Masayuki Takayanagi

Inanimate Nature

Label: Jinya Disc

Format: CD

Genre: Jazz

Out of stock

the first title in yasunori saito’s exhaustive survey of the music of masayuki takayanagi via his jinya disc imprint... the arrival of these discs in the mms catalogue has been a long time in the making; extremely glad to have these seminal documents of free-scrape/noise-guitar crossover in stock !!!
this disc features takayanagi on solo “tabletop guitar” as recorded “aug 4, 1990 at ‘new direction for the arts, regular concert vol.69’ jean jean tokyo” - nothing at all like fred frith, keith rowe, or jim o’rourke’s experiments in the field; this is visceral, ominous music, full of disembodied clanks and ring-modulated whispers in a full-on haze-field of phasing/flanging sound.
of his later records, this is widely considered to be the “classic” .. (Mimaroglu)
Cat. number: B-0001 (LMCD-1168)
Year: 1990
Recorded August 4, 1990 at New Direction for the Arts regular concert volume 69, at JeanJean, Tokyo.
