track 1-12:ラジオドラマ「星にきらめくナジャ」の音楽 (1963年作曲) 15'17" (sound file)
track 13-15:産業慰霊塔除幕式の音楽 (1972年作曲) 8'49" (sound file)
track 16:沖縄海洋博メインパビリオンの音楽 (1975年作曲) 10'02" (sound file)

湯浅譲二はラジオドラマのための音楽を多数書いているが、それらは音楽として聴くのに十分な高内容のものが多い。NHKで制作・放送された、アンドレ・ブルトン原作の「ナジャ」のラジオドラマ版の付帯音楽も、短いパートの集積ではあるが様々なコンクレート手法が使われ、シュルレアリストの作品への敬意がうかがえる。そして湯浅氏の手元に残されていた「沖縄海洋博の音楽」や「産業慰霊塔除幕式の音楽」は全く知られていないもの。話題になることもない作品であるが、海洋博の音楽では風土に根ざした叙情性が、産業慰霊塔除幕式の音楽では楽器の音を変調した音響的効果が素晴らしく、いずれも湯浅ワールドといっていい湧き出るイメージの泉である!

1) Nadja, Twincling in Stars
This is the incidental music, by NHK Radio, based on "Nadja" by Andre Breton who made "Declaration of Sur-Realisme". The actual chart of constellations was played by three players[1] (violin, piano and vibraphone) which was supposed as the music score. And birds' voices, electronic sound, sound generated from inside piano, through music concrete tecnique and constructed at the NHK Electronic Music Studio where my first so called pure electronic music "Projection Esemplastic for White Noise" was made in the same year 1963.

2) Music for a Cenotaph for Industrial Victims
This is the music for the unveiling ceremony of a cenotaph for the industrial victims, which was set in the woods of Tama hills suburb of Tokyo. The music consists of;
A) Echoed "wooden bells" in the woods, made from lowered Marimba modurated by square wave.
B) Various metamorphosed sounds reminding industrial works, for the offering flowers by the attendants.
C) Again, reverbrant sound of the wooden bells for the refiring attendants from the celemony.

3) Music for the Main Pavillion of the Okinawa Oceanic Expo
This composition, music concrete work was made prepared for the Oceanic Expo in Okinawa prefecture in 1975. Folk music with an indigenous string instrument (Jamisen), voices of various sea birds, engine sound of a boat, metamorphosed instrumental sound which would remind wind and waves of the sea and chamber orchestral music[2] are combined and constructed. An Italian Folk Song is arranged for chamber orchestra and recorded by the composer as important sound source of this music concrete work, which should be listened as if a recurrent, dear old tune being swayed on the wind coming out of one's rememberance.
