The music sales which united the right income by musical secondary use with the charged 
music distribution which includes download and streaming service and physical media such
as CDs, vinyl was the world's No.1 in the 2012 fiscal year.

Vinyl Experience(2)

Text:Fumimasa Hori

Before looking for records of current situation, let's look back on the history of records briefly.

Under the direction of Peter Goldmark who is a PhD in Electrical Engineering, It was 1948 
that American Columbia Records succeeded in commercializing mass production of LP 
records (33 rpm,diameter 30cm).It came to be called LP (short for Long Playing), because 
they could be played long time much the same size as the vinyl LP before.

New Nambu(1)


It is a book of “The man of jasmine” I found the word “fifth column” first.That is  the autobiography of a female poet,  Unica Zürn, her name sounds like a jelly in Japanese.She seemed to be ill a little.

Before becoming a 20-year-old, I was interested in such a word “schizo” or “paranoia”.Also, I got into now so called “outsider art” or literary version of it.It is as is often the case. Because, perhaps I was influenced by Yasutaka Tsutsui(1).
