This is a 1972 album by Tsutomu Yamashita, a Japanese percussionist who made a name for himself in the field of classical and contemporary music from the late 1960s. He continued to cross genres, ranging from rock to crossover, electronic music, and New Age, creating numerous masterpieces. The album includes compositions such as "Prison Song" (A1) by the German composer Hans Werner Henze, "Seasons" (A2) by Tōru Takemitsu, and "Turris Campanarum Sonantium" (B) by the British composer Peter Maxwell Davies. A1 and A2 feature pre-recorded tapes made by the composers themselves. A1 is based on the poetry of Ho Chi Minh, the founding father of the Vietnamese revolution, and Tsutomu Yamashita recites it. While these compositions are all performed by Yamashita for the first time, Tōru Takemitsu's "Seasons" was also released by Deutsche Grammophon in the same year as a percussion ensemble piece in which Yamashita participated. It's a must-listen album with exceptional performances throughout. This is the original Japanese edition with an included obi strip.

A2: Seasons
B1: Turris Campanarum Sonantium
