The field recording was done in the area near “Yasakayama”, where there is a huge substation.

This place is close to my workplace. During my break, I was overwhelmed by the unusual sight of this place where I used to walk habitually, and wanted to create it as a musical piece.

The gap between the great natural scenery and the unusual structures motivates me to express myself.

The music he creates expresses the ordinary life and the scenery of the neighborhood.

Betts(JP) is an electronic sound artist from Okayama, Japan. He is a multi-instrumentalist who mainly plays live instruments such as guitar, but also uses various instruments. He uses field recordings in his works and edits them on the computer.

The performance is done with very little equipment, just a guitar and a microphone connected to two delay loopers, and the electronic droning is processed by computer in real time. Starting with his second release, “Misago,” the strict limit of five songs per piece, each 9 minutes and 58 seconds long, has given him more freedom and a wider range of expression.
