About the piece:
Setagaya is a quiet residential town. However, the recorded zone
is a "semi-industrial district", and there has a unique environment
that some small factories exists in a residential area. I grew up there.
Weak noise is generated from each factory. Machines sound
periodically, and workers respond with irregular sounds. These
sounds remain as my childhood memories and currently I feel them
not as noise but as daily life sounds.
This time, I repeatedly recorded sounds that we can hear there,
and by processing and mixing, I tried to reproduce my memories.
