Label: Slaapwel Records
- Slaapwel VIII
"眠りに落ちる時の音楽"をコンセプトにクラシカルなアンビエント~持続音ものを多く手掛けているベルギーSlaapwel Recordsの音源。The Tapeworm、Ash Internationalと英Touch系列のリリースを中心に動いている本国のサウンドアーティスト兼マルチインストゥルメンタリストSimon Scott。殆ど変化のない単調なストリングスのリフを持続させ、少しずつノスタルジーな音風景に落とし込んでいく様な滅茶苦茶美しい手法が貫かれた一枚です。8パネルインサートが付属するボックス型パッケージ。
What could be possibly better to describe a slaapwel release than the artist himself? Especially if he is as friendly & modest as Simon Scott:
"I fall asleep in the sunshine quite a lot listening to music and this was my initial inspiration for composing 'Silenne'. When I played the guitar loop to Dag Rosenqvist, aka Jasper TX, who was staying at my house in Cambridge he suggested I send it into Slaapwel. I was flattered and pleased he'd heard the narcoleptic qualities within this music which I further developed by adding complimentary sine waves from SuperCollider alongside MaxMSP processed vocals that ebb and flow together in the final mix that Taylor Deupree mastered. It generally takes me 33 minutes to drop off so I cut the loop at this mark hence the length of the track". Have a lie down in the sun, play this record and enjoy some bittersweet dreams, because there is absolute nothing for me to add except that this release is simply of a breathtaking beauty that is not to be missed!
