古い変則的名作の復刻を得意とするCorbett vs. Dempseyですが本作は2016年という最近の録音もの。奇妙に光る"ライトボックス"と手書きのサインで指揮をするオーケストラThe Lightbox Orchestraのコンダクターを務め、作曲家、チェロ奏者、ジャズミュージシャンとして活動しているFred Lonberg-Holm。本作は氏が米国フロリダ州のエバーグレーズ国立公園にて2016年1月と2月に、カエル、ヒキガエルの声と共にチェロ演奏を録音した非常に興味深い実験演奏もの。クレジットにノイズ担当で"Amphibians Of The Everglades"という名義がありますが、コレが生物達の事であり、録音内容は殆ど現場の自然音と同化し歪なノイズを発するチェロ演奏の面白フィールドレコーディング・ワークス。Corbett vs. Dempseyの仕事は本当に素晴らしい。

Never one to shy away from unusual projects, cellist Fred Lonberg-Holm set out into the mosquito-infested swamps of Florida’s Everglades in search of a host of amphibious collaborators. In the night air, he bowed and plucked in conversation with the environment, especially the vocalizing frogs, which seemed to take him on as an exotic member of their own. Impeccably documented by the experienced soundscape artist and field recordist Gustavo Matamoros, working like a perverse herpetologist, Lonberg-Holm may have created a whole new genre of experimental audio: outdoor interspecies improvisation. Other features of the evening ambience are warmly embraced – a passing car, mysterious water noises, even the incessant mosquitoes. Determining where these swamp sounds end and the maestro’s cello begins is perhaps the greatest challenge of all. Not something you can say often: Bow Hard at the Frog is a genuinely unique sonic experience.

Recorded at Everglades National Park the evening of February 02, 2016, as part of the January, 2016, Subtropics Artist Residency at Audiotheque: Fred Lonberg-Holm, resident artist; Gustavo Matamoros, collaborator. Gustavo used Sennheiser microphones in a mid- side configuration straight into a SoundDevices digital field recorder.
As an integral part of his compositional practice, Gustavo Matamoros makes creative audio recordings of South Florida environments for sound diaries, artwork, performances, installations and collaborations with other artists.
The title comes from a direction in the score for Iannis Xennakis’s “Kottos.”
