Random Radio 030: ローターパドルの聴取と計画

Playing tracks by

Takashi Matsudaira [松平敬], Kuniharu Akiyama [秋山邦晴], Joji Yuasa [湯浅譲二], Kenichi Kanazawa, Aki Takase & Daniel Erdmann and more.

Creating a mix of contemporary Japanese music is a daunting task -
especially with my interest spanning approximately 50 years.
Possibly, my first introduction to this geo-region of sound was with
Töru Takemitsu's work "Vocalism Ai" which - coming from a 72-hour
tape montage reduced to just over 4 minutes - was an ear-opening
experience in 1969 that had me rushing out to the record store, buying the LP,
and discovering another wonderful Takemitsu work on it called "Water Music."

Often some of the best, most poetic works - either from Japanese composers themselves or
from composers inspired by Japanese ideas - are lengthy ones that can span anywhere from
a half-hour to many hours which makes it a bit prohibitive when it comes to mixes like this.
Maybe in future mixes of this type there'll be some excerpts of these longer pieces to share.

We start with a composer friend of mine for the past, almost 20 years: Takashi Matsudaira.
