This song was created using sounds from the period of the global lockdown, March-May 2020.

I named it covid19-20 and

"Tokyo Chant"" is composed from soundscapes of Tokyo.

"A Wingless Country" is composed from soundscapes of Japan.

“The Soul Of Night” is composed from soundscapes of the world excluding Japan.

This "The Birds' Song" is from soundscapes of birds and insects in the world.

In total, the project consists of five different tracks, seven in all if you include Japanese and English. (The rest will be released this summer.)


“The Birds' Song” is composed by soundscapes which are the voices of birds, insects and natures from all over the world comprising 71 sounds from 66 areas.




Those sounds are positioned in the stereo field to give the impression of reality.

The point of origin is my atelier (Tokyo, Japan) and the center position is WHO:World Health Organization (Geneva, Switzerland).


起点は東京のアトリエ、中心となる基準地はWHO:世界保健機関 (スイス・ジュネーブ)です。

When this world stormed into the Covid age,

(While I felt the darkness and it would be long period.)

I felt anyway it would end someday.






So I decided to create songs with the soundscapes under the covid-19.

I asked friends and relatives to record the sounds around you where the lockdown was still going on.

Because I wanted to remember this tough curious days in our memories.

I am are sure that one day, in the blink of an eye,

we will forget what we thought and felt in these days.
