- BR POP15
自国ボーランドの知られざる電子音楽及びアヴァン記録のアーカイヴ制作、また新たな先鋭的作品の出版に勤しむBoltの作品。当店大推薦の英国エクスペリメンタル/フォーク界の奇才Richard YoungsがこのレーベルのPopulistaシリーズより発表した氏の真骨頂的ピュア録音[Plays Parallel Winter]。ワルシャワで行なったショーの際に様々な条件が重なり演奏された楽曲であり、自身の歌声とギター&ツィターというシンプルな編成で続いていく33分ノンストップのアコースティック内省録音。不思議な暖かみと恍惚感がメチャクチャ良いです。
Voice, guitar and zither by Richard Youngs. Composed, recorded, mixed and mastered by Richard Youngs.
Motto of Populista Winter Triangle came about on 13th of December, 2014. It was a cold and windy day, a classic of pre-winter Warsaw, cold, wet, transparent yet at the same time grey, or perhaps mostly grey. It was also a day of the first Warsaw show of Richard Youngs in Komuna// Warszawa. Not fully by accident, there was a piano in the room, which made Richard propose performing 'ParallelWinter'. Few hours later he was introducing the piece to the audience saying that its duration is something in between fifteen and forty five minutes. It is because, he continued, that the piece has as many lines as we have winter days and hence is something one needs to go through, not unlike going through winter.
