Beautiful package and artwork by artist. issued in 1997. "This is Tada first CD featuring only electronically produced sound.

Nowadays Tada mostly interested in photo installations and sounds by woods, stones and many small objects." - Osamu Abe. "Spacious improvisation with sound objects [bamboo, branches, beanbags, line] and live electronic sounds [minisynths, effector on wall, voice, body, video image]. Gradually enveloping and slowly progressing minimal sound loops of a very hypnotic nature. In gorgeous three fold digipack with reflective panels (inside). issued in 1997. "As the fifth in the series of Tada CDs following his "KU", "SON", "NE" and "I", the artist sought to make this a new CD "MU" a composite work of sound and the package visuals. Juxtaposed in this compelling sound mix are the somehow nostalgic sounds of material materials like stone and bamboo and bare branches cutting through the air and the powerful, electronically generated sounds including recorded elements like human voices. The package images are created by a unique Tada technique he calls electronic drawing (etching on the surface of photographs with an electric soldering gun). On the three inside surfaces a mirror finish is used to create infinite repetitions of the character "MU" which in Japanese both "nothingness" and-in this case-"limitless." This cutting-edge work by Tada combines the realms of "sound" and "art" as only he can. " - SOH Gallery. Highly recommended!

"Spacious live improvisation with sound objects (stone, wood, bamboo) at SOKO Gallery in Tokyo.Tactile sounds and their resonances as explored in a room in a considered manner. issued in 1993. "This is the second of Tada Masamis original CD recordings. His palette of sound ranges from the transparent purity of sounds generated from natural materials like wood, stone and bamboo to the subtlety of rare ethnic instruments and the intensity of sounds born of violent action. Taped at a live performance in a large warehouse, the acoustic qualities of the space further accentuate the contrasts of sound." - SOH Gallery. Highly recommended!
