" 'Life'... Sei; Shou; Inochi (Life) : life; living. Nama ( Raw; crude) : being in a natural condition; not processed or refined. Ubu (Innocent) : innocent, the state in which it was born greenly. Ki (Pure) : underlying; unmodified by an admixture; simple or homogeneous. *The description explains the meaning of the Kanji character which means 'Life'.
We are not able to establish the definition of "life" yet, we continue to face 'life' with each passing moment in our life.
'Life' is a reality that does not reach the encoding. Is the original ecological form of life." (JINMO)
JINMO's 126th solo album, the title is "Life 120825".
Following his live album ...no, it should be called his "Life" album...
The newest album of the great popularity "Life" series, it is the live recording of his unaccompanied guitar solo show.
Yes, it is his "Life 120825".
This is a live recording of his live show held on Saturday, 25 August 2012.
In the night "Life 120825", as if he was obsessed-up, suddenly he referred to Chikuzan Takahashi for tens of minutes, just before the performance.
Then he started to play 1 hour long tune of "Gou Gou Chikuzan".
Audience were shuddering for long time though the show's over with deeply impressed by JINMO's desperate performance like Itako prayer such as invoking departed souls, and certain signs of departed souls which were filled the venue.
The emergence of "No border between the living and the dead", as JINMO says, was exactly out there.
The recording has done completely with stereo microphone, without any line signals at all.
The track has only fixed the sound quality on the editing but it is exactly raw sound on the show.
No overdubbing on editing, no effect such as samplers on playing.
Every sound had emitted only by a guitar with JINMO's 10 fingers.
Following description is JINMO's words in the invitation to the show "Life 120825".
"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.
Every cover design and cover picture for the "Life" series has done by photographer Toru Tanno.
There's nothing better than this to represent the "birthplace of new things".
This album "Life 120728" would be the must listen album for all JINMO manias.
Please enjoy at blasting volume so rad!
It has just 9 days passed since the release of his previous album "ZENith Air".
