Special edition is added a CDR. It consists of all tracks of “Electronic Works 1”, released in 2008 and out of print, and unreleased a piece Telescopic for ondes martenot as bonus track. limited to 80 copies.

*80 copies limited edition* "This CD includes four of my electronic works. The oldest piece Concret II composed in 1985, points toward noise sound. The triptych, Go And Back series composed in 1996 are as if the same print in different colors, because the MIDI data are quite the same, but the sound materials are different. Since around 2005, I often use CD-J players to compose electronic music, it was the influence from Luc Ferrari to me. Circuit II was composed in 2006, used 2 CD-J players. The most important point of advantage of CD-J player for me, was previously I can prepare sound materials to make CD-R which is to be processed by CD-J, which is difficult by turntable for LP records. Bustling for Luc was composed in 2007 and dedicated for my souvenir with Luc Ferrari. The material is only the environmental sound of busy quarters in Tokyo. On the other hand its systematic transformation is under the influence of American experimental music, particularly James Tenney. - from liner note of “Electronic Works 1” - from liner note of “Electronic Works 1”.

Telescopic was commissioned and premiered by Motoko Oya in 2014. In terms of direction of this piece, it belongs to my "Punctuation" series. Since it is a piece for ondes martenot, it is an instrumental piece, not electronic music. Although I had been interested in ondes martenot for a long time, this was the first time I actually worked on it, and I remember that I struggled a lot with it. In particular, ondes martenot requires many switchings between various operations to change tones, etc., and it was difficult to grasp the degree of difficulty of these operations. In "Punctuation" series, sound events are treated extremely symbolically. It is, so to speak, a perceptual game of expectation and its betrayal, and may seem static compared to my electronic music, which tends to be created by the expressive power of sound." - Haruyuki Suzuki
