1992 CD reissue of an album originally released only in Japan. "This music is not only concerned with voices. The voice is the element which unifies the differing treatments. Through this point of reference the processes are exposed and allowed an identity beyond the role of pure manipulation. The technical procedures are not in themselves important. They are devices. A vocabulary of musical electronics (as opposed to electronic music) to structure the voicings of other musics. The important element in the construction of much of this music is the exploration of 'soft' systems, responsive systems as opposed to pure process.The studio and associated machines draw on the grain. The physical properties, of the source material. This overall approach deals with music as texture and as a time-based activity as well as rhythm, melody and harmony. For the most part it can only exist as recorded sound."
