"Passing through the chaos of the Oort cloud, we reach the cloudless infinite space,  the womb of monolith which the cosmic double helix rainbow shines.
And we will be "Star Children" in the boundless Jubilus." (JINMO)

JINMO's 119th solo album, it is crowning the title "Double Helix Rainbow".

On Twitter (Twilog), JINMO often uses the word "double helix rainbow."
"Double helix" is common element to the double-helix structure of DNA as you know, and it has used in the design for the logo of "DNA Music Lab" which is the predecessor of Avant-attaque in the latter half of 1980s.
"Certainly alive but at the same time we are certainly heading for death, we are on the double helix of Eros and Thanatos."
As you can see in the words, it seems that the important concept for JINMO "no border between life and death." is embodied in double helix as primordial design for life.

This album "Double Helix Rainbow" is the fantasic, beautiful sound universe but dope in a sense.
Double helix rainbow shines in the universe.
Binaural beats accelerate the velocity and rise gradually, going intertwined beautifully like DNA.
Pulsations beat faster in synchrony.
Complex, dense, many layered drone orchestration.
What an ascending feeling with Jubilus.
When I bask in this sound, I feel like I was an astronaut who has been tempt to far away of the universe, to the home of Gods.

Cover picture is the beautiful "Double Helix Rainbow" appeared on July 15 2009, it has taken by Utsuro Takigawa.
It is not composite picture.

Enjoy "Double Helix Rainbow", it would be the must listen album for all JINMO manias.
Trip away to the Jubilus over the beautiful but radical double helix rainbow!

It has just 9 days passed since the release of previous album "Life 120505", JINMO's 119th solo album (100th from Avant-attaque) "Double Helix Rainbow" is now available in Avant-attaque.
Needless to say but it comes with AAC(320kbps) high quality sound.

We are super hyper mega giga fine!
JINMO has just released his 118th album "Life 120505".
We are happy to announce that the release of "Life 120505" for download and "Life 120505" in High Quality CD at the same time.

"The night of my previous show "Life" that I died and reborn, it was Easter night and the night of the new moon.
Not any other night for my "Life" afterlife but tonight.
Tonight is the night of first full moon since the night of the new moon, the night of special moon.
Tonight, the moon would be so close to the Earth, it is "Supermoon" that shines 14% larger and 30% brighter than usual."
(JINMO, 2 hours before the performance on May 05 2012)

JINMO's 118th album, "Life 120505".

Following the live album, it should be called "Life" album...
The newest album of the great popularity "Life" series, it is the live recording of his unaccompanied guitar solo show.

Yes, it is his "Life 120505".

This is a live recording of his live show held on Saturday 5 May 2012.
This is the first "Life" since his reborn on 14 April 2012.

The show was crowded with audience twice as many than usual, and audience were packed in the venue just as if they were in crowded train during rush hour.
The audience experienced the ear-splitting roar at 120dB, this tremendous playing there.
Everyone was convinced, that the reborn JINMO is full of energy even more fiercely than before.
Of course JINMO played explosively, and he that dared to use wireless for the show, had danced like a dancer fast and violently more than before, and he had burst into jam stuffed audience.
There was the audience beaten his head by carbon made Jinmoid.
On the verge of ending, JINMO took out a pair of Japanese swords. Then he put a sword into between the fingerboard and strings of Jinmoid and achieved the method of prepared guitar.
At the same time he hacked, rubbed, tapped the strings violently with another Japanese sword....
The appearance of JINMO, was just like a phantom.

You can see thepicture taken by photographer Mona Ave on following link;

The recording has done completely with stereo microphone, without any line signals at all.
"Life 120505-1" is 6 minutes 47 seconds of high-speed complex performance of natural overdrive sound in the middle part of the show.
"Life 120505-2" is 10 minutes 53 seconds of performance in the distortion sound with abundant harmonic overtone in the final part of the show.
This second half is the explosive performance using 2 Japanese swords.
The track has only fixed the sound quality on the editing but it is exactly raw sound on the show.
No overdubbing on editing, no effect such as samplers on playing.
Every sound had emitted only by a guitar with JINMO's two arms and 2 Japanese swords.

The sound you listen, the explosive performance you feel, it had done by the man who had succeeded barely in 32-meter walking rehabilitation accompanied by a nurse just 2 weeks ago. It would be big surprise even though you were not there.
Please enjoy this record at explosively high volume and share the joy of the fact of his revive.
JINMO is certainly revived, and his energy surpasses far the energy of the former JINMO.

Following description is JINMO's words in the invitation to the show "Life 120505".

"Two major activities as a musician, "concert" and "composing".
Of these, I've realized almost of my ideal for composing by download release from Avant-attaque.
It made possible to liberate the release timing in response to the intention of the artist, and fully liberalization of contents or sizes.

And the other one, concert, I have attempted various styles to be close to my ideal for a long time.
I wish my concerts would be the "birthplace of new things".
Strongly, I strongly wish so.
That's the place there are no pre-established harmony, no trial-and-error or expressions for the expectations of audiences.
There is Jubilus to meet unexpected "something new", and I wish to be illuminated by unexpected Jubilus that even the player itself unexpected.
At the same time, I wish the people who were there, were not mere spectators.
I wish they were witnesses of an event or a phenomenon, were spiritual cooperators who wish the coming of Jubilus with me, and I wish they were the one who illuminated by Jubilus to meet "something new".
I gave a name "Life" to the jubilant moment that born "something new".
Life is live, life is everyday.
The place suitable for the birth of new things, it would not be an existing commercial space for music industry.
At last we got the place ready for it.
And the people who being illuminated by Jubilus together, I decided to limit the invitation to the one who would be Jubilus.
The attendees for the occasion, are 12 people except me.
At last, I wish you would be the one of them, I strongly wish so.


This concert "Life", has produced by JINMO in order to be "birthplace of new things" by JINMO, and the intention has been splendidly realized.
This is it, its recording.

Every cover design and cover picture for the "Life" series has done by photographer Toru Tanno.
There's nothing better than this to represent the "birthplace of new things".

This album "Life 120505" would be the must listen album for all JINMO manias.
Please enjoy at blasting volume so rad!

It has just 12 days passed since the release of his previous album "After Life 120422", JINMO's 118th solo album (99th from Avant-attaque) "Life 120505" is now available in Avant- attaque.
Needless to say but it comes with AAC (320kbps) high quality sound.
