This album entitled Afterimage (afterimage) was composed in inspiration from a piece of photograph Hatakeyama found in Istanbul's antique store.
(That is the picture used in the jacket)
Between piled piano and over drive electric guitar, when the afterimage of memory disappears, it disappears and runs over the haze.
A melodic drone sound and an idyllic arpeggio standing up from a chorus modulation like a blurred fog.
A new piece of guitar ambient was born the impression received from the two women in the photograph.
