Onden, « hidden field »… a forgotten district in Tokyo. Only a shrine remains.
From now on, hidden fields are everywhere around us, formed by electromagnetism.
Onden is a wavering composition, interleaving two types of soundfields : the electromagnetic ones, produced by the numerous electrical devices of Shinjuku’s busy streets and the nocturnal ones, made audible by birds, insects, murmur and silence in the empty and calm residential streets of Tokyo.
Onden is one of the multiple Tokyo’s sonic ghosts.
