価格: 1,264円 (税込)
Label: Thalamos - THLMS09

プライベート作を合わせここ2年程活発な音盤リリースが続いているオースラリアのアーティストMatthew Hopkins。オープンリールを即興的に操作して制作したという2015年〜2016年の録音[CALLS]。声ネタを徹底加工したコンクレートものですが、なんとも言えない抽象アプローチがこのレーベルにガッチリとハマっています。限定100部。





"CALLS presents 11 improvised pieces recorded on a reel-to-reel machine throughout 2015 and 2016.
Employing a mixed bag of source material and a half drafted vocal approach, these 11 tracks explore the notion of ‘contact calls’,
which are irregular, non-specific sounds many social animals make to maintain contact within a group. The group in this instance
includes more than just other members; an expanded cast of objects, figures, nature, and works of art act as the recipients of these calls.
There is some sort of dialogue between myself as the caller, and this conglomerate of recipients, but it is not normal talking.
I’m not asking questions, responding to requests, or reacting through sound in any way – just simply keeping in contact".
Matthew P. Hopkins, August 2016
