Includes a bonus mini-CD reissue of a rare 'Play On Animals (Choju Gigaku)' [EM1094CD] + foldout thick paper sleeve
ABOUT BONUS DISC: A miniature reproduction of 'Play On Animals (Choju Gigaku)', which has been reissued on 7" (rated as one of 2011's top releases by Byron Coley of The Wire). Pressed on a mini-CD (8cm) and packed in a triple foldout sleeve, same style as a original 1970 issue, and is inserted in the EM1098CD sleeve. The 1978 LP 'I Saw The Outer Limits,' reissued here, was the first full-length non-soundtrack release by Matsuo Ohno. The record was a huge step for him, being non-programmatic music, designed to stand alone, free of visual imagery. Ohno himself has stated that he was uninterested in notions of message, expression and representation. Ohno had nothing to do with the title and subtitle of this album. Shinji Hinoki, a producer at Toho Records, approached Ohno with the offer of releasing an album; Hinoki perhaps envisioned something to cash in on the popularity of the synth-driven elements of Pink Floyd - what he got was something much more abstract and otherwordly. Hinoki supplied both title and subtitle, including the latter's variant spelling of "marijuana," a ploy to evade Japanese censors. On these recordings, made at Sogosha in Tokyo, his private studio, Ohno used the AMS Synthi AKS, which at that time in Japan carried a price close to that of a family car, the newly released Roland System 100 (three of these, in fact), and a custom-made synth. He combined these synthesizers with his virtuosic control of analog tape recording techniques, resulting in a magnificent LP. The original vinyl release was, however, somewhat marred by 50 Hz hum generated during the mastering process at Toho Studios. This EM CD reissue of 'I Saw The Outer Limits' restores the masterpiece to its primal, clear, massive glory.
