AMATERASU

by LERIN / HYSTAD

Amaterasu, the goddess of the sun in Japanese mythology hid inside the Ama-no-Iwato (heavenly rock cave) depriving the world of her life-giving light after her brother Susanoo had destroyed her rice fields and killed her attendants in a fit of rage. In order to get Amaterasu to come out of the cave the other gods threw a party outside luring her out with music and noise. Amaterasu is based on field-recordings from arcade halls and subway stations in Tokyo and Osaka in Japan recorded in 2013. The album combines these field-recordings with ambient soundscapes, experimental rock, jazz and electronic music.
