A masterpiece album released in 1974 by Japanese composer Yuzuru Kondo, who has left more than 150 works since his debut in 1968 with "Monologue and Five Fragments. It features pianist Yuji Takahashi, who later left a general commentary on his book of the same title that sharply discussed the boundaries between avant-garde and post-avant-garde, his sister Aki Takahashi, harpist Fumiko Shinozaki, flutist Hiroshi Koizumi, marimba player Yasunobu Yamaguchi, and others. All of the pieces were composed between 1973 and 1974, with A2, a multiple recording of Fumiko Shinozaki's harp, attempting to maintain a constant timbre and intensity while using harmonics to emphasize the attack shift. Aki's electric piano joins the electric piano, and the stationary sustained sounds of the electric piano are layered with the moving sustained sounds of the viola and double bass. According to the description, "Re-examining the attitude toward sound and the structure of music from an unstructured point of view was the entrance to the "music of the line. The obi is not originally included.
