As I came to Earth in 1981, I involuntarily came into contact with human race. Except for a few bright encounters, I found the rest, dark and ugly. "Human Encounter" is my diary of these encounters. This album is divided into two categories:

"Dark side" reflects the ugly experiences. I noticed that human beings have a tendency to call everything by a name and misunderstand it later. So I do not care what they may actually mean by a word like evil; but no doubt human beings themselves are the main source of terror, pain and destruction on Earth.

"Bright side" reflects the pleasures I encountered in this planet. I say no pleasure happens on Earth without a human medium; so the corresponding songs are dedicated to individual human beings. Of course at first sight, Earth seems physically alluring, but those are only temporary characteristics. The only immortal is what a man creates.

Now as I am departing this planet, I will only miss a few people like those I named in the "bright side"... Let the others putrefy in the abyss of time.
