Dave Phillips and Hiroshi Hasegawa met in 1997 at an event at Tokyo's Antiknock venue featuring Incapacitants, Masonna, C.C.C.C., and Schimpfluch Gruppe. Geographical distance allowed for few connections in the years following, but when they happened, they were always profound. In 2012 the Swiss LUFF festival initiated a Japanese edition of their festival, and asked for Swiss-Japanese collaborations. Naturally, Phillips and Hasegawa reconnected, first at a studio in Kōenji, then as a live collaboration at the LUFF event in Tokyo. The resulting recordings were analyzed and processed and enhanced with additional material, and the result is Insect Apocalypse. Dave Phillips: field recordings; Hiroshi Hasegawa: filters/effects. Recorded on April 26, 2012, at Afterbeat Studio, Tokyo, and on April 29, 2012, at LUFF Japan festival, SuperDeluxe, Tokyo. Additional material recorded by Hiroshi Hasegawa in July 2013 in Tokyo. Additional material recorded by Dave Phillips between 2001 and 2011 in the jungles of Vietnam, Ecuador, Thailand, and Indonesia. Edited by Dave Phillips, December 2013 - February 2014, in Zürich.
