[label info]
"And we end this trip with the music of of Shinobu Nemofu, who works as Summons Of Shining Ruins, among various other names. He has had releases on Install, Resting Bell, Analog Path and his own Moufu Rokuon label and here has a crazy long title to offer here and I have no idea what it means - Google translate offers no help. The music is created with an electric guitar and a tape recorder and is a beautifully low humming affair. One of slow, minimal development; it's there for sure, but Summons Of Shining Ruin works on a slow curve to unfold his story. Or, perhaps, unfold is not the right term; only towards the end things get louder, but that's in the twenty-third minute only, and we seem to be left with the residual sounds of the guitar and the tape-recorder on repeat with itself. I was reminded of Chihei Hatakeyama's music in this area, and maybe also of Machinefabriek, but perhaps Summons Of Shining Ruin was a bit darker than usual. Not really a big surprise, but surely a great piece." [FdW/Vital Weekly]
