Goichi Suda’s studio Grasshopper Manufacture has released a trio of songs for free download to honour victims of Japan’s ongoing state of emergency.

Lauded Silent Hill composer Akira Yamaoka is responsible for two of the tracks – Otomodachi, as you wake and Otomodachi, before you sleep.

Colleague Tak Hiraoka penned a third track, Otomodachi, in the afternoon.

All three tracks are available absolutely free for download or streaming via the studio’s Facebook band page.
