Machinefabriekのプライベートリリースは素晴らしいものが多いですが、本作はその中でも間違いなく最高峰と言っていいとんでもない完成度!!
Soccer Committee名義の音源を当店で紹介している、Machinefabriekと古くから親交のある女性SSWのMariska Baarsが9年振りとなるRutger Zuyderveltとの共作を発表。空間に揺蕩い続けるという事をコンセプトとした、フランス語で「水」を意味する[eau]というタイトルが付けられた作品であり、穏やかに揺れる音の波、また細かく割れたオーディオの断片がせせらぎの様に漂うイメージで作られた極めて抽象的な音源。終わりも始まりもない、只々Mariska嬢の解体された音断片に身を委ねて頂きたい傑作。マスタリングがStephan Mathieuという点も重要。



Mariska Baars and Rutger Zuydervelt go way back. And although they regularly work together in the quartet Piiptsjilling, their last effort as a duo stems from 2008, the album ‘Drawn’ (on Foxy Digitalis/Morc).

But now ‘eau’ is here. ‘eau’ (pronounced “oh”) means ‘water’ in French, and that’s how it sounds; like gently rocking waves of sound, or like a babbling sonic stream of fractured audio debris. It also sounds a bit like the equivalent of sunlight dancing on the ripples of a lake’s surface.

‘eau’ is not really a song, or a composition. Well, technically it is, but it functions more like an atmosphere that fills the space. Just let it play (on repeat…) and let the sounds hang in the room - let them co-excist with any other sound that’s there. Open a window if you wish! Or, experience the trip on headphones, let these soft tones, gentle voices, buzzes and crackles tickle the inside of your skull.

‘eau’ was mastered by the one and only Stephan Mathieu, who made this carefully crafted audio patchwork shine even more.
