Chris H.Lynn and Hiroko Komiya have started collaborating since the spring of 2021. The released digital album “Oto no Yukue “ in Feb 2022, with extracting the instant sound of each land, exchanging like a sound letter, and creating new compositions from the explorations. It became a sketchbook-like album of sounds with seasonal changes, elements of nature, and some distant memories. They also have ongoing projects between here and there simultaneous recording, sound journal, speaking voice, and audiovisual live performance.
Chris H.Lynn と Hiroko Komiya は2021年春よりコラボレーション開始。2022年2月にリリースしたデジタルアルバム＜音の行方＞では、それぞれの土地の今の音を抽出し、音の手紙のように交換し、模索しつつ曲を作曲。季節の移ろい、自然の要素、そしてどこか遠い記憶を含んだ音のスケッチブックのようなアルバムとなりました。また、同時録音やサウンドジャーナル、声とポエム、ライブパフォーマンスのプロジェクトも進行中です。
