Label: Preserved Sound
コンテンポラリー、クラシック、アンビエント、アコースティックものを中心に手がけるポーランドのレーベルPreserved Sound。ヘブデンブリッジの多楽器奏者Visionary HoursことHayden BerryがRichard Youngsを含む数名の音楽家と一緒に作り上げたフォーク&クラシカルなアルバム[Beyond The White]。メロトロン、チェロ、ハルモニウム、バイオリンも登場、このレーベルらしいひたすらに気持ち良いミニマルな楽曲が続くCD & LP両フォーマットで制作された気合の一枚。CD版は限定100。
"Beyond the White" is an album of collaborations with artists including Bruno Sanfilippo, Richard Youngs, Western Skies Motel, Adrian Lane, Trigg & Gusset, Isnaj Dui and 3+ among others.
“I wanted to collaborate with different artists, but still keep some kind of control over the pieces,” says Visionary Hours. “In some cases, I sent the same acoustic guitar piece out to more than one artist, with the idea that two artists would unwittingly collaborate with each other on that particular piece – a blind collaboration, if you like.”
"Beyond the White" is Visionary Hours’ fourth album on Preserved Sound, and is released as limited edition vinyl and CD – limited to 99 vinyl and 150 CDs.
