This album contains the first live synthesizer recordings in Japan, made in 1978 under the supervision of HIdeki Matsutake on the eve of his participation in YMO. The participating musicians include Jun Fukamachi, Shuichi Ponta Murakami, Katsumi Watanabe, and Hiroki Inui, all of whom were active at the forefront of the fusion scene at the time, and their groovy performances are accompanied by cosmic synthesizer sounds. The style of this album is progressive crossover/fusion similar to Jun Fukamachi's masterpieces such as "Rokku" and "On The Move," and Fukamachi and Ponta's performance is excellent, reminiscent of those works.
