P-MODEL 20th ANNIVERSARY PROJECT
"MUSIC INDUSTRIAL WASTES : P-MODEL OR DIE"


For 20 years since its organization, we the techno-pop group P-MODEL,
have spent enormous energy to be the artists on the vanguard of sound
and right MUSIC COMMUNICATION, in this past-heritagetic music industry.
A dream, which seemed impossible to come true, is about to be realised
through technology that anyone can use: The Internet and MP3 audio compression.

With the use of this technology, P-MODEL are now going to perform a large project entitled
"MUSIC INDUSTRIAL WASTES: P-MODEL OR DIE" to redevelop an environment for our activities.
This project, that includes providing music on the Internet through MP3,
will be continuing until at least the advent of 2000.
MP3 technology that directly links both musician & listener across the Internet,
rings the death knell of the past-heritagetic music industry,
which in itself is the personification of vice and conservatism.
Moreover, this technology brings forth possibilities of a NEW music scene.

We think this is wonderful.

The conservative music industry cannot comprehend nor utilise validly the possibilities of this emerging technology-
not only does the industry feel fear but it also tries to erase its possibilities.
And although musicians desire to grow musically with their listeners,
the industry continues to value music as just consumable INDUSTRIAL product,
and has been WASTING the existence of true music and musicians desire.
As a result, its influence is waning because of its loss of salable product.
That is to say, THIS is the karma of the music industry.

We propose to rebuild a new music scene, making use of these WASTES.
On starting this project, we terminated our contract with a major record company that had been just a barrier for us.
After that came cooperation from our supporters, and now we have begun
preparations for releasing our new works through MP3 technology.
We have not solved all problems. We might be assailed from any organisations by unfair reasons.
Nevertheless, this is the job that we have to do.
However, P-MODEL will avoid favouritism to just listeners with passports to Cyberspace.
For those who cannot connect to the Internet, we continue to release CD packages through the TESLAKITE label.

"MUSIC INDUSTRIAL WASTES : P-MODEL OR DIE"
means the expiration of a certain era.

"MUSIC INDUSTRIAL WASTES : P-MODEL OR DIE"
means the reconstruction of the music scene.

"MUSIC INDUSTRIAL WASTES : P-MODEL OR DIE"
means the restoration of music, and it's listeners.

To all engineers and supporters who move with the advances in music communication
and have dealt with the technologies related to this project, and to all our listeners
- THANK YOU
