これは激ヤバの一枚、お見逃しなく!! 6歳の頃に寝室にあった古いテープレコーダーを用いラジオ番組や自身の歌、また家族や友人のインタビューを録音していたらしい未知の女性音楽家Jeanette Sollénのデビュー作。このレーベルが気合いを入れて発掘〜送り出した作家だけあり、古典的なミニマリズムを継承しつつ、現代音楽、宗教音楽、プログレ的要素、更にはコーラスを従えたヨーデル的歌唱までをも披露する本当に凄まじい音楽性。静謐でありつつどこかディープ&ダークな要素も付き纏うかなりの高内容盤です。現在入手可能なのはLP版のみ。ハンドナンバリング入り、クリアーグリーンヴァイナル仕様。







Dark Companion come up roses again with dazzling, never-before-heard haunting compositions and songs by Jeanette Sollén, compiled from her archive specifically for this album. 300 individually handnumbered transparent emerald green audiophile vinyl. "My first recordings were on an old tape recorder in my childhood bedroom. I spent a lot of time with that machine. Listening to the radio and pressing the green and red buttons when something I liked came on. And I seemed to have liked a lot. One tape I still have, from when I was about 6, contains an eclectic aural tapestry filled with fragments from all kinds of music. And then, in the middle of some hit song, my own singing and chatting appears.
My fascination with the machine grew and I soon began to record interviews with family, friends, and neighbors. Even random people passing in the streets. I also started recording my own songs in a more organized way, on separate cassettes labeled ‘My songs’. At around 9 years of age I recorded ‘Stars in Space’. I remember it very clearly. I’d written the lyrics in English, and the recording con- tained various sound effects I’d added while singing, such as rhythmically stomping in gravel. The first line went: Space is a big black world, full of fire, we call them staaaaars – Stars in space, in space, in space, in space... Looking back on these memories, I can safely say that not much has changed. The media might be different, but the recording machine is still my favorite toy. Voice and ambient sounds are still my main material. And the human experience in this mesmerizing, communicating universe, is still my topic of choice."
