invisible birds continues lethe's catastrophe point series with a 2cd set which includes 2 recordings in his
series, one recorded in switzerland in 2004 and the other recorded in scotland in 2006.
lethe's series take place in abandoned industrial sites, using drones, chains, an occasional instrument, objects
found in the space, but most importantly the resonant qualities of the space.
the wire magazine explained this series "the music sounds like it's taking place in a vast, pitch black aircraft
hangar of the soul".
yannick dauby said ""these are kiyoharu's obsessive abstractions dealing with physical substance and volume".
the packaging for this release was done in collaboration with kiyoharu kuwayama and letterpress printer ben owen
with the hope of achieving something that reflects the beauty and intensity of the work.
