"It is, it isn’t" is a record of a real session.
This album is practically unedited; songs are recorded in order they were played.
the album has three tracks which were recorded in Chihei Hatakeyama’s studio.
the looped, minimalistic electric guitar melody transformed to imaginary drone sound.
floating electric guitar drone are pulling the listener into some sort of long dreamtime.
