Joji Yuasa

Music for experimental films. Obscure Tape Music of Japan vol. 7

Label: Edition Omega Point

Format: CD

Genre: Library/Soundtracks

In stock


This is volume 7 of Omega Point's Obscure Tape Music of Japan series. Many avant-garde composers made soundtracks for experimental film-maker Toshio Matsumoto. This CD consists of Joji Yuasa's three musique concrète works for his 1960s and 1970s short films. The first track features a heavily broken and meaningless narrator for the short film Andy Warhol: Re-Reproduction (1974); "Document Of The Long White Line" is an obscure, early electronic sound collage with chamber orchestra, and "Autonomy" is pure musique concrète with the inside of a piano, bird-song, the sound of steel springs, etc. "I have been convinced that the role of music for film must be accompaniment for the images. Consequently, the music here is sort of incomplete as independent music. However, I think that this CD is a document of how and what I had tried to explore in the field of film music in the '60s and '70s." --Joji Yuasa. Limited edition of 700 copies.
