Terry Fox
Linkage

Back in 1982 to prosaically named Terry Fox made music from taking piano wires out of the piano and bowing, plucking, hitting and scraping them. The A side of this record features most of the above forms of hammering at something using an array of mallets and other hitting devices. The B side consists of one lengthy piece where he gets a really long piece of wire and records the drones that come from it. Totally unique and totally hypnotic.

The Taj-Mahal Travelers
July 15, 1972

I guess you could call The Taj Mahal Travellers an experimental psychedelic jam band. They were formed in Tokyo by Japanese Underground legend Takehisa Kosugi. Their flair for musical experimentation was not matched by their ability to think of imaginative titles. The album, July 15, 1972, is simply named after the day it was recorded, and the three lengthy tracks are simply named after the time they started and finished, take the opening track,'The Taj-Mahal Travelers Between 6:20 - 6:46 P.M.', as an example. Kosugi was also known for his involvement with Hi Re Centre and Group Ongaku.

Yoshi Wada
Lament For The Rise And Fall Of The Elephantine Crocodile

Lament For The Rise And Fall Of The Elephantine Crocodile by Yoshi Wada is a prime piece of minimalist music which has been compared to works by the likes of Terry Riley and Pauline Olveros. It was originally released in 1982.  It involves the droning sounds of voice and bagpipes and was recorded in an empty swimming pool. A trip to Scotland ensured that the Kyoto-born, New York-based artist fell in love with the famous Scottish instrument enough to centre his debut album around it.
