VaiNarQ (music for poetry reading) was originally composed as background music for reading VaiNarQ Gyorkto 69: poetry by Ukai Rope/Hisaka Yogo. (these two names are used for the poet. both the new name and the old one.) in December 2005, he asked me how to record his readings with background music into a personal computer, possibly, with new original music. in March 2006, he brought me his rehearsal recording of poetry readings with his pianist friend playing background drone "cosmic" organ sounds. the duration of this recording is over 38 minutes. VaiNarQ (music for poetry reading) is composed from the images of this rehearsal recording. I dubbed his alternative poetry reading over this new original music.

Yamaoka Yasuhiro - From the Buried Stack (2007)

Yamaoka Yasuhiro From the Buried Stack

a compilation of found electronic soundscape fragments in 1996-2004.

27:00 (2004)

06. 03:00
07. 03:30
08. 04:00
09. 04:30
10. 05:00

These 10 files were created originally for an untitled album in 2004. The first plan was including 19 files: 00:30/01:00/01:30/02:00/02:30/03:30/04:00/04:30/05:00/05:30/06:00/06:30/07:00/07:30/08:00/08:30/09:00/09:30/10:00.
The total duration was 95:30, but this was too long to write on to one cd-r. So, I decided to delete the last 2 files: 9:30 & 10:00. This gets it down to 75:30.
The project began in late february 2004. I made trial files, but they suddenly disappeared for the operation system software crashing. The computer needed re-installing it.
When re-started working on this plan, I almost lost my motivation to keep this going on. So, the unfinished album stopped at 27:00, with 2 trial versions for 00:30 and the lost 01:00.
all files created by Yamaoka Yasuhiro March/2004.

11. transferevb
12. transfer

transfer originally created for pole.ep, December 1999. I made another file browse it! from working file of transfer, and this has become track2 of pole.ep.
Later, in August 2000, I made transferevb as a part of macro/run. transfer+ is the mixture of transfer and transferevb

macro/run had to be organized to the one single piece.
The work had been done from November 1999 to August 2000. But, many files were destroyed for some hard drive problems, and I could not rescue them. What only I have now are very small parts and fragments of trial mixes.

1000FM (2000)

24. a
25. a+b
26. b

1000FM is not a proper title for this project. These pieces should be continued as; a, a+b, b, b+c, c, c+d, d, etc. And these pieces should be merged as one long composition.
I don't remember why this project had been terminated. That's why it took very longer time to realize the idea than I expected, I guess...

yamaoka yasuhiro - phantom guitars (symphony in 5 movements) (2003)

yamaoka yasuhiro phantom guitars (symphony in 5 movements)

01. phantom guitars (symphony in 5 movements)

Symphony in 5 movements is made from consecutive compositions phantom guitar from the web site of Nosaka. QuickTime Player has the function to be able to play more than two files at the same time, I tried to play all six files of phantom guitar in some style like a DJ would. The result was nicer than I expected. This is the beginning of this project. Glenn Branca is the composer known for his own ear-roaring guitar orchestra. His well-known compositions have the title Symphony. After this, I add the subtitle Symphony to my work using six phantom guitars. Each movement constructs the symphony as: A1a-A2a-B-A2b-A1b, each duration is: 20sec, 40sec, 60sec, 80sec, 100sec. Ahead of each movement, there is a silent part: 1sec, 2sec, 3sec, 4sec, 5sec. Total duration was planned as 5min 15sec, but I don't know why, it is 5min 14sec in actual duration (the one lost second might have been eaten by phantom). Also, each movements has hidden subtitle: Chaos, Haunting, Sealed, Releasing, Invasion. This formation is taken from classic symphonies, because they have a certain aesthetic style of construction.

Yamaoka Yasuhiro - "Remix?" for Newknown (2004)

Yamaoka Yasuhiro "Remix?" for Newknown

01. Cathedral (not temple)
02. Cathedral (not mosque)
03. Cathedral (not cathedral)
04. Cathedral (not shrine)

In October 2004, NEWKNOWN (ex Newness Known) asked me that he would like to remix one of my works as a part of his remix project: Bohtoku (defilement) Remix. I accepted. A few weeks later, he sent me an e-mail saying that his remix had been done, check these out. These? Yes, he made the four versions from my work! Therefore, I decided to remix his work into four versions. As similar as he did. His composition Cathedral is one of my favourites. I broke down his Cathedral and rebuilt up to the different four buildings from it. They are not temple, or not mosque, not cathedral anymore, not shrine either.

Cathedral Remixes were originally released in 10.2004.

Nord (1992-2001)

YOFonts Nord

The name Nord is, actually, my misspelling to Node (it is where plant's stem/branch starts to grow). I had not aware of it for a long time, and now I leave it misspelled. So, the image of Nord does not come from Scandinavia - Nord is an old French term for Northern, Nordique means Scandinavian. The shape with the ovals in the same proportion for the terminals/curves in letterforms, it suggested me the image from plant. That is why the name came from. I maintained the bold complement which had been completed in 1992, then exhibited it as free font.

In 1999, Donald Beekman sent me his work of my Nord included its thinner/thicker variations. Regular weight for Nord had been already on drawing board, and I decided to add more complemental versions to it by seeing his work. Now its Regular and Black weights are newly available.

Later, I added more complements for Nord as Extended Family: Small Caps, Large Lows (enlarged lower cases as upper cases) and Composite (a combination of these two complements).

Nord is designed by Yamaoka Yasuhiro 1992-2001.
