Pratical Concert 1976-78 (2 Cd)
Label: Edition Omega Point
GAP is an improvisation group which was founded by Kiyohiko Sano, Masaru Soga and Masami Tada in the Mid 1970’s. Gap had only one album on the famous ALM records, and from the early time, they played oscillators and synthesizers, adding to simple self-made instruments, and made a free improvisational performance which is comparable to Taj-Mahal Travellers. Especially for Tada who was under tutelage of Takehisa Kosugi, GAP was a missing-link which lead him from East Bionic Symphonia to Marginal Consort.
DISC 1: Practical Concert (1976)
On December 3rd, 1976, live at Studio Ars-Nova. It was a part of a political demonstration, which wa
s taken place as a Trans-Tokyo Car Concert. After the show, they performed in a moving car with a banner of anti-establishment message. The LP, “GAP”, which was released by ALM Records has some part of this live recording but this release has another version of sound source which Tada recorded. The performance in this CD is almost a full length, meaning even the part left out of the previous LP is included.

As part of a concert series, "EX House" and some part of a live performance called GAP Exhibition at Komyoin Kan'non Hall. It is a segment of a performance, which is originally longer than one hour.
