Established 1987 by Seigen Ono. “Vamos pedir a saideira” means “Let’s have a last beer to go”, the first sentence Ono learned. It never end the last beer, go on and on ordering another one. “saída” means “output / exit”. So this is the label, the music should released to the world audience from this gate. If you learn how to use this sentence in Brazil, you can make so many good friends. That’s how Ono start life time project.

「Memories of Primitive Man / Seigen Ono and Pearl Alexander is a wonderfully recorded and highly listenable collaboration between Japanese composer/producer Seigen Ono and American bassist Pearl Alexander. A collection of 16 distinct songs and soundscapes comprised of layers of overdubbed doublebass goodness, samples, percussion and some guitar. The beautifully expressive arco, phat deep pocketed groove playing by Pearl Alexander and the tuneful and masterfully textured sonic sculpting by Seigen Ono. Some of music infers song form and known genres and groove transformed. A rewarding collection that is highly creative yet accessible.」(Mark Dresser)

「音楽家ふたりの聴覚神経が激しく呼応し、音楽の火花を散らす。芳醇なアコースティック音と研ぎ澄まされた音響処理が大胆に交錯する。まるで、原始人の夢を描いた未来からの音楽だ。」(矢野優/「新潮」編集長)
 
「SFで、ゴシックで、ビジョンが壮大すぎて、永遠に未完の映画のサウンドトラックのようだ。」
(都築響一)
 
It’s very much Seigen’s. Simplicity you can walk around in. What it must sound like to stand beside a red wood, someday. Seigen and Pearl」(Arto Lindsay) 
 
「ええ!!!2000年以降のアメリカ映画のサウンドトラックのような趣き。風の音と相性がいいアルバムだよ、これ。より自然体になってきたんだなあ。」(坂本龍一)
 
「この世ではじめての生命の呼吸
濁音の驟雨を受け止める
マジカルな音楽を感じます。」(巻上公一)
 
「お、景色が変わったね?
予測できない旅、運命の悪戯、めくるめく逢瀬。
そんな光景が聞こえて来る音だった。」(三宅純)
 
「この音楽を説明できる的確な言葉がなくて困った。音の表現力って言葉ではまったく及ばない域のものがある。魔力あふれる美しい音の世界に連れて行ってくれるパールに感謝したい。」(本田ユカ/CIBO MATTO)
 
「暗闇を切り裂くコントラバスのフレーズに導かれ、さまざまな物音が交錯する圧巻のサウンドスケープ!」(國崎晋/Sound & Recording Magazine)
 
「(10年ぶりの新作)まだ途中のようですが、かっこいいですね! モニュメントバレーをひとりで歩きながら聴きたい感じ。」(伊島薫)
 
「ひろがり、と、奥。遠近感と触感。ひとの手が楽器で生みだす、瞬間、瞬間、の音の肌ざわりと。
低い音の楽器が好きな女性、っている。でも、低い音の楽器を奏する女性、がでてきたのはそんなに前からじゃない。そして、低い音の楽器を奏する女性に惹かれ、低い音をだしている楽器の女性にちょっと嫉妬まじりの共感をもっている男性が、また、いる。
いろんなかたちの音の粒子が舞って、ひとつのひろがりをつくり、異なった色を重ねている。ひとりの役者がつぎつぎと演じているような、寸劇のミニアテュール。
そんな女性と男性に、微笑みをこめて。」(小沼純一)
 
「Pearl Alexander has put herself at the leading edge of spontaneous music making. Her performance with GEN 311 had me thoroughly engaged as an audience. Now, in collaboration with Seigen Ono, a whole new level of music-making emerges. The elegance and originality of her performance combined with his composition and engineering expertise has produced another beautiful listening experience. Bravi!」(Dr. Diana Gannett)
