 This work “Aoi-no-Ue” is composed mainly based on metamorphosed sound of Noh-chant. The other sound  is concrete sound such as birds songs, water drops, glasses, warped sound of vibraphone, some genera ted electronic sound and others. My Blue Sky (No.1) is a special electronic work for me, for most of  my other works on this field are based on White Noise.

Toshi Ichiyanagi LP “Music for Tinguely” Edition Omega Point

New designed cover version of OMEGA POINT’s early LP limited to 50 copies!
Ichiyanagi is the best known composer for domestic and foreign avant-garde music fans. Especially in  his brilliant 60’s, he made many great tape music. This LP consists of his obscure three tape works . “Music for Tinguely” was made from junk objects of kinetic sculptor Jean Tinguely. “Appearance” is  live electronic music. It was not only premiere performance but also John Cage and David Tudor part icipated in performance. Very noisy and hard core!! “Music for Living Space” was composed for inner space of ‘Sun Tower’ of World Expo in Osaka. Computer generated voice reads architect Kisyo Kurokawa’s manifest.

Only a few $35


Great White Light LP Omega Point 1

Great White Light organized by Seiji Onishi, Kazuo Kawasumi, Mitsuyoshi Shioya, Goji Hamada performed at the Kishi Memorial Hall in Shibuya, Tokyo, on February 13, 1971. Ten years after the performance, Onishi released a recording of it in LP format as an appendix to his collection “The Works of Seiji Onishi 1966 → 1981”, hereinafter referred to as “Works”). Given that “Works” was published in a small edition, and Onishi moved to Belgium soon after, it was difficult to get our hands around this documentation of the use of sound in the Japanese art of the 1970s. A reissue of this recording is Japanese Art Sound Archive’s 1st LP release.

Great White Light was full of noises created by the wind from the air blowers hitting the microphones. The artists stood in the center of the venue surrounded by the devices: six loudspeakers and air blowers, all facing outward, with a fixed microphone in front of the air outlet of each blower•3. Seats for the audience surrounded the circle, and a beam projector was set next to the wall. During the performance, Onishi operated the transformers of the blowers, and Shioya the lighting. Hamada performed his “action voice” with four microphones•4. In addition to this setup, Taj Mahal Travellers joined as a guest performer. Initially, they had planned to perform only with the blowers and voice, but just before the concert, they got suddenly overtaken by pre-performance anxiety and decided to invite the guests.
(note: this reissue was made from original LP, and some sound problems – slight surface noise and vibration – are on recording.) Ltd to 300, just incredible, noisy and libertaire !
