like ancient ceremony "Burnt offerings".

In the venue, PA speakers are set on four corners, audiences will be required to lie down radially on red carpet with their head toward the center of a circle.
There are very intense strobe lights (high brightness 288 pieces of LED!) just a few feet above the audiences.
For about 90 minutes of performance, audiences will be exposed to high-speed flickering stimulus unable to shut intense lights though they close their eyes.

"If you stare details at micro, you will always find chaos and God dwells in the midst of chaos.
Firing of my inheritance is fated to fervent uprising in the chaos.
See you in the chaos. I'm waiting for you in the chaos. "
-JINMO 03-06-2011-

"Id (Latin)" represents "Es" which is defined by Nietzsche and Freud.
Under the unconscious, id is the part which includes desire, impulse, emotions except unconscious defense.
It is considered that id originally includes all the instinctual impulses the destructive instinct 'death drive' as well as Eros or the life instincts".
This theory is based on a source of biological papers, id is filled with biological energy from the instincts. And it also includes the repression of early childhood.
Some conditions are met, id would be expressed in all the instinctual desire to break through the ego. To overcome impulse of id, or sublimate id, ego controls it like a man on horseback to hold in check the superior strength of the horse, id.
The id is considered that the workings of the hypothalamus.
(abridged quote from Wikipedia)

JINMO "id".

The string instrument "Jinmoid" released from BassLab Germany is also associated with "id".

JINMO's 2nd exhibition, "Explobition", it features his microscopic BAKUBOKU calligraphy "nanoZen" series.
With the cooperation of "Scalar Corporation" the world-leading manufacturer of high-quality microscope such as introduced to NASA, we will place many microscopes for higher experience of the beauty of microns.

It also features Prix de Caroline Lee awarded "nanoZen 002" at the 30th Salon de Finears Exhibition.
Ms.Caroline Lee the honorary and former chairwoman of "Salon de Mai" known as Picasso and Chagall had submitted their works in their life time, she really appreciated JINMO's "nanoZen 002" as "I really love this artwork, I want to live with this all through my life", and it had awarded for Prix de Caroline Lee at 30th Salon de Finears Exhibition. It was very first time in their 30 years history.

+++ 20110905 JINMO's 101st album, "Orchestrated Wires" has released. !!!!! +++

Yola sup dood, how r u mang? We are super hyper mega giga fine!
JINMO released his 101st album "Orchestrated Wires HQCD" from Avant-attaque!
*We are very sorry but "Avant-attaque HQCD" series will be shipped to Japan only.

And you can buy ""Orchestrated Wires HQCD" at JINMO's solo show "Burnt Offering; 12th Sacrifice" on Tuesday 6 September at Bullets, Roppongi.


JINMO's 101st unaccompanied guitar solo album, the title is "Orchestrated Wires".

You will hear the roar of rainbow shimmering beautiful Bio-mechanoids, the roar of jubilation on MITONOMAGUAI (mythical, ceremonial sex).
You will hear the beautiful, erotic harmony of myriad infinite length dragons intertwined like orbit. Their amorous moves beat organically the fluctuated rhythms.

I just wanted to remove the interference of pre established harmony without it loses depth or scale as symphony which is impossible to compose in improvisation.
The only trouble is, it takes time and effort.

JINMO 2011-09-05

According to descriptions by JINMO, the word in the title "Wires" means "group of nerves in the body, set the internal wiring of electronic equipment, basic elements of strings in superstring theory, and strings on guitar".
Therefore the title "Wires" indicates orchestrated image that intertwined multitudinous of things, things some kind of long.

The sound of "Orchestrated Wires", it is made of many parts including pan in concert with each other and they are orchestrated quite complex, so it supposed be given thorough elaborated mechanical composition. However it gives impression of improvisation filled with freewheeling organic anima on your ears.

You will hear the creak of erotic machines or the breath of mechanical species, and you will feel something exact opposition weaves beautiful chaos in a same space-time.

If you experience "Orchestrated Wires" with headphones at high volume, you will find an explosive silence, complicated purity, and the shimmers of boundlessly free "the beauty of innocence" in the
elaborately composed chaos.

"Orchestrated Wires" is a long waited guitar orchestration album since the release of "Binaural Guitars" (December 16 2011).
Enjoy the resonance of the sound of boundlessly free and innocence with your eardrum and your soul.
We recommend this album for the people who loves progressive contemporary music, edgy techno, experimental music and especially for all guitar lovers.
