Shinobu Nemoto is a prolific musician, to say the least, and he often shares with INSTALL a lot of his work. When he brought us this singular piece, Installed Teleportation Machine, we were simply blown away by how beautiful it is. We were even more surprised when Shinobu told us that he recorded it specifically for a free release in our INSTALL Digital Archive, and we decided to keep it unreleased until his next full-length album, Idiot, was issued. That time has now passed, and so what better gift could we give at the passing of the 2012 year but this incredible piece of music. ITM is quite simply one of our favorite compositions by Shinobu to date, and we think many of you might agree. It stands alone as an emotive monument in the INSTALL catalog, but also works well alongside Idiot, which is itself a work of engaging depth, introspection and color.
