Simon Torssell Lerin / Bettina Hvidevold Hystad have undertaken a cultural pilgrimage in the footsteps of Damo Suzuki. From placing a classied advertisement in a Swedish newspaper Suzuki leaves Japan in early 1968 ending up in the village of Gräsmark. Lerin / Hystad´s book documents what happened to Suzuki in Gräsmark and how he kept in contact with his Swedish friends after becoming a member of Can. During the summer of 2012 Lerin / Hystad travelled together with Suzuki to Japan exploring ideas of improvisation and music as a platform for communication by documenting Damo Suzuki’s Network´s tour. On the 11th of February 2013 the duo performed an improvised concert together with Suzuki at Fylkingen, Stockholm. This work is presented in a vinyl box set containing a book which presents Suzuki & the duo’s journey together as well as a live recording of their performance at Fylkingen. The vinyl box set was released on Clouds Hill on December 13, 2013 and is limited to 500 copies.
