Description: Recording of Alden Jenks's Nagasaki made in the electronic music studio of the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. Both electronic and non-electronic sounds were used (of the latter the human voice and music of the Japanese court, "gagaku", figure prominently). The human voice appears to be electronically generated, or electronic sounds appear to be gagaku instruments, singing voices, or a percussion ensemble. The words used are those of Fujio Tsujimoto at the age of five, of Nagasaki; on the tape they are spoken by the Japanese violinist Mayumi Ohira.
Creator: Jenks, Alden, 1940-
