Joji Yuasa CD Omega Point + GAP

Joji Yuasa CD “Music for film Gengitsu”  Omega Point

In 2017, Genjitsu was shown at the Kobe Planet Film Archive. It is a film created in 1966 by a director Tetsuji Takechi, known as a legend of Showa eroticism. But this film has been hidden somewhere somehow from the public for a long time. The film’s story focuses around a prostitute and has a strong fantasy literature style to it as one may have guessed from its title Genjitsu (Sun dog; an optical phenomenon that consists of a light source alongside of the Sun in rare climate condition).

 

Actually, among some music tapes that I got from Mr. Yuasa, there was indeed one with the same title. However, since the existence of the tape recording was unknown at the time, I was convinced that it wasn’t “tape music” and I left it untouched for quite a while. Hearing news of the film screening made me check what is on this tape carefully. Overall, the sounds were “prosy” with a lot of silence as well as reoccurring sounds of a prepared piano and sounds created presumably by playing inside of the piano (it is likely to have been amplified). But they were also an accumulation of experimental sounds with elements of tape music such as parallel playback with vocal pieces, delay (or tape echo) and ring modulator. In chapter 2, female jazz vocal is inserted.

According to the Kobe Planet Film Archive, the following names are included in the players list. Toshi Ichiyanagi (maybe inside play of piano), Masao Yagi (jazz piano in chapter 2), Yasukazu Amemiya (percussion).

Harutaka Mochizuki new CD

Harutaka Mochizuki CD “Flageolet Ni Tokeru Chocolate” E-Klageto

Limited to 150, comes in a 7 inch art with inserts

Attention : this one of the most beautiful album I’ve heard for months and probably my favorite with Mochizuki. It’s not a sax album, more like a diary mixing some sequences with sax, short songs, melodica and keyboard. If this one is a trip, it’s more like an invitation with meeting a soul in a small place. Nothing spectacular, sometimes  a bit like Namio Kudo, Mochizuki can move us with only a breath or the birth of a melody. Yes we love Mochizuki and find this album being probably his most personnal and poetic one.

Makoto Kawashima CDR

Makoto Kawashima CDR “Rain” Homo sacer

pro-CDR, this one is  Kawashima’s last statement, he considers this recording has a different one….Kawashima is really as one of the most uncompromised and talented sax player of these last years, he’s almost like a song-teller, far from intellectualism and the usual Kaoru Abe reference. Different from Urabe, slowly he’s showing a true identity. $14

Bunsuirei ltd CDR

Bunsuirei CDR ” Live 08112019at Nanahari” Tall Grass records

Bunsuirei is a trio leade by Yonju Miyaoky who’s 25 and live now in Osaka. Yonju who’s suffering from schizophrenia is a regular collaborator of Chie Mukai and that band opened a few times for Ché Shizu. Yonju is definitively a new name to discover who’s deely rooted in the 90’s scene, from Tori Kudo to Fushitsusha, Kousokuya and early Miminokoto. This CDr is more pop / folk oriented with a singular sensitivity. Homemade CDr like in the old days, limited to 50. You probably understood we love him here, other members here are Haruki Sakurai, Morio Tagami. Yonju is a name that will probably grow up in a near future.
