V/A: Minna No Ie (A Home For Everyone) Playbutton Compilation

Charity compilation for the residents of Northeastern Japan. Playbutton is a badge / media player with a built-in headphones socket.

In the shop

This compilation in support of the residents of north-eastern Japan comes out one year on from the tsunami that hit the coast on March 11th 2011. There have been many fundraising efforts over the last year but some projects are still in the balance.

One such project particularly close to our hearts here at Sonore, is Minna No Ie (A Home For Everyone). This project, to build a house open to all, aims to provide somewhere for the residents of the areas of the north-eastern Japanese coast devastated by the catastrophe to come to meet and talk and work out their future together.

A first house of this kind has been built by celebrated Japanese architect Tôyô Itô at Sendai in Miyagi prefecture. A second is planned at Rikuzentakata in Iwate prefecture but EUR 50,000 is still required to complete construction. Tôyô Itô and some young Japanese architects have created Kishin No Kai, an association to raise the remaining funds required.

In partnership with monthly Zoom Japon, Japonaide and Parte, the label Sonore is participating in the financing of this house by producing a playbutton (a wearable badge / audio player).

12 Japanese electronic and experimental musicians have also lent their support. Buying this original compilation will both introduce you to some innovative musicians and allow you to send support to the residents of the region of Tôhoku.

The profits from the sale of the compilation will be sent to the Kishin No Kai association via Japonaide.
