The theme of the Salvaged Tapes 2022 collection is “A Garden Waiting for Rain.” This work allows listeners to experience how people’s individuality and potential grow and bear fruit.

The work was created using only “Noire,” an acoustic piano instrument for Kontakt by Native Instruments.
Each piece is also written as a score that both describes the performance instructions and specifies the various parameter settings, including the settings for the time changes of the plug-ins.
This is an attempt to expand the interpretation of classical music and experiment with how the audience recognizes the individuality of the performer by specifying their settings and the timings of plug-ins of non-individualistic musical devices.
The recording took place in a classical concert hall to reproduce its auditory sensations—echoes and all.
When each performer performs and reproduces the score, the sound may fluctuate depending on the location of the performance, leading to unique results and fluid reproducibility.

The scores are available on this website. Please download them here.
When you download it from the label’s official online shop, the score comes with wav files.

Streaming or any other download services users can download the score here.
