about

The Arakawa River is one of the principal rivers flowing through Tokyo, the capital city of Japan. It originates on Mount Kobushi in Saitama Prefecture, and finally exits into Tokyo Bay.

Inspired by Move D's mid/late ambient works, Susumu Yokota's early Leaf label ambient releases like Sakura, William Burroughs, Laurie Anderson and Ryuichi Sakamoto's Solitude suite. This Tokyo Isolation Chamber release is an attempt to give an impression of the deep nocturnal sounds of the industrial heartland within the Tokyo metropolitan region.

"It is a subjective subconscious journey from Tokyo Station where salarymen hurry to catch the last trains home; across the Sumeida River into the southern Koto industrial warehouses leading further to industrial bridges that crossover the wide mouth of the Arakawa river. Then, as daybreak begins, the rhythms of life circulate anew as I walk less alone across the banks of the Arakawa River." Joseph Auer.
