The Eastgate Music Shop about the CD release"Autumn In Hiroshima is the long awaited third part of 'The Five Atomic Seasons'. A musical journey accompanying Mr. H.T. to an old Zen Monastery where he is living for a short period of time and getting introduced to the secrets of life and death. Within this rather unemotional period he learns about the contemplative views which he has to develop within himself in contrast to the desastrous life out there everybody is confronted with in these days. Instead of giving up hope after the blasts he feels an enormous energy and change of consciousness which guides him directly to something very strange..."


Regarding the initial Eastgate CD release, neither CD nor the paper inserts show any order number or barcode, but the number given below is the order number the Eastgate Music Shop lists this release.


The Autumn In Hiroshima Calligraphy

The first 300 customers who ordered the CD release of Autumn In Hiroshima through the Eastgate Web Shop received a personally signed hectographed, stamped and numbered Japanese Calligraphy by Edgar Froese of approx. 15cm by 21cm size. The photo shows "The Priniciple Beyond All Probabilities" by Edgar Froese, number 146 of 300.

The Eastgate Music Shop about this item: "As maybe just some of you know Edgar used to be a Font Designer in his time being a student at Art School -- so you will get something really professional in addition to the CD."
