"But don't imagine any rigid structure. Fixed points are constantly forced into motion, and the provision of any explicit three dimensional model is avoided entirely. Again we are shown that the priority of music is that it represents a structure that cannot be reduced to the visual or linguistic." (1991 review in 'Bijutsu Techo' art magazine). Hideaki Shimada who started making art and improvised violin experiments in the late 1970s in Kanazawa. As a continuation of some of these ideas, he started adding tapes, which led to the creation of the Agencement electronic project in 1985. Two LPs were released under that name, then his first CD "Viosphere" in 1991. Art into Life is now reissuing this album, plus three previously unissued tracks from the same period, under the title "Viosphere +". Of particular interest is the previously unreleased 1988 studio session with Hironari Iwata - from Toukaseibunshi from the same 80s experimental scene. It's a heavily avant-garde performance for guitar, amplifier and autoharp. Comes in a box with a 12 page booklet of performance photographs from the period and several 2011 visual works. Limited edition of 200.
