ディスクと一緒に作品のスコアやブックを付けたり、パッケージにも高い拘りを持つ美麗特殊装丁&面白コンセプチュアルレーベルSuppedaneumの2019年作品。当店人気の作家Stephen Cornfordと来日した事で知名度も高いPatrick Farmerと、Chip Shop Musicにも所属するパーカッショニストDavid Lacey、過去に何度か作品を出している非常に相性の良いコンビがSuppedaneumに初登場。イギリスの芸術家Thomas Martin Nuttによる、(少し難解な?) SI基本単位というものを用いたモジュール式のグラフィックスコアを使ったもので、内容は複数の鐘を組み合わせて旋律を演奏できるカリヨンや、通り過ぎるクルーズ船の超低音を記録した極上のフィールドレコーディング集。とにかく分厚いブックレットに大量に記された幾何学模様っぽい計測スケールが素晴らしい。これは大推薦の一枚です。100部限定。





The SI base units (kilogram, second, metre, Ampere, mole, candela, and Kelvin) underpin measurement in all science and technology. In May 2019, the International System of Units inaugurated the final SI base units' derivation from invariant constants of nature, quietly heralding a new era of reliability in metrology.

«The SI Base Units» is a modular set of graphic scores by the British artist Thomas Martin Nutt that charts the scale of the SI base units within the range of human experience, from micro to mega. The creative space is demarcated between the precision of metrology and the mutability of meaning.

In June 2018, having been lucky enough to obtain a residency at the Sirius Arts Centre in Cobh, Ireland, we spent 5 days walking, eating, and recording. We arrived with minimal equipment and a handful of scores, and after exploring the town it became evident that «Metre», by Thomas Martin Nutt, would be a good way to orientate time to space. Using the score to plot distances for playback and reabsorption, we recorded the infrasound of passing cruise ships and each note of a carillon (itself positioned in a tower high above the town, where each bell can travel the length and breadth of the locale). We utilized these recordings as ways to further fill space and reach a natural state of collapse, or resonance. —Patrick Farmer and David Lacey


Each copy of «Metre» includes a single CD containing two recordings by Patrick Farmer and David Lacey and a copy of the complete score of «The SI Base Units» by Thomas Martin Nutt, which is presented in a 90-page booklet.
