Kuwayama Kijima SHRINE Vinyl Record
Liner notes by c thornton: I'd heard stories about Kuwayama and was told to get in touch with him when I got to Japan. I heard things about him running from black caves full of bats and clapping his hands in dark tunnels full of sleeping homeless people to make sure the acoustics were just right. Chased by old men and security guards. Setting up recording session under giant horse statues and being afraid of ghosts. I showed up at Nagoya train station and he swooped down in all black to take me to a nine hour apartment floor marathon of Go Gos records and unfiltered Hope cigarettes. Later he got very dressed up and Kijima and a girl with wheels named Ma-Mi showed up and drove us all over town while K clapped his hands to check those acoustics in all kinds of places. We fled from Japanese school girls lighting off fireworks. "They are very strong" said Kijima. Soon we were breaking into a vast Shinto shrine at 1am, moving barricades to drive in the van with the recording equipment. As we walked through the enormous shrine gate Ma-Mi warned me in a hushed voice that we were entering the world of the spirits. We walked down a long gravel path under a tunnel canopy of trees with occasional circles of light on the path breaking up the hot humid Japanese dark. I made jokes while they set up the equipment until Kuwayama tersely turned to me and said "It has started". Eventually a security guard emerged from the woods and ordered us to stop doing what we were doing. Kuwayama politely and formally said "excuse me". The guard disappeared and K then ordered us to continue immediately. Conduit creations 007 art: ct / photos: iwata ma-mi / vinyl master: paul gold recorded june 04 . atsuta shrine .
