New lower pricing. Extremely deluxe slip-cased boxed edition documenting this Erstwhile festival from 2002. "The Amplify 2002: Balance Box Set is designed to try to recreate (as much as possible) the experience of what it was like to be in Tokyo in late October 2002, witnessing this incredible week of music. Over 7 hours of music on 7 CDs will contain: 1) 8 of the 12 sets from the festival itself. 2) 2 CDs compiled from the smaller club shows which took place before and after the festival itself, including an entire disc by the all-star guitar septet of Keith Rowe, Tetuzi Akiyama, Oren Ambarchi, Toshimaru Nakamura, Otomo Yoshihide, Burkhard Stangl and Taku Sugimoto. 3) A studio recording by the duo of Günter Müller and Toshimaru Nakamura, recorded that same week. This disc has been carefully sequenced and constructed, and is essentially a regular Erstwhile release contained within the larger box. The box will also feature a DVD by filmmaker Jonas Leddington and a 52 page, full-color booklet with photos by Yuko Zama and twenty separate essays by many of the people involved in the festival."
