Cam Lasky - canivores


canivores by Cam Lasky

 This album is inspired by Tamaki Shino's violent Japanese gothic novels "Cannibal Kannon", which depict three generations of a family that are being played by "something" in the form of a beautiful woman who eats baby flesh and continues to live on, leading to their self-destruction.

 This album was a turning point for me in determining the direction of "How to musicalize the 19th and early 20th century period in Japan with modern technology.

Released: June 22, 2020

 The album was also launched in a cassette tape edition because "I want people to listen to it in the order the author intended".
 However, sales prospects were estimated too low. The limited edition of 50 sold out within two weeks of its launch. We later considered increasing production, but abandoned the idea because of the difficulty in obtaining cassette tapes due to that global pandemic.
