Text excerpt of artist statement by Christopher Olson aka Standard Grey, 27 February 2023:

"As of this writing, I've called Nara, Japan home for almost 12 years. Nara was the capital of Japan 1300-odd years ago. Before Tokyo, before Kyoto, the Nara Period was a short, but essential era in the foundation of the country. The history here is deep. Fast-forward a millennium and change, the winding backstreets in parts of the city and its outer surroundings retain an ancient atmosphere. It's a wanderer's paradise with countless temples, shrines, rural roads and ancient trails leading into the mountains. There is a mysterious undercurrent to this place, a long reverberation in the landscape. After 12 years here, I know that I've barely scratched the surface. When I pack my recording bag and head out on a ride or rumble, there is always the feeling that with the proper attention, something interesting might reveal itself around any corner.

My dictionary defines “peregrination” as : a journey, especially a long or meandering one, usually made on foot- often with an element of pilgrimage. and by bicycle around Nara and its temples, shrines and trails, before and during the current plague times. recording gear in tow- my trusty Zoom H6, a pair of janky cassette recorders, and any combination of cheap mics, nice mics, contact mics, hydrophones, percussion mallets…failing any of the above, iPhone voice memos or recording in situ into granular synthesis apps on my ipad... 

[-]

...Ultimately, this release is a bit of a thank-you letter to my chosen home."
