"I think it is wrong that people die for "politics" or "economy", however I don't think it is wrong that people die for "religion", "science" or "art".
Moreover, I do believe that people shoud be ready to risk their life for it."
JINMO's 116th album, "Life 120414".
Following the live album ...no, it should be called "Life" album...
The 3rd album of the great popularity "Life" series, it is the live
recording of his unaccompanied guitar solo show.
Yes, it is his "Life 120414".
This is a live recording of his live show held on Saturday 14 April 2012.
After the show "Life 120414" on Saturday 14th April, JINMO found serious abnormalities on his heart. As soon as audiences left the venue, he had transported to Saint Luke's International Hospital in an ambulance.
He was diagnosed with acute myocardial infarction and received emergency surgery.
(He progressed favorably and already left the hospital.)
This is the documentary on several ten minutes before his death.
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.
This is the posthumous work of the former JINMO.
(He is powered up as the further, reborn JINMO.)
Instrument that he played is "Jinmoid".
Effector is the special device "Shoujou" (heaven and earth) †which is jointly developed with Ideyha.
Amplifier is his recent favorite ZT Amp's "Lunchbox".
It is exactly fresh raw sound!
The show was in the intense roaring sound in maximum 120dB.
Incidentally, the sound pressure level in a noisy factory is 90dB, train passing on railway underpass is 100dB, machine riveting and car horn makes 110dB, and 120dB is the sound pressure around the jet engine on the plane.
This 120dB is certainly sound level to affect the human body.
The recording has done completely with stereo microphone, without any line signals at all.
10 minutes of intense play on the second half is singled out from about 1 hour of his play, we've made the track as an album.
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 emitted only by a guitar and JINMO's two arms (sometimes he used his tongue though!).
Everytime after JINMO's show, audiences talk about their surprise and excitement †with a lot of words such as "shooting", "barrage" or "bombing. JINMO's explosive performance on this show is exactly it is.
The sound remind us the most intensive battle scene of the movie "Apocalypse Now". Yes, it is the sound in the midst of madness.
Following description is JINMO's words in the invitation to the show "Life 120414".
. . .
"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.
Similar to previous "Life" album, cover design and cover picture by photographer Toru Tanno.
There's nothing better than this to represent the "birthplace of new things".
This album "Life 120414" would be the must listen album for all JINMO manias.
By all means, please enjoy at blasting volume so rad!
It comes with Apple Lossless (44.1kHz 16bit) high quality sound.
