More Info

"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. But most of them has not published on discs or issued for very small edition. This CD 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's not only premiere performance but also John Cage and David Tudor participated 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. Strange!!" [label info]
