experimental music of japan vol.4
agencement vol.1 - early works 1983-1986
edition omega point opx-004
|at first, agencement was started as an anonymous tape music project in 1985. it started from among indies movement that had occurred like being in inverse proportion to the calm situation of mid-eighties domestic improvised music scene.|
as for activity of violin performances that i started from the influence of european improvised music after it is related to the edit of underground music magazine named avant-garde that kanazawa university students issued from 1976 until 1979, several years have passed from beginning.
i played the violin in various places at that time, for instance, have participation at "the 2nd ten minutes solo improvisation festival" (1982) at kyoto seika university, and i sometimes performed violin + live electronics by solo at the cafe named merzbau, etc.
i was gradually editing them with multi-track though the magnetic tapes that recorded live performances became a huge amount. such a work style originates from the drawing works which i am starting producing from teens.
the work of 1st lp (side b) was made by using cheap analog multi-track tape recorder and was spent one year. the flow of such time has not basically changed in the studio work of me digitalized now too. a lot of time has passed any more.
at the time of 1986, i was able to come in contact with artists such as merzbow, toukaseibunshi, 10t and others through compilation cassette releases etc. masami akita who had contact for several years recommended it though i did not think that i make lp of myself at first.
