We are super hyper mega giga fine!
JINMO released his 131st album "Kaoz".
We are happy to announce that the release of "Kaoz" for download and "Kaoz" in High Quality CD at the same time.


"If you suggested that harmony and discord as the principle law of entropy, and chaos are manifestations of the energy, life force or artistic naivete, Mr. Sakae Osugi, it become more severe at present day, beauty is not in harmony any longer but is in discord. And its realization is achieved by entirely disordering.
Firing of my inheritance from God is also destined to discord. I will dedicate this album to you, Sakae Osugi."(JINMO)

JINMO's 131st album, the title is "Kaoz".


JINMO says that he suggest "gigantic chaos filled with beauty" with coined word "Kaoz".
As the words of the above, this album is dedicated to Sakae Osugi who is a philosopher, writer and anarchist about 100 years ago.
Throughout the ages, JINMO calls him who devoted his life for self-expression as "the saint of chaos" as congenial spirits than revere.

The concept of "plectics pulse" that JINMO often talks, it beautifully resonated with Sakae Osugi's declaration that "Harmony is not beauty.
Beauty exists only in discord."
"Plectics pulse" by JINMO, is an inherited the concept of Dr. Murray Gell-Mann, a distinguished fellow of the Santa Fe Institute known as study of complex adaptive systems, the concept which is the "simplicity" and "complexity" are not contradictory, and it is considered to be undifferentiated rhythm expression in musical time perception.
It is not an artificial "rhythm" that has periodic repetition on the premise, it is suggested to be more free-wheeling "pulse" at the same time.

Though the album "Kaoz" sounds very complex overdubbing, it is unaccompanied guitar solo album made of just one Jinmoid.
With minutely complex fast guitar play and the control many delay including reverse delay, JINMO produced chaos like this.
Powerful and beautiful cover photo with red and black contrast is taken by Mr. Mixtribe.

Well, there is words by Sakae Osugi which JINMO often quotes on twitter; "There is contemplation as a consequence of this activity. And there is fascination as a consequence of this contemplation. As a result of the fascination there is emotion. And this emotion calls forth further activity. Therein is no simple subjectivity or objectivity.Subjectivity and objectivity are congruent. This is my ecstatic frontier as a revolutionary...aesthetics frontier.
(“Expansion of Life”)
Observe your own ecstatic, aesthetics frontier as a revolutionary in the Midst of great chaos"Kaoz" filled with beauty.

We recommend this album to contemporary music, edgy techno lovers and experimental music but also recommend to Guitar Manias.

It has just 4 days has passed since the release of his previous album "Wolfbeats 3", JINMO's 131st solo album (112th from Avant-attaque) "Kaoz" is now available in Avant-attaque!
Needless to say but it comes with AAC (320kbps) high quality sound.

"Being in close range to feel their breath. It is pleasure for guests but it is also for the player.
The same as love. Revive the erotic Jubilus in Schubertiade.
To all my friends involved, we are "accomplices".
"Cooperation" would share and reduce responsibilities, sometimes it would put blame on another. However, "accomplice", it takes same risk one another. Consequently, it breaks through the door of same risk, and it could share jubilus achieving and winning realistically and double resonantly.
My accomplices, smile together at the transgress the border of taboos.
Give pleasure to all our bodies, take jubilus in all our hearts, full speed ahead." (JINMO)


JINMO's 129th solo album, the title is "Life 120917".


Following his live album, it should be called his "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 120917".
This is a live recording of his live show held on Monday, 17 September 2012.


In the night "Life 120917", JINMO played "hymn 312: What a Friend We Have in Jesus" mainly and he made the welkin ring of his explosive prayer beautifully, gentle and vehemently.
The following are a part of impressions after the show.


"JINMO... When I listened to hymn number 312 at first today, it moved me tears telling what I've looking for. I got your affectionate life firmly. Thank you."


"I'm not sure it was osteoclast and osteoblast but it comes to my mind. Break itself through the fear of the brink of breaking for not only built to live or grow.
Destruction of cells and repair, reproduce, rebirth or regeneration, physiological action is reasonable.
Wonderful creatures. Organs from the brain, conduction sound and desire to create something from here.
Everything has blown away into thin air at the show though I was with anguish. My brain has rejected definitely attempted to touch with idle thoughts or boring bound habit.
Fretted over the circuit leading up to the thinking. My brain, my heart, my spine, my lung, my blood, everything has directly linked each other and respond directly. It was amazing."


"I believe good music takes us to places we cannot reach otherwise.
You took me somewhere I've never been before. Thank you. I really didn't know what to expect but it was incredible. I really want to see hear more. Thanks again for having me."

"I was filled with happiness to feel something has broken and reborn.
Thank you."



The recording has done completely with stereo microphone, without any line signals at all.
The track have 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 10 fingers.

Following description is JINMO's words in the invitation to the show "Life 120825".


"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 120917" would be the must listen album for all JINMO manias.
Please enjoy at blasting volume so rad!

It has just 6 days passed since the release of his previous album "Up To Eleven".
JINMO's 129th solo album (110th from Avant-attaqque) "Life 120917" is now available in Avant-attaque.
Needless to say but it comes with AAC (320kbps) high quality sound.

JINMO released his 128th album "Up To Eleven".
We are happy to announce that the release of "Up To Eleven" for download and "Up To Eleven" in High Quality CD at the same time.


"I feel strong correlation between concentration of testosterone and artistic impulse.
Testosterone is not only the foundation of the instinct of procreation as a male, but it also affect activeness and aggression.
In other words, more purified art is away from passiveness or the defensiveness.
The most purified art is opposite to the vestiges of contemplation, it is the vestiges of impulses that would be similar to "riot", I think."(JINMO)

JINMO's 128th album, the title is "Up To Eleven".

The volume knobs of guitar amplifier is usually up to "10".
The album title "Up To Eleven" is derived from the idiom which is meaning over the maximum, "Turning it up to '11' and play it explosively loud".

As its title suggests, every sound in this album is filled with very strong life force.
JINMO plays intense and unique distorted guitar sounds explosively at high speed like tongues, and complex pulse sounds which should be called as Plectics Metronome overlap the sounds.

Of course JINMO played BassLab's guitar "Jinmoid", and the unique distortion are made by "Shoujou (heaven and earth)" that built jointly by Ideyha and JINMO.
JINMO says that Ideyha's Shoujou is the Pandora box which helps Jinmoid to metamorphose into "hardcore techno machine with voice of wolf". And you know this would be his favorite and an essential for his recent shows.
JINMO played them loud with 200 watts ZT Amp and recorded with microphones.
Thus he used only Shoujou for effector, and he had recorded to focus on reproducing raw sound just adding some adjustment of panning or sound quality.

In addition, the complex pulse sound is also made by Jinmoid.
Here is what symmetrically, through a complex process in a computer sound Jinmoid, wasprocessed into a mechanical feel raw and parallax and above.
It is interesting that the sound is so mechanical but it gives very ferocious biological impressions.

Although above two guitar sounds show completely different vectors, they are just like organic compounded in this album as "vestiges of similar impulse to riot" in both sounds.

Cover design and the picture done by JINMO himself.
"Peony" the flower that with Jinmoid is as a woman's sexual organ, and Japanese sword is a metaphor of man's sexual organ. And they symbolize Eros and Thanatos as well.
As JINMO's words on the beginning, it suggests that this album is based on "strong correlation between concentration of testosterone and artistic impulse".

We recommend this album to guitar manias, contemporary music fans and impromptu music fans but also recommend to edgy techno lovers.
Enjoy "Up To Eleven" so loud as it says!

Just 7 days passed since the release of previous album "Vision".
JINMO's 128th solo album (109th from Avant-attaque) "Up To Eleven" is now available on Avant-attaque!
Needless to say but it comes with AAC (320kbps) high quality sound.

We are happy to announce that the release of "Vision" for download and "Vision" in High Quality CD at the same time.


"During the performance, my heart cells have undergone the necrotic process. I was not determined to keep playing until my death such as "tragic resolution". But rather the contrary, I felt it is "deserved jubilus" to keep playing even if I'm dead." (JINMO)

JINMO's 117th solo album, "Vision".
The vision in the midst of his death on 14th April 2012.

As you already know, after the show "Life 120414" on Saturday 14th April, JINMO found serious abnormalities on his heart and he had transported to Saint Luke's International Hospital in an ambulance as soon as audiences left the venue.
He was diagnosed with acute myocardial infarction and received emergency surgery.
In the midst of this performance, the part of JINMO's heart has cut off blood flow and began to die.
It is literally deadly explosive performance, without any metaphors.
The sound in the midst of his death.
The posthumous work of the former JINMO, it had released as the album
"Life 120414" on 30th April 2012.
However it had recorded just 10 minutes 41 seconds in the show.
It is the documentary on several ten minutes before his death.

And this album "Vision".
This is live documentary of the show on Saturday 14th April 2012, and is the album which has rearranged 53 fragments extracted from other parts that were not included on the album "Life 120414".


During the performance, after the performance, during the transportation and during the surgery, JINMO says that his consciousness lost continuity and being suspended and his time sense also interrupted.
And he recognized himself in the place neither earthly nor unearthly, such as "no border between the living and the dead".
Cover art and cover picture had done by the photographer Ms.Mona Ave.
Of course, it is the appearance of JINMO in the performance at the time of the day, April 14th 2012, it is the portrait of the deceased the former JINMO.

This album "Life 120414" would be the must listen album for all JINMO manias.
Open your mind to empathize with the sound in the midst of his death, to see the "Vision" what JINMO saw in the midst of his death.

Just 7 days passed since the release of previous album "Life 120825", JINMO's 127th album "Vision" (108th from Avant-attaque) is now available on Avant-attaque!
Needless to say, but it comes with AAC (320kbps) high quality sounds.
