    2018年にリリースした「Cells#2」の続編となる作品。今作はゲストを招いてその演奏を弦楽オーケストラで覆い尽くしていく。CDにはもれなくボーナストラックとして「elegant valley」のDLコード付き、さらに2枚の当たりが含まれている。当たりを引いた方へ3分間の書き下ろし曲を提供予定。

    It’s a string orchestral collection and a sequel to my previous album, “Cells #2”.
    Three years in production, the album features my signature methodology where songs performed by guest musicians are gradually enveloped in multiple layers of string orchestra.
