The year 2022 was the 10th anniversary of the opening of Ftarri's physical store in Suidobashi, Tokyo. To mark this milestone, several solo concerts by musicians with whom Ftarri has had close ties since the time of its predecessor, Improvised Music From Japan, were held in the Ftarri store performance space in autumn 2022.

The musician who performed on October 3 was Otomo Yoshihide. That day Otomo planned to play turntable only, but when he spotted the store's harmonium, he had the idea of using it in the performance. As a result, the striking timbres of the harmonium add a special flavor to the beginning and end of his performance in the first set. The second set was a solo performance on turntable only.
