Dharma is an album by the Japanese noise musician Merzbow.[1] The title refers to the Buddhist concept.

"I'm Coming to the Garden..... No Sound, No Memory" refers to the second-to-last line of the novel The Decay of the Angel by Yukio Mishima.

There was no other sound. The garden was empty. He had come, thought Honda, to a place that had no memories, nothing.

—Yukio Mishima, translated by Edward SeidenstickerThe Decay of the Angel

Marimo Kitty is a Hello Kitty combined with a marimo.
