NOTES:
This EP is a musical adaptation of the hauntings that took place at the mansion of Minamoto no Tohru, which was built in the area of Gojo Paradise (a color district in Kyoto that existed until 2010) and now only a stone monument remains.
After his death, he was often seen wandering around in search of married women, and there are legends of bodies that were possessed and killed, and cruel bodies that were found with all the blood sucked out of their bodies.

五条楽園(2010年まで存在した京都の色街)一帯に建てられ、現在は石碑だけが残る源融の豪邸での怪異を音像化。
死後たびたび人妻を求め彷徨う彼の姿が目撃され、憑り殺された遺体や体内の血液を吸いつくされた無残な遺体が発見された伝承が残る。


1. Elysion 楽園
Before his death, Minamoto No Touru created an Elysion of this world.
Kawara No In," which is said to be the model of Rokujo-in, the residence of Hikaru Genji, in Gojo, Kyoto.
He may have wanted it to be so even after his death.

生前、源融の作り上げたのは現世の理想郷。
現在の京都五条、 光源の邸宅「六条院」のモデルと言われる「河原院」。
死後もそうであって欲しかったのかも知れない。

2. Beauties of the Nights 夜ごとの美女

The site of an Elysion where ghosts are still seen picking up married women. Perhaps it was not paradise that he was unhappy with, but "paradise with beautiful women". I dedicate to the deceased a world like René Clair's "Les Belles de nuit - Beauties of the Night (1952)".

現在でも人妻に声をかける幽霊が目撃される楽園の跡地。
未練は楽園にあったのではなく「美女たちと過ごす楽園」だったのかもしれない。
であるなら
ルネ・クレール監督「夜ごとの美女 (1952)」の世界を亡者に捧ごう、という思いから制作された。

3. Worldly Desires 煩悩
This tune is an opportunity for ghost enduring austerities to renounce worldly desires and obtain true freedom.

煩悩から解き放たれ真の自由を手に入れるべく苦行に耐える亡者の鎮魂曲として制作された。
