This collab from Israeli avant-musician Igor Krutogolov (Kruzenshtern & Parohod) and Japanese cyberpunk author, man-machine-chaos-reporter Kenji Siratori (who btw mentioned @Discogs in 287 so far releases) looks to be their second work after Catastrophic Cells CDr. It was previously out in Japan as Dark Water CDr on Karakuri label, but shortly after that disappeared. According to Igor, there was even a book related to this CDr, and also there could be even a few quite obscure CDr re-pressings, but at least for European scene this album got a misty story, dark as itself.
Current MP3 version is aimed to backup this story and to spread this dark tunes to wider audience.

Kenji Siratori is a Japanese cyberpunk author and internet self-promoter. He first gained attention in 2006 by writing to as many industrial, ambient, EBM and goth bands he could find, including "reviews" of them in his idiosyncratic style, and asking to collaborate. His scattergun approach proved successful, despite his reviews of non-sequitirs and non-sensical cyberspeak being interchangeable, and a slew of collaborations from flattered musicians were soon foisted upon the world.
