about Sound Report

As already informed at homepage,
we will collaborate with Horen to hold Akio Suzuki's concert on 4th July at nu things.

On 26th July Satoru Higashiseto, the organizer of Horen, held a lecture event.
We had a pre-meeting with Akio before Satoru's lecture beforehand.


Soon after arriving at the place, Akio began to crap his hands to check echo points carefully.


He seems to come up with some ideas about the layout.
Does he start to compose music or has his composition already completed...?


After the meeting Satoru showed us around America mura.
We ate Kogaryu Takoyaki at the request of Akio.


We will put archives of all the records about 1000 km bicycle tour "Sanetori" within days. Please check out both the archives and the concert!
