Label: No Rent Records
本業はグラフィックデザイナー、その感覚をそのまま音制作に持ち込みイキナリKyeからヴァイナル作品でデビューしたオーストラリアのMatthew Revert。その後もcaduc.、Erstwhileから素晴らしい作品を連発、本作は盟友Jason Lescalleetのサポートを受けた初のカセットフォーマット。Gabi Losoncyのライナーの通り、ちょっと尋常でない世界観です。Vitrineファンは是非。限定100。
On Matthew Revert's new album 'Illness Seminars', one enters a space where accumulations of sound cluster around you, seemingly absolute and meaningful as you experience them, only to disappear as you proceed. The particular environment one is in might be a bar where people have refused to be quiet for the band and so the band refuses to actually play, and so one goes outside, comes back in, goes to the john, goes to the bar, has a drink, has a drink. No matter what, the listener has a sense that they and their choices are responsible for what is occurring on the tape. You cannot deny your responsibility. In this environment sound can be understood almost statistically, with location and frequency of occurrence denoting just how ill you really are. - Gabi Losoncy
Mastered by Jason Lescalleet
