再入荷、大推薦！！ David Maranha Ensembleに参加、リリースはほぼCronicaというポルトガルを愛する女性音楽家SíriaことDiana Combo。本作は全楽曲においてAntoine Chessex、Birds of Delay、John Grzinich、Lemures、Joe Colleyというキャリアのある音楽家のサポートを受けた録音で統一されており、何とBサイド4曲目ではLuciano Cilioのフィールドレコーディングを使ったというレア音源もあり。アブストラクト音響の背景に不明瞭で美しいボーカルを加えた不思議な歌ものアルバム。
Síria is Diana Combo, who in this project joins her voice to the usual practice of combining vinyl records and field recordings, in a gesture of appropriationism that she has been presenting as EOSIN.
It happened as if it had been unwittingly, but wanting it.
It was the proposal to make a version of the song Gloria for a play, and to write and sing an original for another play, by the same author, that paved the way to the transformation of life episodes into texts to be sung.
The lyrics and melodies emerged and took shape spontaneously and rapidly, being the fruit of a prolonged thought about what seems more banal, or more eminent, or more obscure. Only later were added the layers of vinyl records and other recordings that accompany each moment or episode of this serene tidal wave.
The idea behind this sequence was to serve as study and sharing material for live performances. However, at the invitation of Crónica Electrónica, it was then developed for this edition, just after the project’s premiere at Passos Manuel, in Porto, in the context of Natal dos Experimentais 2017.
