Hexahedra by Shinʾichi Matsushita

Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 141 min
Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA

Dr. Shin ‘ichi Matsushita was one of the most prominent of the 20th Century Japanese composers. His output ranged from early works, somewhat influenced, structurally, by Berg, through compositions using taped sounds, choral works, and experimental works for percussion. This piece, “Hexahedra” is based on a graphed score of uncommon beauty. The physical appearance of the score, and its title, are suggestive of Dr. Matsushita’s other profession: he was a professor of mathematics in Osaka, specializing in topology. This performance, or rather this realization, of the score was recorded at KPFA’s San Francisco studio on December 17, 1965. It was a labor of profound love on the part of Robert Moran, Ian Underwood, and Jim Messinger, who played piano and percussion instruments. (from KPFA Folio)
