This is a piece introduced in the column of the guidebook "OBSCURE SOUND REVISED EDITION". This album was released in 1971 by the founder of Wadazumido-Shuso, a bamboo flute player who established his own style of "Wadazumido" with his unique philosophy and technique, and was highly praised by Toru Takemitsu and ethnomusicologist Fumio Koizumi. The album is based on the philosophies of natural law, and includes A1, which expresses a slight breeze blowing in a quiet forest; A2, which teaches the philosophy of "taking life without death and making it into a family name" through Dao music; A3, which is Dao music for the practice of Kaido; and A4, which originated in Hokuriku folklore and developed into Dao music. The whole piece is an invitation to assimilate with nature and to meditate. An avant-garde piece.

A3: 本調
B2: 真虚霊
