About SAITO:

DOWNFALL is the first album under the name SAITO created by Lena Saito, aka Galcid, and produced by accomplished analog synthesizer guru, Hisashi Saito, aka Lena’s husband.

Having descended from a long line of Japanese sword-smiths, the industrial sound of smashing steel is embedded in Lena’s DNA and reflected in her music, however there are also refined, hypnotic tones showing a side with more finesse.

The music itself is not scored and is predominantly improvised.

Words and vocals are ad libbed as well.

Sometimes the machines respond as if through telekinesis, altogether emitting a sound which can be categorized somewhere in the range between modern experimental dance music and something possibly making more sense to enlightened minds a thousand years in the future.

古来からの伝統をもつ日本の刀鍛冶屋に生まれたgalcidlenaと、長年に渡り彼女のプロデュースワークを手掛けてきた齋藤久師Hisashi Saitoが、遂に同じアーティスト目線で共作したユニット「saito」による本作は、過去のgalcidのどの作品にも当てはまらないヒプノティックな作用と、攻撃性を内包している。
