従来には無い独特の演奏スタイルを追求、今までにベルギー(K-RAA-K)³を中心に7、8作ほどアルバムを発表しているユニットRazen。Carl StoneとMiki Yui氏による新ユニットRealistic Monkの1stをリリースしたMeakusmaからの最新作[The Night Receptionist]。ハリー・パーチのトナリティ・ダイアモンドに基づいた演奏を行ったもので、楽器はショーム、サーランギー、ダブルベース、レコーダー等をセレクト、それらの音をフワフワと漂わせマルチメディアアーティストBryan Lewis Saundersの朗読を絡めるという不思議な感覚の音。非常にオススメの一枚。





The Brussels-based Razen make experimental and minimal music with unconventional instruments, focusing on tuning, intonation and the use of intervals. Their The Night Receptionist album sees them working again with performance artist and poet, videographer and self-portrait painter Bryan Lewis Saunders. Recorded during a two-week residency at QO2 in Brussels in 2016, The Night Receptionist employs a just intonation system based on the tonality diamond of Harry Partch. The instruments of choice were sarangi, double bass, recorders, shawm, monochord, santur and a selection of hommels.

Easily the most monochrome and minimal music the band has ever recorded, with a timbral effect that is dreamy and twilight-like, Bryan Lewis Saunders' voice adds a layer of hushed disconnection and disenchantment, recounting the story of a failed gymnast turned night receptionist, wishing for acts of anti-gravity and catching salamanders. It is music for the early hours of the morning, music that explores the undercurrent of thought processes on the threshold of deep sleep.
