遂にリリース！！約20年もの間、実験音楽シーンの第一線で活動を続けている人気アーティストKevin Drummの6枚組ボックス！！結構前から噂されていた作品で、内容は2012年から2016年という近年の録音だけで統一。殆どが初出の音源ですが、2013年[Tannenbaum]の限定50部スペシャル版に付属したカセット音源、Hospital Productionsの豪華ボックスに収録された[Middle Of Nothing]、Editions Megoの2014年カセット[Shut In]の20部だけに付属したCD-Rなど、今や激レアとなっている音源数種も収録。マスタリングはGiuseppe Ielasi。お見逃しなく。
Since his emergence in the experimental music scene, about 20 years ago now, Kevin Drumm has perpetually shaken up conventions of various sub-genres with his major albums, for example, shifting from the tabletop/prepared guitar with his first self-titled album, to noise with Sheer Hell Miasma, to ambient/drone with Imperial Distortion. He has been notably prolific recently, with numerous self-released cdr and digital releases.
Elapsed Time is a collection of some of these recent works, dating from 2012 to 2016: desolate ambient drone (Middle Of Nothing, February), "cassette tape music" or raw musique concrete (Earrach, The Whole House), computer assisted live electronics and rough spectral music (Crooked Abode, Bolero Muter), with additional tracks from Tannenbaum and Shut-In.
This boxset documents one of the key figures of today american avant-garde at his peak of creativity.
Nicely remastered by Giuseppe Ielasi for an optimal listening experience (hifi system recommended).
