This is a cassette that Tossapol, a sound artist from Bangkok, Thailand, independently released in November 2023, limited to 11 copies.

This is a deep listening soundscape work. Out of print.

The following is a commentary by the writer himself.

"There is a small garden in my father's house where I lived when I was a child. The garden is on the third floor of the house. My father and mother always watered it, but this year, my father and mother are getting older. Now, the number of plants has increased so much that it becomes difficult to care for them. Moreover, the roots are growing out of the pots, and the weight of them is threatening to break the floor. So my father told me to organize the garden and do some maintenance work. I asked them to move the plant and empty pot.

The garden is a meaningful place for me. It was a place where I often played and where I connected with my father, so I decided to record the sounds while gardening there. "

Artist statement by Tossapol:

"There is a small garden in my father's house where I lived as a child. The garden is on the 3rd floor of the house. My father and mother always watered them until this year they got old and there are too many plants to care for. Moreover, the roots stretched out from their pots and their weight could break the floor. So my father asked me to rearrange the garden, move some plants and some empty pots out.

The garden has meaning to me. It's a place that I often played and was a place to connect to my father, so I decided to record some sound while I did gardening there.”
