Memories behave strangely in a brain, in which the words and time axis are skipped after being misunderstood and idealized, and the folk music is fermented into good salted plums (?) Or you could call it a newborn folklore. The monotonous, quiet motifs are stretched out with real-time effects, or fast-forwarded or played backward to change its forms, to become a mesmerizing work of composition of fragments of the colorful tones created by a turntable and electronics. Ippei Kato's guitar contains a sharp sense of speed as well as a hint of an emotional touch, which changes its sounds along with the fragments of the other members' beat, voice, instrument, and non-instrument naturally, to bring you to some unknown and then suddenly back to vivid reality you live in. The three musicians' soundtrack, which stuck in a corner of our memory, can be called a 'teenage symphony'.
