This is volume 8 in Omega Point's Obscure Tape Music of Japan series, featuring the recorded live performance of Japanese avant garde maestro Toshi Ichiyanagi. He has stood out from the other more moldy academic groups of composers due to his groundbreaking and mindblowing work during the '60s. Thus, he was invited to perform as part of the concert series "Japanese Experimental Music 1960s" at the Art Tower Mito in Ibaraki in 1997. The noisy and radical sound of this performance shows the composer has not changed the tone of his experimentalism one bit. Ichiyanagi improvised on a prepared piano and the sound was modulated by live-electronics. Painter Sadamasa Motonaga (b.1922, a member of Gutai) projected abstract figures on the walls of the performance space. Limited edition of 700 copies.
