Synthesizer player Yoshitaka Azuma. After working as a member of the folk group "Itsutsu No Akai Fusen", he was influenced by Isao Tomita's multi-recorded works in the mid-1970s and entered the world of synthesizers. This 1981 release work that is one of the "Asian trilogy" that he has been working on since around 1980. It's an oriental electronic experimental work that mixes kraut electronics similar to Tangerine Dream with Asian influences. All 4 tracks are full of energy. Masaya Matsuura, well-known for his game music and Gontiti works, began working part-time at Azuma's studio and used it as a base for releasing self-released masterpiece and other works.

シンセサイザー奏者東祥高。フォーク・グループ五つの赤い風船のメンバーとして活動した後、70年代半ば冨田勲の多重録音作品に影響を受けシンセサイザーの世界へ。本作は80年頃から手掛けていたという「エイシアン三部作」のひとつとなる81年作。Tangerine Dreamにも通じるクラウト・エレクトロニクスにアジアの響きを織り交ぜたオリエンタルな電子エクスペリメンタル作品。全4曲みなぎってます。ゲーム音楽やゴンチチ作品でお馴染みの松浦雅也も東のスタジオにてアルバイトを始めそこを拠点に傑作自主製作盤や各作品をリリースしていたようです。
