 このシリーズの目的から、現在に至るぼくの創作の軌跡を流れの中で捉えていただくために、例えば表現として未熟、つまりそれひとつでは十分な存在理由を持てないような昔の作品でも、今までの活動の過程で重要であれば取り上げています。また、そこでできるだけぼくなりの評価や他の作品との関係を言葉によっても明らかにしておこうと考えています。それらによって現代の音楽創作一般、そしてぼく自身の活動に興味と関心を持ってくださる方々にとっては、 少なくともこのCDシリーズがある作家の創作の軌跡として聴いてもらう価値のあるものになるだろうと考えているからです。


About the CD series:
This series of CD's contains most of my pieces which were composed between 1974 and 1997, with the exception of works which were previously published by Fontec. Among the listeners of this new CD series, I hope there will be those who have previously listened to and enjoyed "The Red Riding Hood Accompanist" and "Song of the East."
In this series of CD's, I have chosen pieces which were from my early development, but which were important in my artistic development. A current self-evaluation and critique of my works is included, as well as an explanation of how each composition builds upon musical ideas from previous pieces. I hope that this combined text and music will be worth listening to and enjoyable for those or you who are interested in my work, and in contemporary music.
This CD series consists of three CD's plus one extra. The musical contents of each CD corresponds to the changes in my personal lifestyle and surroundings. I decided to use original recordings, many of them from cassette tapes, and the quality of the sound varies. Therefore, please understand that some parts may be difficult to listen to.
Before you buy this CD, please read the warning on each CD carefully.
