Album Notes
The creation of bonsai is a true collaboration of human's craftsmanship and the vital force of nature. When we visited the most famous bonsai competition in Tokyo, we were fascinated by the controlled shape of the plants and inspired to find a way how we could possibly express the might of life in the field of sound/music.

Traditionally, there is a difference between sound and music. For example, when you hear a bird singing, it's a sound; yet when you play the piano, it's music. When you hear sounds, they mean nothing; yet when you play music, they deliver messages. The world is full of sounds, more so than music is. But, what if we could peacefully "bonsai" them together? The world will be all music! So, we developed "Spectral Lab", by which a musician can turn any type of sound into a musical component: melody, harmony, rhythm, etc. It offers a totally new paradigm to music creation.

Our EP "Anatomy" takes full advantage of this tool and well illustrates how an ordinary sound material could turn into a rich variety of musical elements. Each piece in this EP derives respectively from a single sound. "Koe", from the buzzing sound of robust cicadas; "Myaku", from the evening cicadas; "Era", from Japanese tree frog; "Zui", from coal tit; and "h.a.k.u.", from bell crickets. While listening to the music, listeners might be able to vaguely identify the source sound. This music enlightens the listeners on the shape of the natural sound. It evokes the grotesque, mysterious, yet fascinating beauty of the living things.
