TADA, MASAMI - mu
Tada had participated in the workshop of Takehisa Kosugi (Taj Mahal Travellers) at the Bigakko. His name is\r\nknown as a main member of legendary improvisation group East Bionic\r\nSymphonia" and "GAP" (both LPs by ALM Records are very rare collectors\r\nitems) in mid 70s. Nowadays Tada mostly interested in photo installations\r\nand sounds by woods, stones and many small objects." - Osamu Abe. "Spacious improvisation with sound objects [bamboo, branches, beanbags, line]\r\nand live electronic sounds [minisynths, effector on wall, voice, body, video\r\nimage]. Gradually enveloping and slowly progressing minimal sound loops of\r\na very hypnotic nature. In gorgeous three fold digipack with reflective\r\npanels (inside). issued in 1997.\r\n"As the fifth in the series of Tada CDs following his "KU", "SON", "NE" and\r\n"I", the artist sought to make this a new CD "MU" a composite work of sound\r\nand the package visuals.\r\nJuxtaposed in this compelling sound mix are the somehow nostalgic sounds of\r\nmaterial materials like stone and bamboo and bare branches cutting through\r\nthe air and the powerful, electronically generated sounds including recorded\r\nelements like human voices.\r\nThe package images are created by a unique Tada technique he calls\r\nelectronic drawing (etching on the surface of photographs with an electric\r\nsoldering gun). On the three inside surfaces a mirror finish is used to\r\ncreate infinite repetitions of the character "MU" which in Japanese both\r\n"nothingness" and-in this case-"limitless."\r\nThis cutting-edge work by Tada combines the realms of "sound" and "art" as\r\nonly he can.
