2018年ベストリリース的一枚!! 70年代初頭よりコンピューターミュージックのパイオニアの一人として活動をしてているCarl Stoneと、非常に高内容な個人作が続いているデュッセルドルフの日本人アーティストMiki Yui氏による新ユニットRealistic Monk。CafeOtoでの2017年のライブパフォーマンスとスタジオレコーディングを合わせた全5曲の1st LP[Realm]。抜群にカッコイイ構成にグイグイ持っていかれる、小さな物音、ピアノ、機械的音響を丁寧に紡ぎ合わせた微細なアンビエンス。David Toopのテキストが付属。









Realistic Monk is the new performance project from Carl Stone in collaboration with artist and composer Miki Yui. Carl Stone is one of the pioneers of live computer music and has been composing electro-acoustic music almost exclusively since 1972. The Village Voice has famously hailed him as 'the king of sampling'. Miki Yui is an artist and composer who develops pieces of music, drawings and sound installations that start from a perception of the faintest sounds and noises and subtly reference existents.

Realistic Monk has previously released the recording of their 2017 live performance at Café Oto, making Realm their de facto debut album. Over the course of five pieces, they focus on small sounds, often at the edge of perception, aiming at a deeper listening and perception of their musical stance and technique. Soundscapes that play with enchantment and disenchantment, emerging out of voices, noises and field recordings and acoustic feedback, their work is as subtle as it is fearless. Realm's play with musical and other signifiers make the album into a highly relevant and even outspoken take on electronic music today.

The album comes with a text by David Toop.

Realistic Monk presents the album during their Europe tour in September 2018 including at the Meakusma Festival.
