We, moderns, lose ourselves in our busy modern life.
We wish to recover our native selves.
Who take this wish in advance of us are persons who are called "psychosis", I think, because they are free from common ideas and common senses and carry their self-realization out through the freedom. That is, because they are not infected with social derangement and keep their individuality, they return to human nativeness. In this way, the paradox, that mental derangement goes to normalcy, holds good. Behavior as their own rhythm may give us primitive human pleasant sensation.
The whole work is monophonic to give expression to simplicity.
It is performed on a synthesizer, controlled by a computer through MIDI. Each pitch of each tone is controlled on a cent (1/100 semitone). It is apparently complicated, but according to essence of human, the uncertainty of pitch is natural, because a man can never sing a tone on same pitch again.
