Music For Commercials
1987 Crammed Discs/Made To Measure (Belgium/UK) cd: MTM 12 CD , Tokuma cd: 32CRD-111
Essential disk of miniature marvels. Includes one longer track for a Kawaguchi
computer video. Volume 12 of the Made to Measure series, the Japanese
issue is licensed, not the more usual other way around.

Shadow of China
1990 Victor/Invitation cd: VICL-29
Nice soundtrack, with of course, Chinese instruments. It later gets sax filled.
Great Packaging with an acetate slipcase. I think a track was used in Greenaway's
film "The Pillow Book".
1991 Les Disques Du Soleil et de l'Acier (Fr) CDSA 54018
Ralf Kraus writes: A very interesting CD. The music is Latin
with much Sax, but a few songs are very difficult to listen to, because
they are very experimental. The CD is the right thing to play in the background
when you meet a few friends and drink a cool glass of wine. (I like it
Besame Mucho (sax mix)
More electronics than the title would lead you to suspect. The first track
has weird slowed down vocals. Strange fun.
Yasuaki Shimizu and Saxophonettes
97.9.22 Victor cd: VICL-60112
An album of Bach covers in various minimal/avant/electronica styles. Some real
interesting stuff. Though sokme women speaking edited small talk in english
over one track seems distracting. The openning track is ahead of it's time in
a microsound style. Maybe intentional but I can't help but compare Glenn Gould's
vocalizing to the digital extra sounds in the openning. On other tracks there
are somewhat manipulated vocals and sax arrangemnts.
