  • Release Date

    28 August 2019

  • Length

    12 tracks

This is the second studio album from 3776, a Japanese idol group themed after Mount Fuji. A heavily conceptualized album centered on the idea of passage of time and weather, Saijiki presents 31 songs spread through 12 tracks, each one representing a month of the year, sung by Chiyono Ide (3776’s only member as of the album’s release) through the point of view of Mount Fuji.

Throughout the entire project, a loop of Chiyono chanting the 12 Chinese zodiacs plays, giving it a polytonal character. There are also interpretations of traditional Japanese songs (such as “Sakura Sakura”) and European classical music (Claude Debussy’s “Clair de Lune”). Even the track lengths are given meaning: they are either 6'00" or 6'12" long (with the exception of February, which is 5'48" long), based on their respective month’s number of days.
