Makoto Inoue and Yasushi Yamashita’s Inoyama Land project was active in Japan’s environmental music scene, working with key figures including Takashi Sekiguchi and Hiroshi Yoshimura – with whom they developed the sound design for the International Stadium in Yokohama.

Originally released on Haruomi Hosono’s Yen Records imprint, the new vinyl-only release features liner notes by Makoto Inoue.

Danzindan​-​Pojidon follows Light In The Attic Records sub-label Empire of Signs’ release of Inoue and Yamashita’s later environmental compositions, Inoyama Land’s Commissions: 1977-2000.
