.
This 120dB is certainly sound level to affect the human body.

The recording has done completely with stereo microphone, without any line signals at all.
We recorded the show with new excellent recorder for high sound pressure at the position different from last time ("Life 120211"), at very close range to explosive sound from amplifier.
Although shutter sounds of photographers in the venue had drowned out, we have succeeded to record juicy musical sound with accuracy in more than the previous show.

After the show at March 10, JINMO had started editing the recorded data immediately and he completed album making before the dawn.
JINMO cut out the sound in 17 minutes 14 seconds from the playing over an hour, as if he was a sculptor of Buddhist chisels a Buddha statue.
First one, "plectics pulse" style as JINMO says, "Life 120310-1" in 8 minutes 58 seconds.
Then, very thick symphonic orchestration of "Life 120310-2" in 8 minutes 16 seconds, just as if a great flood of natural harmonics.
Both tracks are only fix sound quality on the editing but they are exactly as raw sound on the show.
No overdubbing on editing, no effect such as samplers on playing.
Every sound emitted only by a guitar and JINMO's two arms (sometimes he used his tongue though!).

Although the audiences were veterans who have experienced JINMO's show many times, after the show, they had talked about their surprise and excitement more than last show with a lot of words such as "shooting", "barrage" or "bombing.

Following description is JINMO's words in the invitation to the show "Life 120310".

. . .

"Two major activities as a musician, "concert" and "composing".
Of these,  I've realized almost of my ideal for composing by download release from Avant-attaque.
It made possible to liberate the release timing in response to the intention of the artist, and fully liberalization of contents or sizes.

And the other one, concert, I have attempted various styles to be close to my ideal for a long time.
I wish my concerts would be the "birthplace of new things".
Strongly, I strongly wish so.
That's the place there are no pre-established harmony, no trial-and-error or expressions for the expectations of audiences.
There is Jubilus to meet unexpected "something new", and I wish to be illuminated by unexpected Jubilus that even the player itself unexpected.
At the same time, I wish the people who were there, were not mere spectators.
I wish they were witnesses of an event or a phenomenon, were spiritual cooperators who wish the coming of Jubilus with me, and I wish they were the one who illuminated by Jubilus to meet "something new".
I gave a name "Life" to the jubilant moment that born "something new".
Life is live, life is everyday.
The place suitable for the birth of new things, it would not be an existing commercial space for music industry.
At last we got the place ready for it.
And the people who being illuminated by Jubilus together, I decided to limit the invitation to the one who would be Jubilus.
The attendees for the occasion, are 12 people except me.
At last, I wish you would be the one of them, I strongly wish so.


. . .

This concert "Life", has produced by JINMO in order to be "birthplace of new things" by JINMO, and the intention has been splendidly realized.
This is it, its recording.

Similar to previous "Life" album, cover design and cover picture by photographer Toru Tanno.
There's nothing better than this to represent the "birthplace of new things".

This album "Life 120310" would be the must listen album for all JINMO manias.
By all means, please enjoy at blasting volume so rad!

Just 7 days passed since the release of previous album "Yuuwaku", JINMO's 112nd album "Life 120310" (93rd from Avant-attaque) is now available on Avant-attaque!
Needless to say but it comes with Apple Lossless (44.1kHz 16bit) high quality sound.

"Criminal Moment" in " Life 120310"

Although "the moment" to be recorded with my camera, was just from@1/125 to 1/30 second, "the moment" to be stored by thought to my@memory was more longer.
Based on my consideration that every moment is composed of fragmented@visions, I condensed the long moment by layering (or arranging) of@almost random selected several images to a dozen." (Toru Tanno)
