Text by David Toop (excerpt from the Stone booklet):

"With concentration, or elevated tension as he has called it, Akio Suzuki enters completely into the substance of sound, its emergence and its passing. What he does with sound may propose a rarefied world to many people, and yet it possesses a persuasive quality of rightness. One of the most difficult aspects of music and soundwork to explain is the concept of 'right action'. How is that music can be evaluated almost immediately, just as quickly as a fire alarm or a baby's cry?
 
When Akio performs, certain qualities (grace, warmth, a quiet authority of mind and action, an engagement with the vessel of nothingness through which sound can emerge) are evident as presences, as soon as he begins. He begins from a state we call silence, by listening, yet at the same time raises questions about our ideas of what this silence might be.
 
Time passes; fixity gives way to destruction; visual perfection is relinquished within the faintest of sound fields. As for the work, this ceremony returns us to nothing, 'to the feeling of not knowing exactly what is before us', so to the uncanny, to the shell-like ear found by the sea, the 'ungraspable phantom of life', the record of a haunting, time regained. The sound is a parabola, a finger tracing on skin, a brush point, bird in flight."
