Nishikawa, Olive, Shiflet

Trio recordings from 2006-2007.
Mixed, edited, sequenced by Mr. Bunsho Nishikawa.

Tim Olive and Bunsho Nishikawa have an excellent long-standing duo and I was honored to join them for several recording sessions and concerts throughout my time in Japan. This collection represents just a small fraction of our output and the many hours we spent together.

The title refers to the amazing but sadly now-defunct venue on Osaka's south side (an eighth-floor establishment with a decrepit roller coaster beneath it) where we recorded and performed together.

4 tracks, 256 kbs, 59:15 playing time, 107.2 MB

((Noise) (5.12.10))

If you follow me on Twitter, you may have noticed this message earlier:

While I'm not entirely satisfied with its level of disjointedness, below is what I came up with post-walk. (Warning: quite loud.) I'll attempt to incorporate it into the track in question tomorrow and see how everything plays out. I have a pretty good feeling about it.
