In order to bring back to the original shapes
it is necessary for you to do the process as follows

Jay T. Yamamoto
Track 1. - Side A of the tape
1. The alleged castration of Rudolf Schwartzkogler
2. Version (version)
3. Dirty Mary's Acid Test in Scissors Land
4. The transgressive autoeroticism of Günter Brus
5. Unfinished Landscape #2

- "The alleged castration of Rudolf Schwartzkogler" and "The transgressive autoeroticism of Günter Brus" are noise improvisations based on the famous works of Viennese Actionism. They are not so much direct interpretations of those works as they are my abstract impressions of those works reduced to pure psycho-acoustic expression.
- "Version (version)" came out of a series of experiments in pure "ambient" music (i.e. music not meant to be directly listened to) based on a glitch in my Casio keyboard that caused it to freeze up while producing a continuous tone. I added an electronic "beat" and some musique concrète noises to turn it into a proper "song".
- "Dirty Mary's Acid Test in Scissors Land" is an experiment in trying to get back into doing more long- form songs. Structurally it's based on Pink Floyd's long suite-like songs - "A Saucerful Of Secrets" in particular. Though there's also an Amon Düül influence in there as well. The title is a reference to an especially psychedelic episode of the original (1970s) "Cutey Honey" - I think it was episode 5 or 6.
- "Unfinished Landscape #2" is an out-take from "TSOLF" that I found while going through my tapes to see which ones were okay to recycle. It's an unfinished song in the "Hallucinated Landscape" series. Despite its incomplete state, upon hearing it again I thought it worked well enough on its own and wanted it released here.
Summer 2014 except "Unfinished Landscape #2" (2013)
