Tokyo-based sound artist and improviser Makoto Oshiro carries out live performances and installations in which he creates sound using self-made devices and remodeled pre-existing objects. Beijing-based musician/poet Yan Jun, one of the leading Chinese artists on the experimental/improvised music scene, creates music and produces installations freely utilizing electronics, field recordings and voice.

This album was studio-recorded on February 22, 2017, when Oshiro was visiting Berlin and Yan Jun was in that city on a long-term residency. The two tracks are about 22 minutes each. The instruments listed on the album cover are "objects" (Oshiro) and "feedback" (Yan Jun). The noises produced include clattering, rotation noise and sustained sound. In Track 1, various low-volume noises are sent forth in a calm and simple way throughout the piece; while in Track 2, numerous multi-layered noises cover the space and also produce intervals of high volume. This album is remarkable not just for the straightforward expression of each artist's musicality, but also for the superb collaboration achieved in the performances.

大城真は東京在住のサウンド・アーティスト / 即興演奏家。自作装置や、既製品を自ら改造した装置で音を作り出し、ライヴ・パフォーマンスをおこなったり、インスタレーション作品を発表している。Yan Jun は中国、北京在住の音楽家 / 詩人で、実験 / 即興音楽シーンにおいて中国を代表する存在。エレクトロニクス、フィールド・レコーディング、ヴォイスなどを駆使した音楽制作、インスタレーションをおこなう。

本アルバムは、Yan Jun がドイツ・ベルリンにレジデンスとして長期滞在中、大城がベルリンを訪れた2017年2月22日にスタジオ録音した、どちらも22分程度の2曲を収録。ジャケットに表記された使用楽器は、"objects" (大城) と "feedback" (Jan Jun)。カチカチ音、回転音、持続音、その他のノイズ音が放たれる。終始、控えめな音量の各種ノイズ音を淡々と繰り出す1曲目。対して2曲目は、いくつものノイズ音が多層化して空間を覆い、大音量の時間をも生み出す。個々人の音楽性が端的に表現されているばかりでなく、コラボレーションのすばらしさも特筆ものの秀作。
