This record is difficult to describe, and perhaps pointless to do so.  Designed so as to provide a completely unique and intensely personal experience,  Miniature Tokyo's "Listen/Closely" comes closest to being a sort of conceptual ambience where the listener's unconsciousness becomes part of the flow.  Perhaps the sounds at the very last edges of outer space, a vast and impervious stretch of indifferent antimatter.  This is stagnant to the point of spectral, the roar of an ocean billions of miles away.  The drifting echoes in your own head.  Suggestion is often more powerful than the actual.  This one will require some seriously deep listening.
Packaged in a DVD case in a limited edition of 15 hand-numbered copies.  $10 ppd. in the United States, $22 rest of world.
