Makoto Oshiro makes his own musical instruments and equipment by combining materials like electronic devices and household products, and uses them in the development of creative live performances. He also creates installations focusing on physical phenomena related to sound. His unique activities--both live performances and installations--have attracted much attention in recent years. This 2-CD set is a compilation of the sounds produced up to the present by the various instruments and equipment that Oshiro has created so far. This splendid album overflows with creativity. The set includes track notes penned by Oshiro himself in both Japanese and English.
