According to the press release Saito Koji recorded this two part drone epic during a time of 'horrendous stress' in Fukushima which I'm assuming must allude to the nuclear power station accident/s there over the past month or so. Having read that, it's incredibly difficult not to let the notion completely influence your listening experience of the 40 minute piece. I personally find that drone releases often rely quite heavily on elements that are sometimes seen as relatively peripheral aspects of music, ie song titles and artwork, to provide some sort of context and colour for the minimal tones that are emanating from the speaker so when those aspects are as strong as those suggested here it naturally makes the whole thing very affecting indeed.. It's hard not to feel a very strong sense of melancholy from these undulating, accordian-like waves.
