NekonoTopia, NekonoMania is a remastered edition of a Jazz album featuring Seigen Ono and several Jazz all-stars including Bobby Previte and John Zorn.
“I decided to compose music for the Comme des Garçons show, and performed it for the first time at the men’s Paris Fashion Week in September 1987.
An Italian (CDG) distributor came to visit us backstage. He asked me to compose music for an exhibition that would be the precursor to the Milano Salone International Furniture Fair the following year. Henri Arcand, who was Jean Cocteau’s cinematographer, did the lighting, Peter Lindbergh did the photography, and I did the live music.
Berliner Nachte part 1, 2, 3 & 4 were created by myself in a studio and church in Milan. The other songs were completed in about three hours at the NHK studio for the new wave drama Nekonotopia Nekonomania.
John Zorn was coming to Tokyo at the time, so I asked him to play the saxophone. Also, “Planador” and “Caramba” were recorded in New York, probably on Sony video Hi8.” – Seigen Ono
John Zorn, Hiroki Miyano, Tomohiro Yahiro, Bobby Previte, Eric Sanko, Jill Jaffe, Maxine Neuman, Evan Lurie and Seigen Ono
