Oversized packaging with embossed finishing.
An album thought lost in 2003, today restored in its original form at Cyberghetto Studio.
A Shinto sonic ritual about the purity / sacredness of paper (in Japan the pronounce of ‘paper’ and ‘gods’ – “kami” – is similar since ancient times) translated in a long cathartic path of one hour divided in four moments of purification, spaced out from a crescendo of meditative steps.
Like in the previous “Løvstakken” (Dark Vinyl, 2001) the analog electronic parts have been extemporised, giving them an exotic touch which harmonizes with the esoteric source of the concept.
Lyrics / vocal experimentations from Sydney Wheeler Jephcott’s “White Paper”.
