"Japanese Ghosts" was an improvised sound collage by Songs of the New Erotics, presented at Studio 303, Toronto on June 27, 2010. The piece was originally untitled but was later given the title "Japanese Ghosts" by S.Higgins based on various impressions of the performance itself and the influence of Studio 303 hosts Dahye and Yuki. Instrumentation for the piece consisted of 1/4" open reel tape, amplified objects, home-built instruments, voice, field recordings and prerecorded studio material on CDR, hand-manipulated vinyl, loops and effects.
