"Famous composer JOJI YUASAs legendary earliest musique concrete work AOI-no-UE (1961) and his final electronic music (not computer music) My Blue Sky No.1 (1975) made at NHK electronic music studio. The sound of AOI-no-UE is made from voices of Japanese traditional theater Noh. My Blue Sky No.1 is made from only click and pulse. Both works are world premiere issue as obscure tape music series by OMEGA POINT. This CD contains one of my comprehensive work on music concrete Aoi-noUe and my last electronic music My Blue Sky (No.1) before I went into computer music. Aoi-noUe is a noh-play composed by Ze-Ami in 15th century, based on famous The Tales of Genji written by Murasaki Shikibu in 11th century. The text is recomposed by me keeping original words. And it was sung in the style of Noh-chant by three brothers of Noh actor, Kanze Hideo, Hisao and Shizuo. This work Aoi-no-Ue is composed mainly based on metamorphosed sound of Nohchant. The other sound is concrete sound such as birds songs, water drops, glasses, warped sound of vibraphone, some generated electronic sound and others. My Blue Sky (No.1) is a special electronic work for me, for most of my other works on this field are based on White Noise. Where as only this piece is exceptionally using the other generated sound. However, my thoughts on denying to use so called bare generated waves such as sine, square triangle or saw are not changed. In this work only clicks, pulses and various kinds of beats induced from them, varying piches, width and their frequency of the pulse are adopted. For example I controlled successively occuring pulses of low frequency of sine wave by means of triggering with the frequency of square wave." - Joji Yuasa
