All composed by Hideki Nakazawa
Recorded live by Taku Unami at the Music Hall of Kichijoji Art Museumon,
Kichijoji, Tokyo, December 8, 2012

This is the complete, uncut recording of the concert of the same name, held
in the Music Hall of Kichijoji Art Museum on December 8, 2012. All of the
tunes were composed by visual artist Hideki Nakazawa under the banner of
"methodicism." Pieces using two different systems--polyphonic tunes
created from the Japanese syllabary, and instrumental pieces for solo
performance--were performed alternately. Polyphonic tunes like "Japanese
Syllabic Invention in Two Voices" and "Japanese Syllabic Canon in Three
Voices" were realized with the voices of sei, Madoka Kouno, and Junichiro
Tanaka; and instrumental pieces such as "From 1 to 56" and "Monophony
with 768 Musical Tones Each Accompanied by a Grace Note" were
performed on piano by Yuji Takahashi. The performances were recorded by
Taku Unami. In these 51 tracks (total 46 minutes 58 seconds), the unique
excitement permeating the venue comes across in the applause and feeling
of tension between tunes, the composer's on-stage talk at the end, and so
on. Included with the CD is an insert with the e-mails exchanged by Yuji
Takahashi and Hideki Nakazawa in the period between the performance
request and the concert day (in Japanese only). Different from Nakazawa's
previous studio-recorded CD Music Works - The Method Music since 1997
+ Sounds for "Silly CG" Animations before 1996
(Naya Records, naya-0003,
2006), this is a rare live album showcasing the performers' unique
individuality.
