It probably doesn’t really say anything at all, although it certainly tries to qualitatively enter the substantive blind indifference of our expanding universe. It’s the kind of narrative which doesn’t move by moving, but this is not the atomised stasis of, say, a Kawabata Makoto deep drone, this is Japanese psychedelia in an Uptight, Green Milk From Planet Orange, Xinli Supreme and Musica Transonic tradition.
