track 1-5:「電子交響曲 第1番」 (1977年作曲)47'18" (tr.2-sound file) (tr.5-sound file)

東京芸大の生え抜きで、ドイツに留学、同大学教授および名誉教授を歴任・・・と書くと、ガチガチの「ゲンダイオンガク」作曲家と思われるかもしれないが、さにあらず。60年代からテープ音楽を手がけ、70年代初頭には芸大に電子音楽スタジオを設置し、その講座も受け持っていた。さらに70年代半ばには都内の自宅に自作シンセサイザーを中心とするスタジオを造り、まったく独自の作品を制作していたという、パイオニア的人物なのだ。その南氏の自作シンセによる最初期の作品「電子交響曲第1番」を初めてリリース!
アナログ・シンセ独特の空間的感触もさることながら、時に重厚な電子ノイズが迫り、ローランド・カインの諸作品にも通じる驚異の内容!穏健派と思われていた人が、実はマニアもぶっ飛ぶ音楽を作っているという、これもまた日本電子音楽の深い淵の秘宝なのだ!

track 1-5: Electronic Symphony No.1 (1977) 47'18"

This unknown composer (not only for foreign fans, but also for domestic) is a pioneer of synthesizer music in Japan. However he was a professor of the top of academy of art university in Japan 'Tokyo Geidai', actually he had a class of electronic music in there firstly. Also he built a private studio for selfmade synthesizer in his home in 1976. This "Electronic Symphony No.1" is the earliest composition of the series. The spacy and very noisy sounds of analog synthesizer are like Roland Kayn's 60's concrete works. - OMEGA POINT

- At the age of 15, having more of an interest in technology than music, I began to build radio sets and vacuum tube amplifiers. In the next 20 years, electronics advanced into the realm of transistors and integrated circuits creating a huge potential for the use of the synthesizer for musical applications.
In the 70's as knowledge about experiments in transistors, integrated circuit oscillators, and filter technology became available in electronic technology magazines, I attempted IC even though I only had vacuum tubes to completed an analog synthesizer, and purchased 2-channel and 4-channel tape recorders.
I was finally equipped with the necessary equipment to create electronic music when tragedy struck my family: my eight-year-old daughter died from liver disease. It compelled me to compose the fifth movement "Sorrow Song the Stars Sang" of the Electronic Symphony No.1 as the requiem for my daughter.

The piece, created from my own analog synthesizer, was distributed throughout the world as an individual work, and only later did I compose the rest of the movements in order to complete Symphony No. 1.- from liner notes
