Keiji Haino ( 灰野敬二 ) - Sruthi Box (1997)

| Avant-Garde | Experimental Sruthi Box | Noise |
| Drone |

Sruthi Box (sometimes written as 'Shruti') is a rare three-inch CD given away by Japanese major label Tokuma at local record store chain Disk Union and PSF’s Modern Music shop to anyone who bought all four of the Keiji Haino / Fushitsusha-related Tokuma CDs released in April 1997 (Keeping on Breathing, Drawing Close, Attuning, A Death Never to Be Complete, The Time is Nigh) at the same time. It features Haino singing and playing sruthi box.

Mostly an act of noise-drone, Shruti Box sounds a little like his hurdy-gurdy works, though not as violent or experimental.

Catalog: PSJF-9704 (Tokuma Japan Communications)
