Notes

"I have been interested in junk materials and have made sound works since several years ago. Before then, I listened to experimental music as a fan, but the border between music and non-music became meaningless from encounters with Fluxus, sound-art, media-art and others. Since then, I love the texture of sound itself. I collected abandoned analog televisions when the transmitting system of broadcast signals was changed to digital format in 2011. They are one of my favorite instruments at present, and I hold live performances and installations using them. On this CD I used analog TV, cassette tape recorder, and video players. However, the sounds are not manipulated, and I recorded their spontaneous machine-noise only. It this 'experimental music?' I think it may be 'discovered music.' Obviously, I cannot get away from the fascination with ordinary equipment in my life." --Veltz
