RED VINYL, LIMITED TO 500, IMPORT. Born in Tokyo, Takehisa Kosugi is one of the true pioneers of Japanese avant-garde music-making. Under the spell of New York School composers such as John Cage and Morton Feldman, Kosugi co-founded the Group Ongaku with Toshi Ichiyanagi, Yasuhisa Tone, Akimichi Takeda, Mieko Shiomi, Yuji Takahashi, and Nobutaka Mizuno. On September 15, 1961, the Group Ongaku gave its first performance in Tokyo, generally regarded as the first public performance of avant-garde music in Japan. Takehisa Kosugi creates mixed-media sound performances and installations, making use of daily materials and electronic technology, realizing the multiplicity of sounds in space.
