"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)
Following the live album ...no, 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 comes with Apple Lossless (44.1kHz 16bit) high quality sound.
