あらゆる方に体感頂きたい素晴らしい演奏内容!!1980年代半ばに登場し初期はノイズ /インダストリアルの脈で活動、その後独自のアンビエント路線を追求していったベルギーの作曲家Vidna ObmanaことDirk Serries。氏がフリージャズおよびそれに関連する魅力な音楽を紹介すべく立ち上げたレーベルA New Wave Of Jazzの作品。Wandelweiser派にして激ハードコアミニマル・アプローチでお馴染みの作曲家Antoine Beugerの47分の長編[Now Is The Moment To Learn Hope]。Loren Chasse、Matt Hannafin、Dirk Serriesが参加したアンサンブルThe Extradition Ensembleによる演奏で、聞いての通り落下する水の音風景をバックに、ベル、ハープ、クラシックギター、トロンボーンを点描的に落としていく(このタイミングと音色が最後まで凄い)、空間そのものに包み込まれる様な不思議な感覚に陥ります。マスト。



There have been quite a few releases of Antoine Beuger’s music over the past several years and it’s an odd, and very pleasurable thing to consider them en masse. On the one hand, his music is so diaphanous, so air-suffused that you’d think it might be difficult (not to mention unnecessary) to differentiate them mentally. On the other, they’re always very different. There’s that old AMM aphorism: “as alike or unalike as trees” that conveys something of my feelings about Beuger’s work. Now Is the Moment To Learn Hope is performed by the Extradition Ensemble (Loren Chasse, bell; Brandon Conway, classical guitar; Sage Fisher, harp; Matt Hannafin, bowed crotales; Branic Howard, bowed guitar; Evan Spracht, alto trombone). The listener is immediately immersed into the general environment fulling of falling water and clouds of ambient sound. The music is more forthright, kind of oozing through the space, a thicker liquid bleeding through a thinner one. Brief but forceful guitar and harp chords are offset by longer, more languid tones from the trombone, bowed guitar and crotales. The music, already rich at the start, seems to slowly intensify, though more likely it’s the listener’s aural acuity growing more and more perceptive as the piece unfurls. Car horns sound, engines; the bowed portions attain greater depth, denser sonority, though as on the earlier work, the music maintains a steady character, flowing and changing/remaining the same, traffic closing out the set. A moving, enveloping experience." - Just Outside
