It's been five years since Ftarri, an online CD shop and record label specializing in improvised music, opened a physical store of the same name in Suidobashi, Tokyo. This is the third title in a four-CD series celebrating the store's fifth anniversary. The two tracks are solo performances by female sound artists who play self-made instruments. Track one is a live performance by suzueri, which took place at Ftarri on March 18, 2017. In addition to self-made instruments, she uses an upright piano, a toy piano and various small objects. Track two is Fiona Lee's performance at Ftarri on May 5, 2017 using self-made electronics, various small objects, and water. Both musicians produce highly individual sounds using unique instruments, and succeed in constructing singular musical worlds. Limited edition of 200, consecutive numbering.
