Toshi Ichiyanagi - Shikisokuzekuu-Kuusokuzeshiki CD 26048
Shikisokuzekuu-Kuusokuzeshiki (1964)
Extended Voices (tape part, stereo version - 1967)

The details of "Shikisokuzekuu-Kuusokuzeshiki" are unknown except it was created at the NHK electronic music studio. According to Ichiyanagi, there are various discussions for the title, but it seemed to be eventually broadcasted on the radio with the title Kuu after a producer desired and decided to name it. At this time, the original title was used as following the initial intention of Ichiyanagi. In addition, short experimental film Shikisokuzekuu (1974) produced by a filmmaker Toshio Matsumoto where Ichiyanagi was also in charge of tape music was a different work so it does not have any relation with this music work. note: Shikisokuzekuu-Kuusokuzeshiki means 'Form is exactly emptiness. Emptiness is exactly form.‘.

"Extended Voices" can be enjoyed by listening to the Columbia LP album 'Extended Voices' with the collection of voices from the music works. A new version with mixing voices of baritone of Takashi Matsudaira to a monaural tape part was released by OMEGA POINT in 2014, but since the stereo version was found later, it was added as a tape work without voice this time. It can be said that this is a completed work as an independent electronic music.
