The cover design, created by Miya Kaneko, showcases a digital map highlighting the locations and origins of the participating artists, visually representing the diverse backgrounds and cultures involved in the project.

In a world saturated with technology and digital culture, this project offers a stop, a breath, and a unique meeting of ancient customs with contemporary artistic practices and artists’ visions of the future. It takes inspiration from the past in a search for raw energy, cultural roots, and unique sound material. This compilation contains sonic metaphors and ways of preserving, reflecting upon, and using culture as a sound source. Buddhist chants and ancient instruments from Japan serve here as a case study, highlighting the relationships between technology, tradition, and culture.
